Washington. The US on Thursday announced another major package of arms and ammunition worth $2.5 billion for Ukraine. The pro-Ukraine western countries have decided to give a large number of armored vehicles to Kyiv in view of its demand to strengthen its armored force. So that he can be able to counter the Russian attack. The Pentagon said the $2.5 billion Ukraine defense package includes assault armored vehicles and more Bradley fighting vehicles for the first time, which could be used against any possible Russian offensive in Ukraine this spring.

According to a news agency AFP, this defense package for Ukraine was published a day before the meeting of an international coalition in Germany to discuss giving more help to Ukraine. This is the second largest defense package announced by the US for Ukraine. The biggest defense package was over $3 billion and was announced earlier this month. The new defense package includes 90 Stryker armored vehicles and 59 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles. The previous package included 50 Bradleys. In this way, now the total Bradley will be more than 100.

Ammunition for the HIMARS rocket system is also included in the new defense package given by the US to Ukraine. Which has been used by Ukraine against Russian weapons depots and command posts as well as for air defense. Since the start of the war nearly a year ago, the US has given Ukraine $26.7 billion in security aid. The over $3 billion defense package announced last week included 50 armored Bradley vehicles. America and other countries have given several consignments of armored vehicles to Ukraine. But no one has promised to give tanks except Britain. Britain promised last week that it would send Challenger 2 tanks to Ukraine, while the US said it was reluctant to give Ukraine its Abrams tanks because of maintenance and training difficulties.
