The United States expects to announce a new military aid package for Ukraine tomorrow that will for the first time include Bradley Fighting Vehicles, according to chief Pentagon spokesman Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder.

Ryder, who declined to provide details ahead of the formal announcement, said the Bradleys, made by BAE Systems, will provide Ukraine “a level of firepower and armor that will bring advantages on the battlefield.”

Additionally, he said, the package will include training and maintenance assistance.
