Antony Blinken announced another shipment of assistance for the Ukrainian army, which "will further strengthen Ukraine's ability to defend its territory from Russian offensive actions while continuing its counter-offensive against Russian forces."
We remind you that on May 9, 2022, Joe Biden approved the lend-lease for Ukraine, and within the framework of the Presidential Drawdown Authority, our country's Armed Forces have already received 48 packages of weapons and equipment. This package is the 49th:
- Projectiles for NASAMS;
- Air defence missiles AIM-9M;
- Stinger anti-aircraft systems;
- Shells for HIMARS;
- Ammunition 155 mm/105 mm;
- TOW anti-tank missiles;
- Artillery cartridges — 2 millions;
- Night vision systems, winter clothing for soldiers and other non-military products.
"The United States and the coalition we have built of more than 50 countries will continue to support Ukraine, and we will continue to work with Congress to help Ukraine secure its future—a future in which its people can rebuild and live safely in sustainable, prosperous democracy," Antony Blinken.
Since the start of Russia's full-scale attack on Ukraine, the United States has provided Ukraine with assistance totalling about $44 billion.
