The United States will deliver another $675 million in military equipment to Ukraine, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said Thursday, at the start of talks with allies on boosting Kyiv’s armaments store.

“This is the Biden administration’s twentieth drawdown of equipment from US stocks for Ukraine since last August,” said Austin. He said the package would include 105mm howitzers, precision-guided GMLRS rockets and artillery ammunition.
