U.S. announces new weapons aid for Ukraine as Congress is stalled on more funding


The U.S. is sending a $175 million package of military aid to Ukraine, the Pentagon and State Department announced on Wednesday, Paralel.Az reports citing Associated Press.

"Capabilities provided in today’s package include air defense munitions, additional ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rockets Systems, artillery ammunition, High-speed Anti-Radiation Missiles, anti-armor missiles, small arms ammunition, demolitions munitions for obstacle clearing, equipment to protect critical national infrastructure, and spare parts, ancillary equipment, services, training, and transportation," says the statement.

In a statement, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that unless Congress approves the supplemental funding, “this will be one of the last security assistance packages we can provide to Ukraine.”
