The USA provided $400 million in additional military assistance for Ukraine
On November 10, 2022, the U.S. Department of Defense announced the authorization of a Presidential Drawdown of security assistance valued at up to $400 million to meet Ukraine’s critical security and defense needs.
This authorization is the Biden Administration’s twenty-fifth drawdown of equipment for Ukraine since August 2021.
“With Russia’s unrelenting and brutal air attacks on Ukrainian critical infrastructure, additional air defense capabilities are critical. The HAWK missiles, which will be refurbished using Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative funds, will complement Spain’s recent commitment of HAWK launchers to help Ukraine meet this threat. The Avenger short-range air defense systems will also provide Ukraine with the capability to protect Ukrainian troops and critical infrastructure against Unmanned Aerial Systems and helicopters,” the statement of the U.S. Department of Defense reads.
