What's Another $800 Million of U.S. Aid Buying For Ukraine?

Background: On Wednesday, President Joe Biden announced that the U.S. would provide Ukraine with $800 million in military aid. The announcement came hours after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky pleaded with Congress for more help.

  • This aid is not part of the $13.6 billion aid package to Ukraine that Congress passed last week.

  • Anti-aircraft weapons

  • Heavy anti-armor missiles

  • Light anti-armor weapons

  • Armed drones

  • Weapons for military and civilian use, including grenade launchers, rifles, pistols, machine guns, and shotguns.

  • Body armor

  • Ammunition

The U.S. is still hesitant about sending MiG fighter jets and enacting a no-fly zone, fearing escalation.
