US Military Boosts Aid for Ukraine

Department of State

This week, as Russia’s unconscionable war of aggression against Ukraine continues at greathuman cost, we are again reminded of the boundless courage and steadfast resolve of theUkrainian people, and the strong support for Ukraine across the international community.

Today, pursuant to a delegation of authority from President Biden, I am authorizing our 34thdrawdown of U.S. arms and equipment for Ukraine valued at $350 million. This military assistance package includes more ammunition for U.S.-provided HIMARS and howitzers that Ukraine is usingto defend itself, as well as ammunition for Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles, HARM missiles, anti-tank weapons, riverine boats, and other equipment.

We applaud the more than 50 countries that have come together to provide support for Ukraine asit defends its sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Russia alone could end its war today. Until Russia does we will stand united with Ukraine for as long as it takes.
