Aid to Ukraine topped $3 billion under Biden

Over the past nine months, the Biden administration has approved billions in military assistance — including anti-aircraft systems and Javelin missiles — to help Ukraine stop Russia’s brutal invasion.

  • Since August, US military aid to help Ukraine fend off Russia has topped $3 billion under Biden.
  • The aid provided more than 1,400 Stinger anti-aircraft systems and some 5,500 Javelin missiles.
  • Biden on Wednesday provided an additional $800 million to expand Ukraine’s military capabilities for an interminable war.

WASHINGTON — More than 1,400 Stinger anti-aircraft systems. Some 5,500 Javelin missiles. Over 7,000 small arms. And 50 million cartridges.

Vowing that the United States will continue to “stand with Ukraine,” President Joe Biden and his administration have committed $2.6 billion in U.S. military aid to Ukraine since Russia’s 24 February, providing a range of weapons for the defense of Ukraine against Russian aggression.
