U.S. announces additional $600 million in security assistance for Ukraine

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) announced on 15 September an additional $600 million in military aid to meet Ukraine’s critical security and defence needs.

This authorization is the Biden Administration’s twenty-first drawdown of equipment from DoD inventories for Ukraine since August 2021.

Capabilities in this package include:

  • Additional ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS);
  • 36,000 105mm artillery rounds;
  • 1,000 precision-guided 155mm artillery rounds;
  • Four counter-artillery radars;
  • Four trucks and eight trailers to transport heavy equipment;
  • Counter-Unmanned Aerial Systems;
  • Mine clearing equipment;
  • Claymore anti-personnel munitions;
  • Demolition munitions and equipment;
  • Small arms and ammunition;
  • Night vision devices, cold weather gear, and other field equipment.

The U.S. DoD states that in total, the United States has committed approximately $15.8 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since the beginning of the Biden Administration.

Since 2014, the United States has committed approximately $17.9 billion in security assistance to Ukraine and more than $15.1 billion since the beginning of Russia’s unprovoked and brutal invasion on February 24.
