According to Suspilne, the United States Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, announced this at a press conference in Kyiv with Ukrainian Foreign Minister, Dmytro Kuleba.

Quote"Today, we’re announcing new assistance, totaling more than $1 billion. That includes $665.5 million in new military and civilian security assistance. In total, we’ve committed more than $43 billion in security assistance since the beginning of Russian aggression. Since I was last here, almost exactly one year ago, Ukrainian forces have taken back more than 50 percent of the territories seized by Russian forces since February 2022. This new assistance… will provide significant support for Ukraine's air defenses," said Blinken.

The United States will also provide $300 million to support law enforcement efforts.

Earlier, the Pentagon ordered AMRAAM missiles for Ukraine. This is the main medium-range air-to-air missile type used by all modern fighters in the American air force.

The $192 million contract was made with Raytheon Missiles and Defense, headquartered in Tucson, Arizona.

The delivery terms and the number of missiles haven’t been disclosed. However, the contract is expected to be completed by November 29, 2024.
