Breaking down the billions of dollars in U.S. military aid to Ukraine

Even before the $20 billion military aid package, which passed the Senate Thursday, the United States was already the largest donor of military aid to Ukraine as it defends itself against a Russian invasion.

The latest package, part of a nearly $40 billion aid bill, goes beyond sending weapons and represents a long-term commitment to U.S. involvement in the war. The money would also go toward ramping up production of U.S. weapon stocks to replenish the significant amount of weaponry already sent to Ukraine.

Every year, the United States spends billions of dollars to fund the other militaries, including Israel and Jordan. But in three months, commitments to Ukraine have eclipsed annual U.S. military assistance to its closest partners.
