The US Department of Defense (DoD) confirmed additional security assistance worth over $725 million to equip the Ukrainian armed forces with key defense capabilities.

The latest aid package is the 23rd presidential withdrawal of equipment from the Department of Defense stockpile for the war-torn nation since August 2021.

Help includes more ammo for Artillery missile systems of high mobility (HIMARS), 23,000 155 mm artillery rounds, 500 155 mm precision-guided artillery rounds, 5,000 155 mm Remote Anti-Armor Mine (RAAM) rounds, and 5,000 anti-armor weapons.

Over 200 high-mobility multi-purpose wheeled vehicles (HMMWVs), fast anti-radiation missiles, small arms, and nearly 2,000,000 rounds of small arms ammunition, along with medical supplies, are also part of the package.

In a statement, the Defense Department said the US and its allies will continue to provide the necessary capabilities to help Ukraine protect its sovereignty.

Since the start of the Russian invasion, the US has pledged nearly $17.6 billion in security aid to Ukraine.

The latest package follows Meeting of the contact group for the defense of Ukraine held recently in Belgium.
