1 min read

US Defense Secretary Austin Lloyd made the announcement during a briefing after the meeting of the Ukraine Defense Contact Group (known as the Ramstein Format), describing it as the largest U.S. aid package to date.

“I’m happy to announce today additional commitments totaling $6 billion within the framework of the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative [USAI],” said the secretary.

“This will allow us to purchase additional military aid for Ukraine from U.S. defense industry.”

The aid package will include interceptor missiles for Patriot and NASAMS air defense systems, anti-drone technologies, ancillary equipment, “significant amounts” of artillery munitions, air-to-surface weapons, and support services.
