Media: The US is preparing a $6 billion aid package for Ukraine with Patriot systems

You are referring to own sources claim that the United States is in the final stages of agreeing on one of the largest aid packages for Ukraine ever.

As early as Friday, during a meeting of the Ukraine Defense Contact Group, Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin may announce the allocation of 6 billion dollars, for which American manufacturers will order Patriot air defense systems, artillery shells, drones, anti-drone weapons and air-to-air missiles for fighters.

Since the weapons will not be taken from the US's own stockpiles, but are specified in contracts with supplier companies, it may take years for them to reach Ukraine.

  • The United States will allocate $1.6 billion for Ukrainian-made weapons.
  • Joe Biden allowed the transfer of long-range ATACMS missiles to Ukraine back in February.
  • The Pentagon announced about a $1 billion aid package with what Ukraine needs right now.
