The United States has announced military aid worth one billion dollars to Ukraine on Monday.
Under the newly announced aid, rockets, ammunition and other weapons will be supplied to Ukrainian forces directly from the Defense Ministry’s weapons depot.
The announcement of US aid comes after reports that Russia was moving troops and weapons to the southern coastal city to prevent a counterattack from Ukraine.
The announced aid includes additional rockets for the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HAMARS), thousands of artillery shells, mortar systems and other weapons.
According to military commanders and other US officials, the Hemaris and artillery systems have played an important role in preventing Russia’s occupation of Ukraine.
Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine at the end of February this year, the United States has announced a total of nine billion dollars worth of military aid to Ukraine.
US Undersecretary for Defense Policy Colin Cahill, while announcing military aid to Ukraine, said that our focus at every stage of the conflict has been to ensure that Ukraine has everything it needs to meet the changing conditions of the battlefield. Required.
So far, the largest package announced by the United States for Ukraine was a billion dollar package that was announced on June 15. But it was limited to the $350 million Presidential Drawdown Authority and the $650 million Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative.
But under the package announced Monday, the U.S. will supply Ukraine with weapons systems and other weapons directly from Defense Ministry warehouses.
