U.S. Security Assistance to Ukraine

On February 24th Vladimir Putin ordered a full-scale invasion of Ukraine by land, sea, and air, triggering the worst security crisis in Europe since World War II. Russia’s unprovoked assault on Ukraine is an attack on democracy and a grave violation of human rights and international law.

Congresswoman Eshoo has voted for every bill to provide security assistance to Ukraine as they defend their democracy, and will continue to. Since Russia began amassing troops along the Ukrainian border last year, the U.S. has provided more than $4 billion in security assistance to Ukraine, including the following weapons and military equipment:

  • 12,100 anti-tank missiles   
  • 1,400 anti-aircraft missiles   
  • 521 armed drones
  • 5,000 rifles
  • 1,000 pistols
  • 600 machine guns
  • 600 shotguns
  • 60 million rounds of small arms ammunition   
  • 300 grenade launchers  
  • 90 howitzer cannons
  • 442 armored vehicles  
  • 16 military helicopters  
  • Three patrol boats
  • 55,000 sets of body armor
  • 55,000 helmets
  • Tactical secure communications systems
  • Commercial satellite imagery services
  • Counter-artillery and air surveillance radar systems
  • Chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear protective equipment
  • Medical supplies

Much of the funding for this equipment has come from the $13.6 billion emergency aid package for Ukraine that Rep. Eshoo voted for and Congress passed in March.

As Russia continues its brutal onslaught against Ukraine, Rep. Eshoo remains deeply committed to providing maximum U.S. support for Ukraine with robust security assistance, lifesaving humanitarian aid, and crippling sanctions on the Putin regime.
