The U.S. is preparing a new package of military assistance to Ukraine worth $275 million. This was reported by Reuters on Friday, December 9, citing sources.
It is noted that the equipment that Ukraine will receive will help to strengthen air defense and protect against enemy drones. At the same time, the publication’s sources did not say what kind of equipment was in question.
The new package will be announced on Friday, December 9. It is noted that the Pentagon will also include missiles for launchers of high-mobility artillery rocket system HIMARS, 155-mm ammunition, military vehicles Humvee and generators in the list of weapons.
However, a representative of the US National Security Council declined to comment on the new aid package, since its nomenclature and scope will be known only after US President Joe Biden signs the relevant document.
The media also reported that the USA was stepping up the purchase of ammunition for the Armed Forces of Ukraine: the Pentagon has placed two large orders.
