The aid is part of an announcement by the U.S. Department of Defense of $300 million in additional security assistance to Ukraine.
The U.S. Department of Defense press secretary John Kirby said at a news conference on April 4 that the United States will continue to support Ukraine and safeguard its ability to defend itself.
