The Defense Department on Sunday announced a $375 million aid package for Ukraine.
The package, being funded via presidential “drawdown” authority that will directly transfer weapons from U.S. stocks includes:
- Additional ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS);
- 155mm and 105mm artillery rounds;
- Tube-Launched, Optically-Tracked, Wire-Guided (TOW) missiles;
- Javelin and AT-4 anti-armor systems;
- Laser-guided rocket system munitions;
- Demolition munitions;
- Armored bridging systems;
- Armored medical treatment vehicles;
- Trucks and trailers to transport heavy equipment;
- Logistics support equipment;
- Thermal imagery systems;
- Spare parts and other field equipment.
The action is the 38th drawdown from U.S. inventories being sent to Ukraine since August 2021.
Last week, the Pentagon announced that, due to a significant accounting error, it had overvalued $3 billion more for Ukraine than it originally projected.
