“I don’t have proof of that specifically,” Mr. Kirby said on Monday afternoon at a press conference.

Some media outlets reported on weekend that the American Brent Renaud, 51, was riddled with bullets in the city of Irpin, from where he was supposedly reporting for The New York Times, even though the newspaper ruled out Mr. Renaud worked for them in these moments.

Concerning Russia´ military situation, Mr. Kirby admitted they are expanding some troops, ruling out the attack on a western Ukraine military base, about 20 kms from the border with Poland, was a “turning point” in the conflict.

Such an attack showed that Moscow is complying with its warning to stop the entry of Western weapons, mainly anti-aircraft and anti-tank missiles the United States and the European Union provide to the Ukrainian government.

However, Mr. Kirby reiterated Washington’s military support for Kyiv and said the United States has “multiple routes” to deliver the aid.

US President Joe Biden on Saturday ordered to use $200 million for weapons and military equipment, including Javelin anti-tank missiles and Stinger anti-aircraft missiles already stocked in Europe and will arrive in Ukraine by land from Poland and Romania.
