Policy: The package includes artillery shells, anti-drone systems and missiles for the Patriot air defense system.

– If Putin succeeds in Ukraine, there will be serious and global consequences for security, Austin said when he presented the package at a meeting of the contact group for Ukraine.

– We will not hesitate, we will not shy away and we will not fail, continued the US defense minister.

The latest military aid has come into place after Congress this week decided to give about 61 billion dollars in aid to Ukraine. At the same time, they advocated support for Israel and Taiwan.
