US announces a further $820-million arms package for Ukraine

The US government has promised Ukraine a further arms package worth $820 million for its defence against the Russian invasion.

Washington, 2 July 2022 (dpa/MIA) – The US government has promised Ukraine a further arms package worth $820 million for its defence against the Russian invasion.

The package is to include more ammunition for the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS)-type missile launchers, two NASAMS surface-to-air missile defence systems, artillery ammunition and radar systems for artillery defence, the Pentagon announced on Friday.

Much of the new aid comes not from US stockpiles but from an agreement with the US arms industry.

According to Washington, since the beginning of the war at the end of February, it has promised or delivered weapons and equipment to Ukraine worth almost $7 billion.
