The administration of US President Joe Biden will allocate another $ 150 million to Ukraine as part of a new military aid package, said Pentagon spokesman John Kirby. This was reported by RIA Novosti.
According to Kirby, the funds will help “the Ukrainian forces maintain the territorial integrity of their country and improve interaction with NATO.” The military assistance package consists of two anti-artillery radars, unmanned aerial vehicles and secure communications.
A Pentagon spokesman added that the United States will also continue to provide security assistance to Ukraine, including providing the country with lethal weapons.
In April, US State Department spokesman Ned Price said that Washington will continue to defend Ukraine from “Russian aggression”: for this, the authorities intend to continue to provide military assistance to Kiev. He also added that the United States has allocated more than $ 2 billion to Ukraine since 2014 “in security assistance.”
