Pentagon Chief Announces $100Mln Ukraine Aid Package, Including Air Defense Munitions

US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Monday announced a new $100 million aid package for Ukraine that includes air defense munitions and anti-tank weapons.

"I announced today another $100 million drawdown, using presidential drawdown authority, to provide additional artillery munitions, additional interceptors for air defense and a number of anti-tank weapons as well. So our support continues," Austin said after meeting with Ukrainian officials in Kiev during a surprise visit.

Austin arrived in the Ukrainian capital on Monday in a trip the Pentagon said was designed to "reinforce the staunch support of the United States for Ukraine's fight for freedom."
