The Pentagon announced Thursday that it is sending an additional $2.5 billion in military aid to Ukraine, including 90 Stryker combat vehicles for the first time and another 59 Bradley fighting vehicles.

The latest package will also replenish the U.S.-supplied High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS), the National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile Systems, and Avenger air defense systems, which the Pentagon says will "counter a range of short and medium range threats and bolster Ukraine’s layered air defense."

Missing from the latest package are M1 Abrams tanks, which Kyiv has been asking for in recent months.
