The Ukrainian authorities have received the first batch of additional assistance from the U.S. government to ensure security. The press service of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine reported on Sunday.

“Loads of additional security assistance from the U.S. government have arrived in Ukraine. In addition to the previously agreed amount of $ 250 million, Ukraine receives from American partners medical equipment, weapons, necessary ammunition, precision weapons, and radar surveillance equipment for another $ 60 million. The cargo arrives in several batches, one of which arrived today, October 10, at Boryspil International Airport,” the message on the website of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine reads.

The Defense Ministry added that since 2014, Ukraine had received logistical support from the United States, totaling more than two billion dollars.

“The provision of additional security assistance from the United States Government to the Armed Forces of Ukraine is another evidence of the unbreakable strategic partnership between our states,” the Defense Ministry added.
