US to give Ukraine $300M more in military gear

The U.S. Department of Defense says it is providing an additional $ 300 million in military equipment to Ukrainian forces defending the country from Russian troops.

Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said Friday afternoon that the new package’s equipment includes laser-guided rocket systems, unmanned aerial vehicles, armored vehicles, night-vision devices and ammunition. It also includes medical supplies, field equipment and spare parts.

Kirby said the new package “marks the beginning of a procurement process to provide new capabilities” to Ukraine, rather than the delivery of equipment from US military depots.

The U.S. has provided more than $ 1.6 billion in security aid since the Russian invasion, Kirby said.
