U.S. authorizes largest-yet military package to Ukraine

The United States has authorized its largest delivery yet of military aid to Ukraine, the Pentagon announced Monday — a $1 billion package of ammunition, weapons and equipment.

The package specifically includes ammunition for artillery rocket systems, munitions for surface-to-air missile systems, explosives, armored medical vehicles and medical supplies, according to a press release from Acting Pentagon Press Secretary Todd Breasseale.

“To meet Ukraine’s evolving battlefield requirements, the United States will continue to work with its Allies and partners to provide Ukraine with key capabilities,” Breasseale wrote.
