US to send another $800M in military aid to Ukraine
U.S. President Joe Biden says his administration will soon provide another $800 million in security assistance for Ukraine to fight Russia’s invasion.
Biden said the new aid would include advanced air defense systems, counter-battery radars, and additional ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems, or HIMARS, that the administration had already sent to Ukraine.
Biden said Thursday [June 30, 2022] that the package would be formally detailed by his administration in the coming days. He spoke at a news conference at the end of the NATO summit in Madrid.
With the latest tranche of assistance, the U.S. had committed about $7 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since late February 2022, when Russia invaded its neighbor.
