US announces new $125 mln weapons package for Ukraine

Washington, The Gulf Observer: The United States will provide additional arms and equipment to Ukraine for its ongoing fight against Russia, U.S. Secretary of Staten Antony Blinken said in a statement on Friday, according to the reports of Reuters.

The announced $125 million worth of weapons, authorized under previously allowed “drawdowns” for Ukraine, comes amid other expected defense aid for Kyiv that could include about $300 million worth of laser-guided munitions to shoot down drones, according to a document seen by a U.S. official.
