$275 Million in Additional Presidential Drawdown Security Assistance for Ukraine

Today, the Department of Defense (DoD) announces the authorization of a Presidential Drawdown of security assistance valued at up to $275 million to meet Ukraine’s critical security and defense needs. This authorization is the Biden Administration’s twenty-fourth drawdown of equipment from DoD inventories for Ukraine since August 2021.

Capabilities in this package include:

  • Additional ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS);
  • 500 precision-guided 155mm artillery rounds;
  • 2,000 155mm rounds of Remote Anti-Armor Mine (RAAM) Systems;
  • More than 1,300 anti-armor systems;
  • 125 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs);
  • Small arms and more than 2,750,000 rounds of small arms ammunition; and
  • Four satellite communications antennas.

In total, the United States has committed more than $18.5 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since January 2021, including approximately $17.9 billion since the beginning of Russia’s unprovoked and brutal invasion on February 24, 2022. Air defense capabilities have been, and will continue to be, a U.S. priority for Ukraine. As Secretary Austin said, the two initial NASAMS that the United States has committed to providing will be ready for delivery to Ukraine early next month and the United States is working with our Allies to transfer air defense systems of their own to Ukraine.

To meet Ukraine’s evolving battlefield requirements, the United States will continue to work with its Allies and partners to provide Ukraine with key capabilities.
