On Wednesday, the White House announced the allocation of another $325 million in military aid to Ukraine by decree of US President Joe Biden.
The new U.S. aid package includes additional ammunition for HIMARS systems, 155-mm and 105-mm artillery shells, TOW anti-tank guided missiles, AT-4 anti-tank systems, anti-tank mines, and explosive ordnance to remove obstacles.
In addition, the aid includes more than nine million rounds of small arms ammunition, four logistics vehicles, precision aviation munitions, vehicle maintenance and repair diagnostic equipment, port and harbor security equipment, spare parts, and other field equipment.
The military assistance package is part of the Presidential Arms Reduction Initiative, which allows the US leader to transfer weapons from US stockpiles in an emergency.
"The United States will continue to work with its allies and partners to provide Ukraine with the capabilities to meet its immediate battlefield needs and long-term security assistance requirements," the Pentagon emphasizes.
