Joe Biden on Thursday announced an additional $800 million in military aid for Ukraine, matching the same amount designated last week. 

“We will never fail in our efforts to defend freedom and oppose tyranny,” Biden said. 

He said that not all the U.S. assistance is being advertised. 

“Sometimes we will speak softly and carry a large Javelin, because we’re sending a lot of those in as well,” he said. 

The package will include heavy artillery, dozens of howitzers, 144,000 rounds of ammunition to be used with the howitzers, and more tactical drones, Biden said. 

The funding will also cover vehicles to tow howitzers and other field equipment. 

“Every American taxpayer, every member of our armed forces can be proud of the fact that our country’s generosity and the skill and service of our military helped arm and repel Russia’s aggression in Ukraine,” Biden said.
