U.S. to Give Ukraine Additional $350 Million in Military Aid

The United States is to give an additional $350 million to Ukraine for military aid. Since Ukraine’s conflict with Russia began, the United States has given $32.5 billion in military assistance. “This week, as Russia’s unconscionable war of aggression against Ukraine continues at great human cost, we are again reminded of the boundless courage and steadfast resolve of the Ukrainian people, and the strong support for Ukraine across the international community,” said U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

From The Epoch Times:

The latest military assistance package consists of additional ammunition for HIMARS, howitzers, Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles, high-speed anti-radiation missiles; 81mm and 60mm mortar systems and mortar rounds; AT-4 anti-armor weapon systems; Grenade launchers, small arms, and associated ammunition; demolition munitions and equipment for obstacle clearing; mine clearing equipment; heavy fuel tankers; thermal imagery systems, optics, and laser rangefinders; riverine patrol boats; testing and diagnostic equipment to support vehicle maintenance and repair; and spare parts and other field equipment.


The announcement of the latest U.S. assistance to Ukraine comes as Chinese leader Xi Jinping meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on March 20 and just days after the International Criminal Court announced an arrest warrant for Putin and another Russian official for overseeing the abduction and  “unlawful deportation” of  Ukrainian children.
