The United States may announce a new $2.6 billion military aid package to Ukraine as early as next week.

Reuters reports that the package will include air surveillance radars, anti-tank missiles, fuel tanks and more.

One of the two parts of the package which is worth $2.1 billion will be coming from the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative (USAI) funding.

Under this Initiative, weapons are ordered directly from industry rather than from U.S. weapons stocks.

The remaining $500 million, mainly consisting of munitions, is expected to come from Presidential Drawdown Authority funds.

It allows the leader of the United States to access current US stocks in an emergency.

According to Reuters, the military aid package will include various munitions, precision aerial munitions, additional rounds for the NASAMS air defense system, as well as bridging equipment and recovery vehicles.

The contents of the package may change over the weekend, the sources say. It is scheduled to be announced on Monday, April 3.

The latest $350 million military aid package was announced on March 20.

In total, since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia, the US has announced military aid to Ukraine in the amount of more than $30 billion.

Earlier, the Ukrainian military, trained on Patriot SAMs in the United States, have returned to Europe.

As previously reported, United States inspectors found no signs of serious violations in using aid provided to Ukraine.
