The United States says it will send Ukraine two NASAMS surface-to-air missile systems, four counter-artillery radars, and about 150,000 rounds of 155mm artillery ammunition to assist Ukraine in its fight against Russia.
Aljazeera on Saturday reports that the US announced $820 million in new military aid, including counter-artillery radars, to respond to Russia’s heavy reliance on long-range strikes in the war.
The US added that the additional material will come as part of the latest US assistance package for Ukraine.
US President Joe Biden said; “We are going to support Ukraine as long as it takes.
"The US is giving Ukrainians the capacity so that they can continue to resist the Russian aggression.
“And so I don’t know how it’s going to end, but it will not end with a Russian defeat of Ukraine in Ukraine.”
The package will also include more ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS).
The US military support brings its total contribution to the Ukrainian war effort to nearly $7bn since Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine on February 24.
