The United States is expected to announce a new package of military assistance for Ukraine today, December 12, with a potential allocation of $200 million, as reports Voice of America in Ukrainian.

"US may declare an additional $200 million in military aid for Ukraine," the report stated.

Journalist Karla Beb clarified that this announcement could take place today, citing a US official as the source.

Background on U.S. aid

The United States is running out of funds allocated for financing military assistance to Ukraine. Consequently, President Joe Biden has requested over $100 billion from Congress, including over $60 billion for Ukraine.

Currently, there are discrepancies in Congress regarding this package, as Republicans insist on adding proposals to enhance border security.

Yesterday, the Coordinator of the US National Security Council at the White House, John Kirby, mentioned that the United States would likely announce another package of military assistance to Ukraine by the end of December.

Against this backdrop, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has arrived in the United States.

More details about the trip can be found in the material from RBC-Ukraine.
