The United States has prepared an additional package of military assistance to Ukraine and mulls over the supply of Stinger surface-to-air missiles.
As NBC News reports citing sources, the Biden administration has prepared a new U.S. package of military aid for Ukraine, in addition to the American military assistance that is already flowing to Kyiv. In particular, the United States is working with other NATO alliance members to arrange for the delivery of Stinger shoulder-launched anti-aircraft missiles requested by the government in Kyiv. “Ukrainian officials believe the Stinger surface-to-air missiles would help its military defend the country against low-flying Russian helicopters and drones,” reads the article.
According to sources, the United States is ready to provide this assistance to Ukraine, as well as to support NATO's eastward enlargement in case of the Russian invasion.
As reported, Latvian Defense Minister Artis Pabriks assured Ukrainian Ambassador Oleksandr Mishchenko that the Baltic country would provide assistance to Ukraine in the form of weapons and military equipment.
