Washington – The United States is doubling its efforts in rendering military support for Ukraine to reinforce its counter-offensive against Russian forces.
The military package of $275 includes ammunition and more High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) launchers, it is reported by the Associated Press.
White House national security spokesperson John Kirby in a CNN interview confirms that a new tranche of weaponry for Ukraine would be announced “very, very soon.”
Since the Feb. 24 Russian invasion of neighboring Ukraine, the United States has sent around $17.6 billion worth of security assistance to Kyiv.
This plan of military package is coming after it emerged that the United States is already considering sending older HAWK air defense equipment from storage to Ukraine to help it defend against Russian drone and cruise missile attacks, U.S. officials say.
