Hi there,

If you think Democracy Now!’s reporting is a critical line of defense against war, climate catastrophe and fascism, please make your donation of $10 or more right now. Today a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, which means it’ll go twice as far to support our independent journalism. When Democracy Now! covers war or gun violence, we’re not brought to you by the weapons manufacturers. When we cover the climate emergency, our reporting isn’t sponsored by the oil, gas, coal or nuclear companies. Democracy Now! is funded by you, and that’s why we’re counting on your donation to keep us going. Please give today. Every dollar makes a difference—in fact, gets doubled! Thank you so much.

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.
