Report: U.S. to Vastly Expand Weapons Shipments to Ukraine

HeadlineApr 13, 2022

The Washington Post is reporting the Biden administration is considering vastly expanding the type of weapons the U.S. is sending to Ukraine. A proposed military aid package worth $750 million includes money for armored Humvees, Mi-17 helicopters, howitzer cannons and more drones, all this in addition to the $1.7 billion in military aid already provided to Ukraine by the Biden administration since the Russian invasion. This comes as the Pentagon is holding a meeting with the top eight U.S. weapons manufacturers to discuss ways to keep arming Ukraine if the war goes on for years.
