The United States is preparing a military aid package for Ukraine worth nearly $300 million, set to be allocated tomorrow, according to AP News.

"The United States is expected to announce an additional $275 million in military aid for Ukraine on Friday," writes the agency.

This will be the fourth tranche of military aid to Ukraine since Congress passed the foreign aid bill for Ukraine late last month.

According to the agency, the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) need this aid to deter the Russian offensive in the Kharkiv region.

American officials informed journalists that the package would include High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) and 155mm and 105mm artillery shells.

Aid from the USA

Ukraine began receiving military aid from the United States recently after months of Congress being unable to vote on the aid bill for Kyiv.

Meanwhile, the Institute for the Study of War believes that Russia was forced to start a renewed offensive in Ukraine earlier than planned due to the resumption of aid from the USA.
