香蕉视频苹果下载Ukraine has received additional planes and parts from allies not including the U.S., Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said Tuesday, as Kyiv tries to counter a Russian offensive in the east of the country and Washington and other North Atlantic Treaty Organization member nations rush to provide Ukraine with more military hardware.

The goal of the plane and parts transfers was to help Ukraine get more aircraft in the air, Mr. Kirby said. He didn't say what nations supplied the aircraft, how many they provided or when the aircraft arrived in Ukraine.

香蕉视频苹果下载Russia in recent days has been pounding Ukraine with strikes that the Pentagon says are intended in part to make it harder for Kyiv to resupply its forces in the east. Russia's Defense Ministry said Tuesday that Russian forces had shot down three Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicles and said that a Ukrainian anti-aircraft missile launcher had been destroyed near Barvinkove, which is in eastern Ukraine.

OTTAWA--Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Tuesday his government plans to send heavy artillery to Ukraine, as Russia launched a new military offensive in the country's east.

香蕉视频苹果下载"Ukrainians have fought like heroes over the past number of months," Mr. Trudeau said during a press conference. "They're not just fighting for Ukraine, they're fighting for the values that underpin so many of our free, democratic societies."

香蕉视频苹果下载Mr. Trudeau said Canada has been in close contact with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to ensure it is responding to the country's specific needs, and the most recent request was for heavy artillery. He didn't provide details on what kind of artillery Canada plans to send or when it might arrive.

The Canadian announcement came shortly after Mr. Trudeau participated in a video conference香蕉视频苹果下载 with President Biden and other world leaders to discuss their response to the situation in Ukraine. Mr. Biden indicated to reporters later Tuesday that the U.S. plans to send more artillery to Ukraine, in addition to the heavy weapons it has already sent.

香蕉视频苹果下载Canada has previously pledged both lethal and nonlethal military equipment to Ukraine, including rocket launchers, hand grenades and body armor. It has also provided financial and humanitarian assistance.

Halliburton Co. became the latest large Western company to report a financial hit due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The Houston-based oil-services company said Tuesday that it had recorded a pre-tax charge of $22 million in the first quarter, primarily tied to the write-down of its assets in Ukraine, including $16 million in receivables. Halliburton said last month that it had suspended future business in Russia as it complied with sanctions and that it was winding down operations in Russia. Halliburton declined to comment further.

A number of global businesses are confronting the possibility of losses as a result of the war. British energy giant BP PLC, which has said it would exit its nearly 20% stake in a Russian government-controlled oil producer, faces a potential loss of as much as $25 billion.

The departure of Western oil companies from Russia is also a blow to the country's energy sector. Halliburton rivals Baker Hughes Co. and Schlumberger Ltd. have also said they were winding down work or suspending new investment and technology deployment in Russia, where international companies have previously provided advanced exploration and well-treatment techniques.

WASHINGTON—The U.S. and its allies underscored their commitment Tuesday to providing aid to Ukraine as Russia continued its assault on the country.

香蕉视频苹果下载“The leaders reiterated their commitment to continue providing security, economic and humanitarian assistance to Ukraine in its time of need,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said following a video conference between President Biden and other world leaders. “The leaders affirmed their solidarity with the Ukrainian people and condemned the humanitarian suffering caused by Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified invasion.”

During the roughly 80-minute call, Ms. Psaki said the leaders discussed countries’ efforts to impose sanctions on Russia and agreed that they would continue coordinating through the Group of Seven, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the European Union. Ms. Psaki said Mr. Biden and the leaders also spoke about providing more ammunition and security assistance to Ukraine. Asked by reporters on Tuesday afternoon whether he plans to send more artillery to Ukraine, Mr. Biden said, “Yes.”

香蕉视频苹果下载Ms. Psaki said the U.S. is continuing to discuss additional sanctions on Russia, adding that new measures could be announced this week.

香蕉视频苹果下载In addition to Mr. Biden, the following leaders joined the call, according to the White House: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, European Council President Charles Michel, President Emmanuel Macron of France, Chancellor Olaf Scholz of Germany, Prime Minister Mario Draghi of Italy, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida of Japan, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, President Andrzej Duda of Poland, President Klaus Iohannis of Romania, and Prime Minister Boris Johnson of the U.K.

香蕉视频苹果下载Toy maker Hasbro Inc. said it could take a roughly $100 million hit this year from its decision to stop shipping products to Russia, quantifying for the first time the financial impact of the country’s invasion of Ukraine.

香蕉视频苹果下载The owner of brands including Nerf, Monopoly and Dungeons & Dragons is among many U.S. companies that have curtailed or ceased operations in Russia since the conflict began in February.

香蕉视频苹果下载Hasbro’s disclosure came as the company reported net revenue rose 4% to $1.16 billion in its fiscal first quarter and raised its outlook for the full year to mid-single digit growth in operating profit from its earlier estimate of a low-single-digit increase.

The Pentagon has been asking allies over the past week to provide ammunition and other artillery to Ukraine, a U.S. defense official said, amid worries that Ukraine’s fighters could reach dangerously low levels of ammunition within weeks.

Ukrainian fighters are going through thousands of rounds a day, and some of their guns use ammunition that isn’t compatible with U.S.-made guns. Because of that, the U.S. is reaching out to nations with stocks of compatible ammunition including Poland, France, the Czech Republic and Canada, the official said.

Last week, the U.S. announced it was sending 18 155-mm howitzers and 40,000 rounds of ammunition香蕉视频苹果下载. But U.S. defense officials say that, based on their assessments of what Ukrainian forces are using and what they have in stock, they are concerned the supply may only be enough for days of fighting.

The Pentagon is also in talks with Lockheed Martin香蕉视频苹果下载 about increasing production of weapons destined for Ukraine, the company said Tuesday. Lockheed Chief Executive Jim Taiclet was among CEOs from U.S. defense companies who met with Pentagon leaders last week to discuss Ukraine-related weapons needs and production levels, the company said.

Two of the largest U.S. ammunition makers have already donated one million rounds apiece, mainly for AK-47 rifles. Ammo Inc. Chief Executive Fred Wagenhals said the company received confirmation on March 20 that its shipment had arrived in Ukraine, having sat at the border for over two weeks before transport and handover to the country’s military could be arranged. Vista Outdoor Inc. also donated a million rounds for small arms.

Russia said it is launching a new phase of its invasion of Ukraine, focusing on the country's east.

香蕉视频苹果下载Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told India Today that “another stage of this operation is beginning, and I am sure this will be a very important moment of this entire special operation.”

He said the purpose of its offensive is to “fully liberate” the regions of Luhansk and Donetsk in eastern Ukraine.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Monday that Russian forces have begun a fresh offensive in eastern Ukraine, signaling the latest phase of an invasion that has led to a new confrontation between Russia and the West.

“Russian troops have started the battle for Donbas, which they had been preparing for a long time,” Mr. Zelensky said in an address late Monday.

香蕉视频苹果下载Mr. Lavrov told India Today that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s expansion is what led to Russia’s offensive against Ukraine.

"The real reason is the complacency of most countries in the world after the end of World War II, when our Western colleagues led by the United States declared themselves the winners, and in violation of their promises to the Soviet and Russian leadership, [they] started moving NATO eastward.”
