U.S. announces $275 million in new military aid for Ukraine
The U.S. has authorized a new $275 million aid package for Ukraine to address "critical security and defense needs," the Department of Defense said Friday.
Why it matters: The Biden administration has now sent $19.3 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since the start of Russia's unprovoked invasion last February, according to the DOD announcement.
This is the 27th time the Biden administration has sent equipment to Ukraine since August 2021, the DOD said.
Zoom in: The new assistance package will offer Ukraine a chance "to boost its air defenses"...
