US Announces $325 Million Arms Package for Ukraine

The package includes artillery ammunition and anti-tank weapons

The Pentagon on Wednesday announced a new $325 million arms package for Ukraine that includes ammunition for the HIMARS rocket systems and anti-tank weapons.

The weapons are being provided to Ukraine through the Presidential Drawdown Authority, which allows President Biden to send arms to Kyiv directly from Pentagon stockpiles.

The funds are being drawn from the $45 billion aid bill Congress passed in December, which is expected to be exhausted by the summer. To date, the US has authorized about $113 billion in spending on the war.

According to the Pentagon, the new package includes the following:

  • Additional ammunition for HIMARS
  • 155mm and 105mm artillery rounds
  • Tube-Launched, Optically-Tracked, Wire-Guided (TOW) missiles
  • AT-4 anti-armor weapon systems
  • Anti-tank mines
  • Demolition munitions for obstacle clearing
  • Over 9 million rounds of small arms ammunition
  • Four logistics support vehicles
  • Precision aerial munitions
  • Testing and diagnostic equipment to support vehicle maintenance and repair
  • Port and harbor security equipment
  • Spare parts and other field equipment

The Pentagon also released a fact sheet on Wednesday that details the enormous amount of military aid the US has provided Ukraine. It says the Biden administration has committed more than $36.1 billion in military equipment for Kyiv, including $35.4 billion that has been pledged since Russia invaded on February 24, 2022.
