United States President Joe Biden declared Monday that the United States would provide Ukraine with a $1 billion cost of other security services, the most comprehensive one-time weapons parcel since the start of the Russia-Ukraine dispute.
According to a piece of information by the Department of Defense, the package – the 18th tranche of presidential drawdown since August 2021 – contained more munitions for the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System, 75,000 rounds of 155 mm guns shot, 20 mortar techniques of 120 mm, and 20,000 rounds of 120 mm artillery ammunition, as well as munitions for National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System.
The USA will also supply to Kyiv 1,000 Javelins, hundreds of AT4 anti-armour systems, 50 armoured medical treatment vehicles, anti-personnel munitions, explosives, demolition munitions and demolition equipment, the statement declared.
According to the Pentagon, the just reported aid conveys the real US promise of security service to Ukraine to approximately $9.8 billion since Biden took the seat.
The Ukrainian parliament on Monday revealed a current direction to set new sanctions on Moscow. The bill, offered by Ukrainian President Zelensky, envisages 10 new restrictive standards to be introduced against Moscow over the next 10 years.
The draft law prohibits moving accounts from Ukraine to Russia-related people and legal commodities.
Besides, it restricts Russia-linked people from experiencing the privatization and lease of Ukrainian state effects and buying land plots in Ukraine. The statement also offers to ban Russian and Russia-linked vessels and aircraft from penetrating Ukraine, among other measures.
Kyiv and Moscow have traded charges over a walkout on the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant (NPP), one of Europe’s largest atomic power complexes, generating a quarter of Ukraine’s total electricity.
The Russian defence ministry stated Monday that Kyiv’s shelling of the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant was an act of “nuclear terrorism.”
As a result of the strike, Ukrainian forces damaged a high-voltage line, which supplied electricity to the Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions, it said in a statement.
Moscow representative Dmitry Peskov told Monday that the Ukrainian powers’ shelling of the nuclear plant’s territory was “excessively destructive,” counting that such activities could lead to “catastrophic consequences” for all of Europe.
On Sunday, Ukraine’s state-run nuclear power operator Energoatom blamed Russian powers for shelling the power plant, expressing that the latest rocket raids hit the space next to the plant’s dry hold structure, where 174 receptacles with expended nuclear fuel were stored in the open air.
