The United States is preparing its largest arms package for Ukraine yet, with preliminary data suggesting it will amount to $1 billion, Reuters informs.

According to Reuters, the United States is preparing a $1 billion military assistance package for Ukraine, as reported by two American generals.

It is expected that the aid package will include vehicles, Stinger MANPADS ammunition, additional ammunition for HIMARS, 155mm artillery ammunition, TOW and Javelin anti-tank missiles, and other weaponry that can be immediately deployed on the battlefield.

Assistance from the US to Ukraine

Previously, RBC-Ukraine reported that the US had been delaying the vote on a bill that provided for financial and military assistance to Ukraine. However, last week the situation changed, and the House of Representatives already supported the said bill.

The Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Mike Johnson, played a significant role in bringing the bill to a vote. For a long time, he had been blocking the consideration of the bill on assistance to Ukraine. RBC-Ukraine reported on how Speaker Johnson changed his position regarding aid to Ukraine.

Now this bill will be brought to a vote in the Senate, and after its adoption, it will be passed on to US President Joe Biden, who noted that he would sign the bill immediately after its approval by the Senate.

For more details on the history of considering the issue of assistance to Ukraine and the content of the Ukrainian package, read the material by RBC-Ukraine.
