As part of that commitment, I am proud to announce our biggest tranche of security assistance to date: approximately $2.98 billion of weapons and equipment to be provided through the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative," the US president said in a statement.

Biden noted that these funds would allow Ukraine to receive:
