(EFE).- United States president Joe Biden on Thursday said Washington would announce an additional $800 million in weaponry to be delivered to Ukraine.

The White House leader was speaking at a press conference at the closing of a Nato summit in the Spanish capital Madrid.

“In the next few days we intend to announce over $800 million more including new advanced western air defense systems for Ukraine, more artillery and ammunition, counter battery radars, additional ammunition for the HIMARs multiple launch rocket system we’ve already given Ukraine, and more Himars from other countries as well,” he said.

Biden highlighted that the US had already provided $7 billion in security systems since he took office. EFE
