Another—the third one—cargo of military aid from the United States has arrived at Boryspil International Airport. This time, the American side handed over high-tech and highly scarce equipment and weapons, as well as the ammunition needed to the front line.
"Today we got a batch of Javelin anti-tank missile systems with ammunition. We also got ammunition for the weapons that we have intended for the "NATO caliber". The weapons will be moved to bases and warehouses, taken into account and handed over to the military for use, including by the units of the Joint Forces Operation," the press service of the Ministry of Defense quotes Lieutenant General Mykola Shevtsov as saying.
Context. Let us recall: the second aid consignment that included weapons, ammunition for it, and medicines arrived in Ukraine on October 18. The first cargo was delivered on 10 September. All three cargoes were the result of agreements reached by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy during his visit to the United States. In total, these aid consignments are estimated at $60 million.
Ukraine received this cargo in addition to the previously agreed volume of aid in the amount of $250 million.
