The president didn't elaborate on the level of military assistance the U.S. might offer Ukraine in the face of an invasion, but it came as his administration worked with NATO allies to bolster Ukraine's forces — and quickly.

Hundreds of others want to continue the fight and the number of those who have managed to flee is not known. The balance sheet now amounts to 166 deaths: 114 Jihadists, 45 Kurdish fighters and 7 civilians, according to the count of the OSDH.
