The Biden administration is likely to announce a fresh military aid package for Ukraine in “coming days,” the White House said
“I do think you’ll see another one here in coming days,” White House national security spokesperson John Kirby told reporters says.
The weapons are being transferred under what is known as drawdown authority, which allows the president to send excess weapons in US stocks to another country.
The package comes as Russia faces an increasing number of suspected attacks behind the frontlines that have not been definitively attributed, including one the Russian city of Belgorod that reportedly struck an ammunition storage facility.
The incident is the latest after Russian military sites in occupied Crimea were targeted with open-source satellite imagery appearing to depict widespread losses, including of vital combat aircraft.
