U.S. to Send Additional $300 Million in Weapons to Ukraine

HeadlineJun 01, 2023

Ukrainian officials say Russian airstrikes on Kyiv overnight killed three people, including a mother and her 11-year-old daughter. Those attacks came as pro-Russia officials said five people had been killed by artillery fire in a Russian-occupied village in eastern Ukraine. Russia also said Ukrainian drones struck two oil refineries near Russia’s biggest oil export terminals, triggering a large fire at one of the sites.

In Washington, D.C., White House spokesperson John Kirby announced the Biden administration was sending Ukraine an additional $300 million in military equipment, including more Patriot air defense systems, anti-aircraft Stinger missiles and ammunition.
