US sending additional $400 million in Ukraine military aid, Blinken announces
(Worthy News) – Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced a new $400 million military aid package to Ukraine on Wednesday.
The package will include “additional arms, munitions, and air defense equipment from U.S. Department of Defense inventories,” Blinken said in a statement, which didn’t provide many specifics on the weapons heading to Ukraine. It is the 26th time the administration is using the presidential drawdown authority, which allows the United States to take from its stockpiles and provide those weapons to Ukraine.
“The United States will continue to stand with more than 40 allies and partners in support of the people of Ukraine as they defend their freedom and independence with extraordinary courage and boundless determination,” the secretary continued.“The artillery ammunition, precision fires, air defense missiles, and tactical vehicles that we are providing will best serve Ukraine on the battlefield.” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
