The United States military is sending Ukraine another $600 million in rockets, radars, and supplies—including cold-weather apparel in advance of the harsh winter months ahead, the Pentagon announced Thursday evening.
More artillery rounds for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems are coming; another 36,000 rounds of 105mm artillery and a thousand precision-guided 155mm artillery rounds are inbound as well. Unspecified counter-drone systems are included, along with claymore mines and mine-clearing equipment. Four counter-artillery radars are included; and so are more night vision devices, small arms, and trucks and trailers to help transport it all.
“In total, the United States has committed approximately $15.8 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since the beginning of the Biden Administration,” the Pentagon said in a statement. And that includes “more than $15.1 billion since the beginning of Russia’s unprovoked and brutal invasion on February 24.”
