$9 billion. The package expected to be announced this week is not included in the 19 military aid packages the Biden administration has committed to. According to the Department of Defense, the US has provided over $12 billion in security assistance to the Ukrainian government.

Key Background

The United States has provided more advanced equipment to Ukraine, moving from anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles to advanced rocket systems. The spending package last week included $775 million for HIMARS and mine resistant vehicles. A week after the Biden Administration pledged $1 billion in military spending, it sent another $550 million and two weeks after a $270 million package. The US gave the Ukrainian government $4.5 billion in economic aid last week. In May, President Joe Biden signed into law a spending bill that included military and humanitarian aid for Ukraine, amounting to 5% of the entire U.S. national security budget.

The Department of Defense said in a statement last week that they would support Ukraine as they defended their democracy.


In recent months, fighting has centered on the Donbas region in eastern Ukraine, after Russia abandoned a larger effort to take the city. The United Nations warned that a nuclear catastrophe is possible due to fighting near the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. Russian and Ukrainian officials blamed each other for the attacks, with the Kremlin accusing Ukraine of "nuclear blackmail" by ramping up tensions around the nuclear reactor, which are controlled by Russian forces.
