US to send additional military aid for Ukraine

The United States announced details Sunday of $375 million in additional military aid for Ukraine, including ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) and Javelin antitank systems.

The latest package includes funding for additional ammunition for artillery systems, armored bridging systems, trucks to transport heavy equipment and antitank systems.

“It includes additional ammunition for U.S.-provided HIMARS, artillery rounds, anti-armor capabilities, and critical enablers valued at up to $375 million that Ukraine is using on the battlefield to push back against Russia’s unprovoked war of aggression,” the news release says.
