US to send 450 million dollars in security aid to Ukraine in latest package

The United States will provide Ukraine with an additional $450 million in security aid, including more long-range rocket systems, U.S. officials said Thursday.

Moscow’s forces are advancing east of Ukraine in an attempt to capture the industrial heartland known as the Donbass, where Ukraine fears some of its troops could be encircled in Russia’s Pincer initiative.

The Pentagon said in a statement that the package would cost up to $450 million and include four additional High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS), 18 coastal and riverine patrol boats and thousands of pieces of ammunition.

Since Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24, President Joe Biden’s administration has provided $6.1 billion in security aid to Ukraine.




John Kirby, the National Security Council coordinator for strategic communications, said Washington was working closely with Kiev to identify which types of weapons would best meet their needs in each package.

“The reason we do it this way is so we can keep it relevant to what’s happening on the battlefield,” Kirby told reporters at a White House briefing.

The latest package comes on the heels of Biden’s announcement last week of $1 billion in weapons for Ukraine that includes anti-ship rocket systems, artillery rockets, howitzers and ammunition.

In recent weeks, the fighting has entered a brutal attritional phase, with Russian forces concentrating overwhelming artillery fire on the Donbass, which Moscow claims on behalf of the separatists.

Ukraine says the HIMARS systems are needed to better match the range of Russian rocket systems it says have been used extensively to hit Ukrainian positions in the Donbas.

Washington said it had received assurances from Kiev that those long-range weapons would not be used to invade Russian territory amid fears of an escalation in the conflict.

U.S. officials say that while HIMARS is important for Ukrainian forces, no single weapon system alone can change the war.




Moscow has warned that it will strike Ukrainian targets that it “has not yet hit” if the West supplies Ukraine with long-range missiles for use in high-precision mobile rocket systems.
