In total, the United States has committed more than $18.5 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since January 2021, including approximately $17.9 billion since the beginning of Russia's unprovoked and brutal invasion on February 24, 2022. Air defense capabilities have been and will continue to be a U.S. priority for Ukraine. As Defense Secretary Austin said, the two initial NASAMS that the United States has committed to providing will be ready for delivery to Ukraine early next month and the United States is working with our Allies to transfer air defense systems of their own to Ukraine.
