US Allocates $150 Million Military Aid Package to Ukraine


The White House has announced the allocation of a new $150 million military aid package to Ukraine.

During a briefing, White House spokesperson Karine Jean-Pierre stated, "The Biden administration is announcing a substantial new package of military assistance for Ukraine as the United States continues to support Ukraine in its fight against Russian aggression."

According to Jean-Pierre, this is the seventh military aid package authorized by Biden since Congress passed the assistance law for Ukraine in April.

"It includes missiles for air defense systems, ammunition for HIMARS, artillery shells, and other critical capabilities drawn from US Army stocks," the spokesperson said.

The full list of the aid package includes:

  1. Missiles for HAWK air defense systems;

  2. Ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS);

  3. 155mm and 105mm artillery rounds;

  4. 81mm mortar rounds;

  5. Tube-Launched, Optically-Tracked, Wire-Guided (TOW) missiles;

  6. Javelin and AT-4 anti-armor systems;

  7. Small arms ammunition and grenades;

  8. Demolitions equipment and munitions;

  9. Tactical vehicles to tow and haul equipment;

  10. Tactical air navigation systems and aircraft support equipment; and,

  11. Spare parts, maintenance, and other field and ancillary equipment.

The package also includes funding that will be used by the Ministry of Defense to purchase interceptors to help Ukraine protect soldiers on the front lines and cities from Russian aerial attacks.

Jean-Pierre noted that US assistance has been crucial in recent months, and thanks to the bravery of Ukrainian soldiers and the equipment provided by the United States and its partners, "it is clear that the Russian offensive around Kharkiv was a mistake."

The previous military aid package to Ukraine, totaling $225 million, was announced on June 7.
