U.S. Sending $400-M Worth Of Ammo, Generators To Ukraine

The US is sending another $400 million in ammunition and generators to Ukraine, the White House announced and is getting them from its own stockpiles to speed up the delivery to Kyiv as Russia continues to target Ukraine’s energy sources as winter sets in, Tara Copp reported for the Associated Press (AP).

Including the latest aid, the US has committed more than $19 billion in weapons and other equipment to Ukraine since Russia attacked on Feb. 24.


The new package of aid will be provided through presidential drawdown authority (PDA), which allows the Pentagon to take weapons from its own stock and quickly ship them to Ukraine.



The latest package includes 200 generators, an undisclosed volume of rounds for both the advanced NASAMS air defense systems and the HIMARS artillery systems the US has shipped to Ukraine, 150 heavy machine guns with thermal sights to shoot down drones, 10,000 120mm mortar rounds and another 20 million rounds of small arms ammunition, among other items, the Pentagon said.


Now in its ninth month, the intense firefight in Ukraine has had both sides firing thousands of rounds of munitions a day, from bullets for small arms to truck-sized cruise missiles. In a sign of how intense the ground battle has been, the US to date has provided 104 million rounds of small arms ammunition to Ukraine.

“With Russia’s unrelenting and brutal missile and (drone) attacks on Ukrainian critical energy infrastructure, additional air defense capabilities remain an urgent priority,” the Pentagon said in a statement.


“The additional munitions for NASAMS and heavy machine guns will help Ukraine counter these urgent threats.”
