The United States could use approximately $7 billion to provide military and financial assistance to Ukraine. Patrick Ryder, Pentagon press secretary, spoke about this at a briefing.
“We have a little more than $5.4 billion thanks to the recalculation of funds allocated to help Ukraine. We have about $1.6 billion to restore what was spent,” Ryder said.
A spokesman for the American defense department separately emphasized that he could not say for sure whether these funds would be enough to supply ATACMS tactical missiles to Ukraine, because the decision on their supply had not yet been made. Ryder also did not talk about how long this money would last for Kyiv, clarifying that it all depends on their needs.
Earlier it became known that Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin, together with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Charles Brown, intend to take part in a contact group meeting to discuss issues of military assistance to Ukraine. Read more about this in material Public News Service.
