US president authorizes another military aid delivery to Ukraine worth $550 mln

US President Joe Biden on Monday signed a memorandum authorizing another delivery of US military assistance to Ukraine, worth $550 million.

"I hereby delegate to the Secretary of State the authority <…> to direct the drawdown of up to $550 million in defense articles and services of the Department of Defense, and military education and training, to provide assistance to Ukraine," reads a memorandum, released by the White House press service.

In turn, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a statement the new package would include "more ammunition for the High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) and 155mm artillery systems."

This drawdown will bring total US military assistance to Ukraine to approximately $8.7 billion since the beginning of the Joe Biden administration.
