Fact Sheet on U.S. Security Assistance for Ukraine
The United States has committed more than $3.2 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since the beginning of the Biden Administration, including approximately $2.6 billion since the beginning of Russia's unprovoked assault on February 24.
On April 13, the Department of Defense outlined the seventh drawdown of equipment from DoD inventories for Ukraine since August 2002; this seventh drawdown, valued at up to an additional $800 million, is tailored to meet urgent Ukrainian needs for today's fight as Russian forces shift the focus of their ruthless aggression to eastern Ukraine.
In addition to the U.S.-produced short-range air defense systems the Ukrainians have been using to great effect, the United States has also identified and is helping the Ukrainians acquire additional, longer-range systems on which Ukraine's forces are already trained, as well as additional munitions for those systems.
The United States continues to expedite the authorization and facilitation of additional assistance to Ukraine from our Allies. At least 30 countries have provided security assistance to Ukraine since this Russian invasion began. In 2022, the Department of State authorized third-party transfers of defensive equipment from more than 14 countries, a number that continues to grow as Allies and Partners increase support to Ukraine.
