On the same day that the Russian military attacked a Ukrainian Black Sea port with Iranian-made Shahed drones, the Pentagon announced a $2.6 billion arms package for Ukraine that includes counter-drone defense capabilities. The package, which includes Javelin anti-tank missiles and other lethal weapons, is aimed at bolstering Ukraine’s defense against Russian aggression. The attack on the Ukrainian port demonstrates the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia, with the use of advanced drone technology adding to the complexity of the situation. The arms package sends a clear message of support for Ukraine from the United States in the face of continued Russian provocations.
