The first batch of military aid for the Armed Forces of Ukraine
The cargo includes about 91,000 kg of lethal weapons. The United States intends to continue to provide such assistance to the Armed Forces.
The first of several batches of a $200 million security package for the Ukrainian Armed Forces, which was accepted by President Biden in December, arrived at Kiev’s Boryspil airport on the morning of January 22.
The cargo includes about 91 thousand kilograms of lethal weapons, including ammunition for Ukrainian soldiers on the front line.
“This assistance … demonstrates the strong commitment of the United States to Ukraine’s sovereign right to self-defense,” the embassy added.
The U.S. has provided more than $650 million worth of security to Ukraine last year, including this aid package, and more than $2.7 billion in security overall since 2014.
The United States intends to continue to provide such assistance to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, supporting them in defending the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine from Russian aggression.
Recall, on the eve of Kiev visited the head of the State Department Anthony Blinken, who announced the allocation of Ukraine an additional $300 million in aid.
