Deja Vu: Washington Approves $625M Additional Military Aid for Ukraine

It’s hard to keep up with exactly how much aid the US sends Ukraine to aid their resistance to the brutal Russian invasion.

That’s because Washington seems to approve a new staggeringly huge aid package every few days.

The newest one, announced Tuesday, would include $625 million in additional military aid, including High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (known as HIMARS), 200 mine-resistant vehicles, hundreds of thousands of rounds of artillery and mortar ammunition, and more.

US President Joe Biden detailed the package in a phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Tuesday, even as Russia formally voted to approve the annexation of four regions in Ukraine.

The White House explained in a statement, “President Biden also affirmed the continued readiness of the United States to impose severe costs on any individual, entity, or country that provides support to Russia’s purported annexation.”
