On Monday, the United States reportedly unveiled a $200 million security aid package for Ukraine, giving Kyiv more ammunition and combat vehicles to deploy in the country’s conflict with Russia.
According to the most recent package, U.S. security support to Ukraine has totaled around $43 billion since Russia invaded in February 2022, indicating Ukrainian troops’ remaining funding is quickly running out.
In the middle of a significant counteroffensive operation, the Biden administration disclosed the crucial aid for Ukraine.
More ammunition is included in the package for cutting-edge weaponry systems wanted by Ukraine, including as Patriot missile defense systems and High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS).
Along with mine-clearing tools, 155mm and 105mm artillery rounds, and more than 12 million rounds of small arms ammunition, grenades will also be supplied.
37 tactical vehicles are also included in the security help to tow and transport equipment.
Since the beginning of the conflict, Congress has approved over $47 billion in direct security funding for Ukraine, with the most recent aid package being approved in December.
Last week, the White House requested an extra $40 billion in security aid from Congress, including around $13 billion for necessary defense spending.
