Biden announces $3 bln in military aid for Ukraine

The United States is providing Kyiv nearly $3 billion for weapons and equipment in Washington's "biggest tranche of security assistance to date," US President Joe Biden said on Wednesday, six months after Russia invaded Ukraine.

The approximately $2.98 billion in military aid "will allow Ukraine to acquire air defense systems, artillery systems and munitions, counter-unmanned aerial systems, and radars to ensure it can continue to defend itself over the long term," Biden said in a statement released by the White House.
