A military aid to Ukraine worth 800

This week, the United States is to approve a new $ 800 million military aid package for Ukraine, less than a week after a previous announcement of identical measures, several American publications reported, writes AFP, quoted by Agerpres.

Thus, the details of this new package are still being developed, according to CNN, which cites three high-ranking officials of the Biden administration.

In this context, NBC News announced that this new tranche is expected to include more artillery and tens of thousands of shells for Kyiv in its war against Russia, as Ukraine faces a series of Russian blows in the east of the country.

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Tuesday afternoon that “President Biden and the leaders of this morning’s call discussed the provision of additional ammunition and security assistance for Ukraine.”

On April 13, Joe Biden announced another $ 800 million US military aid to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, including heavy equipment such as armored vehicles, artillery and helicopters.

And on Monday, the Pentagon reported that the first shipments of this military aid tranche had already arrived at Ukraine’s borders to be handed over to the Ukrainian army.

In the context of aid, the United States has provided Ukraine with most of Kyiv’s international military aid in the fall. The total value of military assistance, before the expected announcement of this new tranche, reached about 3.2 billion dollars.
