The United States is completing the acquisition of the next package of military assistance to Ukraine. For the first time, the assistance package will include modern medium- and long-range air defense systems.

“We are actually in the process of finalizing a package that includes advanced air defense capabilities,” Jake Sullivan, the national security adviser to the American president, told reporters in Germany.

According to him, President Biden assured President Zelensky that the United States would send Ukraine “modern medium- and long-range air defense systems.” Artillery ammunition and counter-battery radars are also attached to them.

The President of Ukraine made a video call to the G7 leaders gathered for the summit in Germany. According to Sullivan, in his address to the leaders of the “Big Seven” Zelensky, mentioning Sunday’s rocket attack on Kiev, made it clear that he wanted to get systems that “could shoot down missiles in the sky.”
