US sending advanced rocket systems, other aid to Ukraine

WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States says it is sending another $450 million in military aid to Ukraine, including some additional medium-range rocket systems, to help push back Russian progress in the war.

The latest package includes four High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems, or HIMARS, which will double the number they have now.

The first four HIMARS that the U.S. previously sent have already gone into Ukraine and are in the hand of troops there. The new aid comes just a week after the U.S. announced it was sending $1 billion in military aid to Ukraine, and as the Russian military continues to slowly expand its control in the eastern Donbas region.
