US to send new weapons to Ukraine worth $550 million
The United States announced a new tranche of weapons for Ukraine’s Armed Forces fighting Russia, including ammunition for increasingly important rocket launchers and artillery guns.
The $550m package will “include more ammunition for the high mobility advanced rocket systems otherwise known as Himars, as well as ammunition” for artillery, national security council spokesman John Kirby told reporters.
The assistance includes 75,000 rounds of 155mm artillery ammunition, a statement from the Pentagon said.
