U.S. to send four more long-range rocket launchers to Ukraine in new aid package

The White House will send four additional rocket launchers to Ukraine, as part of a new USD 450 million package of military assistance, the Department of Defense announced.

“The United States continues to work with its Allies and partners to provide Ukraine with capabilities to meet its evolving battlefield requirements”, - acting Pentagon press secretary Todd Breasseale said in a news release.

In addition to the rocket launchers, the aid package also includes weapons and equipment such as rounds of ammunition, tactical vehicles, machine guns and patrol boats.

National Security Council coordinator John Kirby said at Thursday’s White House press briefing that the new aid package would bring the United States’ total security assistance to Ukraine to about USD 6.1 billion since February 24.
