The Biden administration ‘s next $1 billion security aid package for Ukraine, one of the largest so far, will include long-range weapons ammunition and armored medical transport vehicles.

This is reported by Reuters, citing three sources.

The package is expected to be announced as early as Monday and will add about $8.8 billion in aid the United States provided to Ukraine following Russia’s February 24 invasion.play video

Officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that President Joe Biden has yet to sign the next weapons package. They warned that the weapons packages could change in value and content before they were signed.

However, if signed in its current form, it would be valued at $1 billion and would include HIMARS munitions, NASAMS surface-to-air missile munitions, and up to 50 M113 armored medical vehicles.

Recall that President Zelensky thanked Biden for providing military assistance to Ukraine in the amount of 550 million.

  1. Maybe the snail administration will finally give Ukraine what it really needs. If it had done so months ago already, who knows how much closer we’d be to end this horrible war. Piecemeal and languid aid only costs human lives and adds to destruction of the country.
