The USA has announced the next package of military assistance to aid Ukraine, Secretary of State Antony Blinken has said in a statement.
"This package contains important capabilities to help Ukraine on the battlefield. It includes AIM-9M missiles for air defence, munitions for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems, 155mm and 105mm artillery ammunition, mine-clearing equipment, Javelin and other anti-armor systems and rockets, over 3 million rounds of small arms ammunition, ambulances, demolition munitions for obstacle clearing, as well as spare parts, services, training, and transportation," he said.
This package is valued at $250 million.
Blinken added: "Every day, Russia continues to wage a brutal war of conquest that has killed many of Ukraine’s civilians and displaced millions of its people. Their attacks on Ukraine's ports and grain infrastructure have caused price volatility in food and grain markets and worsened hunger and global food insecurity around the world."
