[ad_1]

The United States is today announcing an additional package of weapons and equipment for Ukraine to support the brave Ukrainian people as they defend their country and their freedom against Russia’s aggression.

This package provides up to $300 million of arms and equipment under previously directed drawdowns for Ukraine. Capabilities provided in today’s package include Stinger anti-aircraft missiles, additional ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS), artillery shells, anti-tank weapons, demolitions, and small arms ammunition, and spare parts and other ancillary equipment.

The coalition of more than 50 countries we have assembled continues to provide critical support for Ukraine’s forces. We look forward to providing additional U.S. support, if Congress acts on the President’s request. We urge the House to pass the supplemental as soon as possible to allow us to continue sending vital security assistance to Ukraine, replenish the U.S. military’s munition stocks, and invest in our industrial base.
