The next package of military assistance to Ukraine will also include JDAM kits, with the help of which the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be able to convert free-fall bombs into all-weather corrected (“smart”) bombs.
Military aid is estimated at $1.8 billion. A very big package, say AP journalists.
Ukraine has long been asking the United States to transfer the Patriot air defense system to them, but Washington refused, fearing escalation.
It is also noted that Kyiv will receive modernized systems, just to intercept ballistic missiles.
