The United States has been delivering the largest ever consignment of weapons to the warring Ukraine with Russia. The Biden administration said it would direct delivery of its largest consignment of weapons to Ukraine so far.

The United States is providing rockets, ammunition and other military supplies to Ukraine as part of $1 billion in aid from its defense reserves.
Announcing the shipment of new weapons, Colin Kahl, Under Secretary of the US Department of Defense Policy, said that at each stage of this conflict, we are focused on helping Ukraine as they need it based on evolving conditions on the battlefield. . The shipment of new American weapons will further strengthen Ukraine in the Ukraine-Russia war.
Analysts say that this supply of weapons to Ukraine will prove to be very helpful. New US aid includes High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems, HIMARS, NASAMS rockets, as well as thousands of artillery rounds, mortar systems, and other ammunition and equipment. Along with this 50 M113 armored medical transports are also included.
