President Biden has announced a new military aid package to Ukraine worth $800 million to provide the Ukrainian Armed Forces with more weapons. The new Russian offensive into Donbas requires that the Ukrainian forces be resupplied with proper munitions that would suit the environment in eastern Ukraine, which is why the US has sent the package. This new military aid includes heavy artillery such as 72 155mm howitzers, 144,000 rounds of artillery, and Phoenix Ghost drones.

“In the past two months, we’ve moved weapons and equipment to Ukraine at record speed. We’ve sent thousands of anti-armor and anti-missile, helicopters, drones, grenade launchers, machine guns, rifles, radar systems. More than 50 million rounds of ammunition,” he said.

“The United States alone has provided 10 anti-armor systems for every 1 Russian tank that’s in Ukraine. A 10 to 1 ratio,” he further explained.
