US President Joe Biden announced on Tuesday a new shipment of military aid to Ukraine for US $ 625 million, in a phone call with his counterpart Volodimir Zelensky, according to a White House statement.
Biden promised “Continue to support Ukraine as it defends itself from Russian aggression for as long as it takes.”
This shipment includes four new Himars for the Ukrainian army, the State Department said.
These powerful rocket launcher systems have played a significant role in recent Ukrainian military advances.
The rest of the new package comprises 32 guns howitzertens of thousands of light and artillery ammunition, mine systems and 200 armored vehicles.
The Russian army withdrew this Tuesday in the Kharkov region (northeast) and in the Kherson region (south), according to the maps presented by the Russian Ministry of Defense, which illustrate the latest successes of the Ukrainian counteroffensive in the territories annexed by Moscow. .
