"And it's designed to want - for one reason, and that's to try to bring the Ukrainian people to their knees, because he can't bring the Ukrainian armed forces to its knees," he said.

"And so, what we're doing is a couple of things, Kirby said.

"First of all, we're still going to continue to provide the Ukrainian armed forces with the tools, weapons, the capabilities, the training that they need so that they can be successful on the battlefield. And they have been very successful in just the last few weeks."
