US announces $175M military assistance package to Ukraine

The United States Department of State announced on Wednesday a new $175 million package of arms and equipment for Ukraine, "using the limited resources that remain available to help" that country.

According to a statement attributed to Secretary of State Antony Blinken, the capabilities included in the package comprise air defense ammunition, additional ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems, High-Speed Anti-Radiation Missiles, anti-armor missiles, small arms, and demolition ammunition, among others.

"Until Russia ends this war by stopping its brutal attacks and withdrawing its forces from Ukraine, it is critical for the United States to continue to lead the coalition we have built of more than 50 countries standing strongly with Ukraine," the statement said.
