Ukraine has had successes opening up Black Sea shipping lanes – U.S. official

Russia has failed in its efforts to reduce Ukrainian grain exports to zero and Kyiv’s military successes in the Black Sea have allowed to open up shipping lanes, a senior State Department official said on Thursday.

The Biden administration was working through a request to Congress for more funding for Ukraine and believes there are strong majorities in support of the funding, but Ukraine would “have a severe problem” without the money, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to brief reporters on U.S. policy.
