Details of the aid package should be announced next Monday (August 8). According to Reuters, it should contain ammunition for HIMARS mobile missile systems, up to 50 M113 tracked armored personnel carriers and ammunition for NASAMS air defense systems.

US President Joe Biden has not yet signed this package, and its value and specific military equipment may change by next week, the agency adds.
