[Asiantaeth Newyddion Tsieina]The US State Department issued a statement on the 3rd local time, saying that the US will provide another 400 million US dollars in military aid to Ukraine.

US Secretary of State Blinken said in a statement that as the conflict between Russia and Ukraine continues, the US will provide an additional $400 million in military aid to Ukraine, including rockets for the Artillery Rocket System High Mobility (HIMARS), various ammunition, armored bridge vehicles, etc. The $400 million in aid will be drawn from Defense Department stockpiles.
