Joe Biden will send Ukraine ANOTHER $2.2 billion in military aid.
For the first time ever, the military aid will include longer-range missiles, according to Reuters.
The United States is readying more than $2 billion worth of military aid for Ukraine that is expected to include longer-range rockets for the first time as well as other munitions and weapons, two U.S. officials briefed on the matter told Reuters on Tuesday.
The weapons aid is expected to be announced as soon as this week, the officials said. It is also expected to include support equipment for Patriot air defense systems, precision guided munitions and Javelin anti-tank weapons, they added.
One of the officials said a portion of the package, expected to be $1.725 billion, would come from a fund known as the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative (USAI), which allows President Joe Biden’s administration to get weapons from industry rather than from existing U.S. weapons stocks.
The USAI funds would go toward the purchase of a new weapon, the Ground Launched Small Diameter Bomb (GLSDB) made by Boeing Co (BA.N), which have a range of 94 miles (150 km). The United States has rebuffed Ukraine’s requests for the 185-mile (297-km) range ATACMS missile.
Last week the Biden regime agreed to send 31 Abrams M1 tanks to Ukraine to fight the Russian military.
This means the US will be forced to send men and women to operate the tanks and perform maintenance. It is the Biden regime’s attempt to escalate the war in Ukraine despite Russia’s threats of nuclear war.
However, Joe Biden on Monday said the US will not be providing the F-16 fighter jets that Ukraine has sought.
President Joe Biden said that the U.S. will not provide the F-16 fighter jets that Ukraine has sought in its battle against Russia, as Kyiv planned to push for Western fourth-generation fighter jets after securing supplies of main battle tanks last week https://t.co/sQv8LvF7ho pic.twitter.com/WsReL5XP1O
