(ANSA) – NEW YORK, MARCH 5 – The United States began arming Ukraine as early as the beginning of December, providing it with weapons and equipment useful for urban combat. The Washington Post reported that it cited some confidential documents that contain a list of deliveries that have been made. In the past week, shipments increased, including for Stinger missiles for the first time.
Meanwhile, The New York Times writes that the United States has delivered about 70% of the weapons envisaged in the $350 million package Joe Biden agreed to help Ukraine.
The weapons reached Poland and Romania and then were sent overland to western Ukraine for distribution throughout the territory. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Armed Forces, Mark Milley, inspected the arms transfer during a surprise visit during which he met with troops and personnel from 22 countries working to unload weapons for overland transport to Ukrainian forces.
