Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba and U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken during a phone call on Wednesday discussed arms supplies to Ukraine as part of U.S. security assistance.
The head of Ukrainian diplomacy announced this on Twitter, Ukrinform reports.
“Weapons were the focus of my call with Secretary Blinken: we coordinated further supplies from the U.S. and partners. Military aid to Ukraine shortens the war and remains the best investment in the long-term security of Europe and the world. Grateful for the unfaltering U.S. support,” the foreign minister wrote.
As Ukrinform reported earlier, on August 8, U.S. President Joe Biden authorized an additional package of security aid for Ukraine in the total amount of $1 billion. It will include additional ammunition for the HIMARS systems; 75,000 shells for 155-mm artillery, twenty 120-mm mortar systems, and 20,000 shells for 120-mm mortars, ammunition for NASAMS anti-aircraft missile systems, as well as other weapons.
