As part of the package, Washington will provide Kyiv with "more ammunition for US-provided HIMARS and howitzers, which Ukraine is using so effectively to defend itself," US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said.

He added that the new weapons package would also include "ammunition for Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles, Armored Vehicle Launched Bridges, demolitions munitions and equipment."

The Armored Vehicle Launched Bridge is a portable folding metal bridge that could help Ukrainian troops cross rivers to battle Russian forces, news outlets reported.

The United States has committed more than USD 32 billion in security aid to Ukraine since the start of Russia’s full-scale invasion in February last year, according to officials.

Friday was day 373 of Russia’s war on Ukraine.
