    The United States on Tuesday announced plans to deliver $625 million in additional military aid to Ukraine, a package that includes advanced rocket systems that many say are helping the country gain ground in its war with Russia.

    President Joe Biden gave details of the new package — which includes HIMARS mobile rocket systems, ammunition for artillery systems and armored vehicles — during a call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. Vice President Kamala Harris was also on Tuesday’s call.

    The U.S. and Ukrainian leaders spoke as Russia’s upper house of parliament formally approved the annexation of parts of Ukraine’s territory following referenda that Ukraine and its Western allies have called fraudulent.

    “President Biden also confirmed the persistent willingness of the United States to impose severe sanctions against any individual, entity or country that supports the alleged annexation by Russia,” the Nlanca House said in a statement.

    This round of military aid marks the first time the United States has sent additional HIMARS to Ukraine since late July. The systems – the new assistance includes four additional HIMRS bringing the total sent to Ukraine to 20 – have become a key tool in Ukraine’s ability to destroy bridges that Russia has used to supply its soldiers, allowing Ukrainian forces advance through Moscow-controlled regions.

    In recent weeks, the United States has also offered funding through a separate program — the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative — so that another 18 HIMARS can be purchased on long-term contracts.
