The anti putin united remains strong and unchangeable – Ukraine will be provided with key capabilities calibrated to win russia

The United States has been a leading provider of security assistance to Ukraine, both before and after Russia renewed ts invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022. From 2014, when Russia first invaded Ukraine, through August 1, 2022, the United States has provided about $11 billion in security assistance “to help Ukraine preserve its territorial integrity, secure its borders, and improve interoperability with NATO.” Since the start of the 2022 war, the Biden Administration has committed a total of more than $8.1
billion in security assistance to “provide Ukraine the equipment it needs to defend itself.

Ukrainian officials have sought to acquire advanced systems, including fighter aircraft, anti-ship, and additional air defense and anti-missile capabilities. Increasingly, the provision of security assistance to Ukraine includes a greater focus on transitioning the UAF to NATO standard weaponry and training. This takes time but could significantly improve UAF capabilities

To meet Ukraine’s evolving battlefield requirements, the United States will continue to work with its Allies and partners to provide Ukraine with key capabilities calibrated to make a difference. The U.S. Defense Department has authorized a new $1 billion military aid package for Ukraine. Reportedly, the military aid is envisaged to meet Ukraine’s critical security and defense needs. It will be supplied from the stocks of the U.S. Defense Department.

Capabilities of the new package include:

Additional ammunition for HIMARS;

75,000 rounds of ammunition for 155mm artillery;

20 additional 120mm mortar systems and 20,000 rounds of ammunition for them;

Ammunition for NASA’S surface-to-air missile systems;

1,000 Javelin and hundreds of AT4 antitank systems;

50 armored medical vehicles;

Claymore anti-personnel ammunition;

C-4 explosives, explosive ordnance, and explosive equipment;

Medical supplies, including first-aid kits, bandages, monitors, and other equipment.

In previous military aid packages, the United States provided Ukraine with anti-radar missiles.

“In recent military aid packages, we have included a number of anti-radar missiles that can be fired from Ukrainian aircraft and can affect Russian radars and other things,” Colin Kahl said during a press briefing on Monday. Kahl also added that the US and allies have helped Ukraine with spare parts and other parts to get more Ukrainian MiG-29 fighter jets into the sky.
