The White House has approved a $400 million security package for Ukraine amid an ongoing war with Russia. The package will reportedly include four High Mobility Rocket Systems. Each rocket system will reportedly have the ability to hit faraway targets with greater accuracy.
Additionally, the security package will include three tactical vehicles to recover equipment, demolition munitions, counter-battery systems, 155 mm artillery ammunition and other equipment.
“It will be more effective due to the precision, so it’s a further evolution in our support for Ukraine in this battle in the Donbas,” a senior defense official said about equipment being sent to Ukraine.
This is the Biden Administration’s fifteenth drawdown of equipment from DoD inventories for Ukraine over the latest 11 months. Thus far, the United States has committed $2.2 billion of security assistance to Ukraine in the last three weeks. Overall, the United States has committed approximately $8 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since the beginning of the Biden Administration.
“The United States continues to work with its Allies and partners to provide Ukraine with capabilities to meet its evolving battlefield requirements,” the Biden Administration stated.
