Pentagon announces $1.1 billion in aid to Ukrainian Army

The United States will provide 18 HIMARS, 150 Armored High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs), 150 Tactical Vehicles to tow weapons, 40 trucks and 80 trailers to transport heavy equipment, 2 radars for Unmanned Aerial Systems, 20 multi-mission radars, Counter-Unmanned Aerial Systems and other.

The package is aimed at helping Ukraine secure its longer-term defense needs under the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative, which funds the purchase of weapons and equipment. According to the RadioLiberty, “this means it could take a year or more for Ukraine to get the systems.”
