According to Reuters, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said today, "This was an expected decision for Putin. It will not change the situation."

Last week, the House of Representatives approved more than $60 billion in aid for Ukraine, which has been pending in Congress for months.

Peskov suggested that most of this aid would remain in the United States and said the new support would not change the situation on the front lines, where Russia has the upper hand.

"US arms supplies to Ukraine will lead to more losses for Ukraine," the Kremlin spokesman added.

Regarding the US support for the seizure of frozen Russian assets in the European Union (EU), Peskov said, "This is a dangerous precedent. Such actions are illegal," Peskov said.
