Plane with US weapons arrives in Kyiv

До України прибув літак з американською зброєю

On the night of January 22, a new consignment of American military aid, 90 tons of weapons and ammunition, arrived at Kyiv's Boryspil airport.

This is the first of several parties to a new $ 200 million aid package approved by President Biden in December, according to the US Embassy in Ukraine.

The donation, which includes close to 200,000 pounds of lethal security assistance, including ammunition for the front line defenders of Ukraine, demonstrates the United States’ strong commitment to Ukraine’s sovereign right to self-defense. With this new authorization, the United States has committed more than $650 million of security assistance to Ukraine in the past year and more than $2.7 billion in total U.S. security assistance to Ukraine since 2014. The United States will continue providing such assistance to support Ukraine’s Armed Forces in their ongoing effort to defend Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity against Russian aggression. As President Biden told President Putin, should Russia further invade Ukraine, the United States will provide additional defensive material to Ukraine above and beyond that already provided.
