The U.S. is again dipping into its own stock of military hardware, including 21,000 155mm artillery rounds to 100 Humvees, to support Ukraine in its fight against a Russian invasion that began in February.
On Thursday, the Pentagon announced a $400 million security assistance package for Kyiv, Defense Department officials told reporters.
Topping the list are missiles for the HAWK air defense systems; four Avenger air defense systems and Stinger missiles. Also being sent are additional ammo for the High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) that have been considered a game-changer on the battlefield.
The authorization announced Thursday is the Biden administration’s 25th drawdown of equipment from Defense Department inventories since August 2021.
“With Russia’s unrelenting and brutal air attacks on Ukrainian civilian and critical infrastructure, additional air defense capabilities are critical,” Sabrina Singh, a Defense Department spokeswoman, told reporters at the Pentagon.
