Pentagon spokesperson Patrick Ryder responded that the U.S. will continue to supply armaments for air defense systems (ADS), according to his statement.

According to Ryder, within the framework of the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative (USAI), there are several contracted opportunities, including the provision of air defense capabilities.

"There are certain capabilities that were contracted under USAI, which does include some air defense capabilities. We'll also continue to work very closely with allies and partners in terms of identifying Ukraine's needs and then working with them to help facilitate that process," Ryder responded.

When asked if American AD missiles are currently being supplied to Ukraine, Patrick Ryder replied that it involves these and other forms of assistance, which were announced as part of the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative (USAI).

Aid from the U.S. to Ukraine

Earlier, we reported that the U.S. House of Representatives is expecting the Senate to pass a separate bill for international aid, which includes Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan.

The U.S. Senate was supposed to pass a bill on aid to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan along with border security protection. However, the bill was blocked in the Senate vote.

Ukrainian Ambassador to the U.S. Oksana Markarova announced that the Senate has decided to reconsider the aid package for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, but this time without immigration reform and border security.
