ALBAWABA - The United States announced it will disburse $2.5 billion in military assistance for Ukraine.
The assistance package will include hundreds of armored vehicles as well as air defense systems, but no tanks despite Kyiv's repeated calls for the front-line combat machinery.
The aid will also comprise more than 550 armored vehicles, including 59 Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles and 90 Stryker Armored Personnel Carriers, among others.

Furthermore, several European countries promised a raft of new military aid for Ukraine during a meeting in Estonia on Thursday, the Deutsche Welle stated.
The pledged military aid package comes after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's request from world leaders for more advanced and modern weapons to counter the Russian offensive on his country, which began nearly 11 months ago.
