Biden announces another major military aid package for Ukraine: report


The Biden administration announced $800 million in additional military aid to Ukraine last week.


US President Joe Biden is expected to announce another military aid package for Ukraine in the coming days of roughly the same size as the $800 million package announced last week, multiple sources familiar with the matter said Tuesday.

A US official said, on condition of anonymity, that a new package was expected to be about the same size as the previous package, but details were still being worked out.

The latest package was first reported by NBC News.

The Biden administration last week announced $800 million in additional aid, including artillery systems, artillery shells, armored personnel carriers and unmanned coastal defense boats, extending the scope of equipment sent to Kiev to include new types of heavy equipment.

If this week’s aid package is as big as expected, it would bring total US military aid to Ukraine since Russia in February to more than $3 billion.
