The Press Secretary said the package will include additional ammunition for HIMARS multiple-launch missile systems and armour-piercing systems, as well as artillery shells.

Jean-Pierre noted that the package will be allocated under the Presidential Arms Reduction Initiative, which allows the US leader to transfer weapons from US stockpiles in emergency situations.

The last military aid package totalling US$2.6 billion was announced by the United States in early April.

In total, the United States has announced military aid to Ukraine worth about US$33 billion since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion.
