The new US military aid to Ukraine includes four Hymers highly mobile artillery rocket systems, and 36,000 105 mm rounds..
Hymers missile systems top the list of demands of the Ukrainian leadership, especially as the Russian forces are making great progress in the east of the country with the support of heavy artillery, which gives them an advantage on the battlefield.
The United States has actually delivered four Hymers units to Ukraine initially in preparation for launching a training program required for Ukrainian soldiers for the effective operation of these advanced and high-precision rocket launchers.
The new US aid to Ukraine also includes 18 tactical vehicles to tow 155 mm artillery, 1,200 grenade launchers, 2,000 machine guns, 18 coastal and river patrol boats, as well as thousands of spare parts and other equipment.
Pentagon spokesman Todd Pressel told reporters that the United States has so far committed $6.8 billion in military aid to Ukraine under President Joe Biden’s administration, including about $6.1 billion since the start of the Russian attack on Ukraine on February 24.
He added that since 2014, the United States has committed more than $8.7 billion in combat aid to Ukraine.
The United States, according to a Pentagon spokesperson, will continue to work with its allies and partners to provide Ukraine in the coming period with the military capabilities to meet the requirements of the battlefield against Moscow.
