Lolita C. Baldor and Ellen Knickmeyer writing in PBS News Hour, make the following points:
  • The package includes more rockets for the High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS), artillery rounds, mortar systems, Javelins and other ammunition.
  • HIMARS and artillery systems have been crucial, providing precision-guided systems.
  • A small number of HIMARS (16 currently) is a force multiplier.
  • Estimated Russian deaths and injuries to date are 80,000.
  • The U.S. and its allies are considering supplying western aircraft to Ukraine.
