The United States of America announced a new aid package to Ukraine. Washington said it provided Kyiv with $175 million worth of additional military equipment, including ammunition and air defense systems, FREEDOM reports.

A new package of US military assistance to Ukraine was allocated from the Pentagon’s reserves. This means that the equipment will get to the front in the very near future. The new tranche includes missiles for HIMARS launchers, Javelin anti-tank systems, Abrams tanks and depleted uranium projectiles for them, ammunition, ammunition and communications systems.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the Kremlin could end this war at any time by withdrawing its troops from Ukraine. And until that happens, the United States, allies and partners will be with Ukraine for as long as it takes.

“Russia launched a new wave of airstrikes on the inhabitants of Ukraine, killing at least 16 people and injuring dozens of others. These inhumane attacks by the Russian Federation highlight the importance of continuing to support the people of Ukraine, who are defending their territory against unwarranted aggressive actions by Russia. This message was conveyed by Secretary Blinken, as you all know, during his trip to Ukraine. And the United States has announced a new security assistance package that includes more munitions for artillery and HIMARS systems, Javelin systems and anti-armor systems. There will also be ammunition for the Abrams tanks, which will soon arrive in Ukraine, as well as an air defense system to protect against airstrikes like those Ukrainians are facing today,” said Jean-Pierre.

The aid provided by the United States comes from funds previously approved by Congress. President Joe Biden has requested another $24 billion in military and humanitarian support for Ukraine in the final months of 2023. But it is not yet clear how much of that amount will be approved. Consideration of Biden’s request for funding will be a test of the willingness of the United States to continue to support Ukraine in its fight against Russian occupiers.

“Over the past few months, the Senate allocation process has been a shining example of how to proceed in Washington. At this time, people are divided. The Senate is with a fairly close division of forces. However, we can sum up the Senate’s government funding work in one word: bipartisan work,” said Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Senator Schumer also noted that the United States must continue to support “our friends in Ukraine even more than before,” while the counteroffensive of the Ukrainian army is in full swing.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell called for continued investment in the United States military industrial base to support US partners in today’s struggles and help contain tomorrow’s threats.

“The Senate’s top priority should be to keep the American people safe. This month, we will have the opportunity to do so with additional funding for urgent national security and disaster relief needs,” McConnell said during a press briefing.

National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan told reporters at the White House that the administration is working closely with the Senate and House of Representatives on the additional aid package.
