Additional US $450 Mln Military Assistance Package

On June 23, John Kirby at a briefing for journalists announced the provision of another presidential aid package for Ukraine

Kirby spoke with Joe Biden last week, who confirmed that the US will support supplying Ukraine's defenses and supporting the fight to restore territorial integrity and integrity.
"United States announced another additional $450 million worth of security assistance to Ukraine as a part of our commitment to help Ukraine defend its democracy and the face of unprovoked Russian aggression. This package contains weapons and equipment including new high mobility artillery rocket systems, tens of thousands of additional rounds of ammunition, artillery systems that have already been provided as well in petrol boards to help Ukraine defend its coast and its waterways," John Kirby.

A Pentagon spokesman noted that this is the thirteenth presidential drawdown package. As of February 24, the United States transferred military aid to Ukraine totaling $6.1 billion.

We remind you that today Ukraine received the first batch of HIMARS from the United States.
