President Biden announced
Wednesday that the U.S. is sending its largest security package to Ukraine to
date, valued at $3 billion.
Mr. Biden said in a statement:
“The United States of America is committed to supporting the people of
Ukraine as they continue the fight to defend their sovereignty.
“As part of that commitment, I
am proud to announce our biggest tranche of security assistance to date:
approximately $2.98 billion of weapons and equipment to be provided through the
Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative.
“This will allow Ukraine
to acquire air defense systems, artillery systems, and munitions,
counter-unmanned aerial systems, and radars to ensure it can continue to defend
itself over the long term.”
