Biden arrived to Kiev on Monday and held talks with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. The vice president is also expected to address the Rada on Tuesday.

Earlier in the day, the US vice president announced a new round of financial assistance to Kiev amounting to $190 million.

The United States has been assisting Ukraine with economic and military aid following the 2014 political crisis and Crimea’s referendum to reunite with Russia.

Washington has already provided Kiev with more than $266 million in military equipment and training, while the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has pledged to give Kiev some $17 billion in loans over a two-year period.
