White House announces new military aid package for Ukraine

The White House on Wednesday announced the latest in a series of aid packages for Ukraine that includes up to $300 million (€279 million) worth of air defence systems, ammunition and other defence equipment.

The security assistance package represents the 39th drawdown of equipment from the US Department of Defense inventories, the Pentagon said. The package includes Patriot air defence batteries, Stinger anti-aircraft systems, tank ammunition and a list of other equipment, according to the Pentagon.

In total, the US has committed more than $38.3 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since the beginning of the Biden administration, including more than $37.6 billion since Russia’s invasion in February 2022.
