The U.S. is expected to announce on Tuesday about the allocation of a new military aid package for Ukraine valued at $150 million.

That’s according to AP, Ukrinform reports.

“The U.S. is expected to announce Tuesday it is sending an additional $150 million in critically needed munitions to Ukraine,” the report says.

As noted, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will receive anti-armor weapons, small arms and grenades and 155 mm and 105 mm artillery rounds, among other support.

One of the U.S. officials said they could not verify whether this aid package included ATACMS munitions, but said the aid did not include cluster munitions.

“The continued flow of U.S. munitions, which will be drawn from existing stockpiles, is intended to help Ukrainian forces repel intensified Russian attacks,” the report says.

As Ukrinform reported, in early June, U.S. President Joe Biden said that the United States would provide Ukraine with a $225 million aid package to be used, among other things, to restore power grids.
