Details: Babb said the new US military aid package will include AIM-9 and TOW missiles, ammunition for HIMARS systems, precision-guided aircraft munitions, and 155mm and 105mm artillery projectiles.

Furthermore, it is expected to contain equipment to fight drones, AT4 anti-tank grenade launchers, ammunition for small arms and much more.

This aid package will be covered by funds that the Pentagon saved due to an accounting error. It allows for weapons and ammunition to be sent to Kyiv despite the exclusion of new aid to Ukraine from the stopgap spending bill passed by the House of Representatives last weekend to avert a shutdown.
