The Pentagon has confirmed new assistance for Ukraine, which will amount to approximately $1.1 billion. It is noted that this will be a “multi-year investment” in critical capabilities for creating a lasting power of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

A complete list of what our country will receive has already appeared on the Pentagon website.

The announced assistance will start providing Ukraine with priority opportunities in the medium and long term. The Pentagon stressed that this package will help us defend the country from Russian aggression.

What will Ukraine get:

  • 18 High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) and associated ammunition;

In total, the United States has now committed approximately $16.9 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since January 2021. Since 2014, the United States has committed approximately $19 billion in security assistance to Ukraine more than $16.2 billion since the beginning of Russia’s unprovoked and brutal invasion on February 24.

The US Department of Defense continues to work with Ukraine to meet both its immediate and long-term needs for security assistance.

“Through both PDA and USAI, DoD continues to work with Ukraine to meet both its immediate and longer-term security assistance needs. Together with our Allies and partners, our unified efforts will help Ukraine continue to be successful today while building the enduring strength of Ukraine’s forces to ensure the continued freedom and independence of the Ukrainian people.”
