New $800m military aid for Ukraine announced by US president

A new package of $800 million in military aid for Ukraine, was on Thursday announced by the President of the United States of America (USA), Joe Biden.

This, the president said, would help Kyiv in the fight against Russian forces in the Donbas region.
According to the Pentagon, the newest round of US support will include 72 155 mm howitzers, 72 armoured vehicles to tow them, 144,000 rounds of ammunition, and more than 120 “Phoenix Ghost” tactical drones recently developed by the US Air Force specifically to address Ukraine’s needs.

President further stated that the new package was tailored to help Ukraine’s forces meet the emerging Russian offensive in the country’s east, which he said would be a different kind of fight than that in the north around Kyiv, where Ukrainian forces successfully beat Russian forces back in the first six weeks of the war.

“We’re in a critical window now where they’re going to set the stage for the next phase of this war.

“And the United States and our allies and partners are moving as fast as possible to continue to provide Ukraine the weapons their forces need to defend their nation,” the president said.

Biden also announced that Russia-affiliated ships would be banned from US ports and that the US Treasury was putting up a fresh $500 million for Ukraine’s government, so it can pay salaries and pensions and provide services.
