  • The US has committed more than $43.8 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since Russia's invasion.

  • That includes more than 2,000 Stinger anti-aircraft systems, or MANPADS.

  • Here are all the weapons the US has sent Ukraine since Russia invaded last year.

When Russia invaded Ukraine, the conventional wisdom — in both Moscow and Washington — was that the country would fall within weeks, if not days. Now, almost 600 days later, Russia — instead of celebrating a grand victory — is fighting off a Ukrainian counteroffensive.

Ukraine's surprising resiliency is a credit to a military that remade itself after 2014 when Russia illegally annexed Crimea and sent troops and arms into the Donbas following the Maidan revolution. But it's also a product of support from the United States and its European allies.

Since February 2022, the US has provided more than $43.8 billion in security assistance to Ukraine — and $21.9 billion since President Joe Biden took office — including some 80,000 artillery rounds and an undisclosed amount of ordinance for the advanced HIMARS artillery system credited with pushing back Russian forces in the east of the country.

In early September, the Biden administration announced a $600 million aid package that includes more HIMARS ammunition and, for the first time, depleted uranium tank rounds.

According to a fact sheet released by the State Department, the US had by early December provided Ukraine with the following weapons systems and ammunition:

  • Over 2,00 Stinger anti-aircraft systems;
