Ukraine receives $400 million from Biden administration
A $400 million aid package was announced by the Biden administration on July 8 to support Ukraine's fight against Russia.
It is the 15th such authorization for Ukraine since August 2021 under the Biden administration. The funds come from a drawdown of equipment from the Pentagon's inventories.
The latest security aid will be “especially important and effective in assisting Ukraine and coping with the Russian artillery battle” in Ukraine’s Donbas region, a senior defense official told reporters on July 8.
“As the United States surged HIMARS systems and the missiles for those systems, that Ukraine has now been successfully striking Russian locations in Ukraine, deeper behind the front lines, and disrupting Russia’s ability to conduct that artillery operation,” he added.
