Biden announces $800 million more for Ukraine today. That’s $1.2 billion so far this week. (That they admit to.)

Earlier in the week, US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said that a new defense package for Ukraine, that includes advanced medium and long-range air defense capabilities, was in the works.
The United States will announce over $800 million in new funding for Ukraine over the coming days, air defense included, US President Joe Biden said when speaking at the NATO summit in Madrid.
Kiev has already received over $12 billion in financial and military assistance since the start of Russia’s military operation, according to Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal.
Biden’s announcement of the new funding package comes shortly after US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan confirmed that Washington was finalizing the deal that includes “advanced medium and long-range air defense capabilities for the Ukrainians, along with some other items that are of urgent need, including ammunition for artillery and counter-battery radar systems.”
