These vehicles formed the second batch of some 230 expected as part of Washington's multi-million dollar package of non-lethal aid for Ukrainian government forces and Ukraine's State Border Guard Service.

IN March 2015, Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko took delivery of 10 US armored vehicles, two days after American lawmakers voted to urge President Barack Obama to provide "lethal" aid to Kiev.

Dressed in camouflage, the Ukraine leader thanked Washington for the 10 Humvees, the first of 30 promised by Washington, as they arrived at Kiev's Boryspil International Airport.

In total, the US plans to send 200 regular Humvees, radios, counter-mortar radars and other non-lethal equipment worth $75 million.

In December 2014, A $1.1 trillion spending bill that includes provisions to assist Ukraine and punish Russia for its annexation of Crimea has passed the U.S. House of Representatives.
