US auditors have arrived in Kyiv along with consultants from the World Bank and Deloitte to ensure that "aid or arms will not be diverted." Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland said this, according to CNN.
Her comments came after Republican members of Congress expressed a desire for additional oversight efforts when it comes to U.S. support for Ukraine.
The State Department said this week that they were not aware of any U.S. assistance in the Ukrainian government corruption scandal that led to the resignation of the country's deputy defense minister.
The auditor's arrival in Kyiv comes after U.S. President Biden announced Wednesday that he plans to send 31 Abrams tanks to Ukraine, and the Pentagon last week unveiled a $2.5 billion security package for Ukraine that includes Stryker armored personnel carriers and new Bradley combat vehicles for the first time.
