President Joe Biden said the US would give Ukraine as much as $600 million in additional weaponry from US stockpiles for its fight against Russia, as his administration seeks to add momentum to a recent counteroffensive by Ukrainian troops. 

The aid, which Biden announced in a memorandum to Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Thursday, would mark the 21st time the administration has drawn down US inventories to send weaponry to Ukraine since September 2021.
