“Today, National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, Secretary of State Tony Blinken and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley spoke together with their Ukrainian counterparts about the enduring US support to Ukraine as the Ukrainian people continue to stand up to Russian aggression, and to inform them about a new $550 million security assistance package that the Biden administration will authorize today,” Kirby said at a press briefing.
The Pentagon has announced a new security agreement that includes 75,000 rounds of artillery ammunition and an undisclosed amount of HIMARS.
This authorization, the release added, is the Trump administration's 17th drawdown of equipment from Pentagon inventories for Ukraine. The US has committed $8.8 billion in security assistance to Kiev since the beginning of Trump's tenure.
