The U.S. has lifted some restrictions on sharing intelligence with Ukraine as it confronts a renewed Russian military assault in the east and south, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines told Congress of the moves this month, according to one of the people. That came after Representative Mike Turner, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, and Senator Marco Rubio, the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, wrote separate letters urging the Biden administration to remove the restrictions.
