Ukraine's defense forces have already received a portion of the €1 billion package of military aid from the United States, which Washington announced after Congress unblocked the funding. However, the main part of it from large aid packages, including those from Germany and Britain, will arrive in Ukraine within a few months.

This is stated in an article by The New York Times. Journalists cite American and European officials.

According to the newspaper, on April 28, Kyiv received a batch of anti-tank weapons, missiles and 155-caliber artillery shells, which are in dire need of the Ukrainian military on the battlefield. The second batch of weapons arrived in Ukraine on April 29.

On April 30, according to sources, missiles for Patriot air defense systems arrived in Poland from Spain. They will soon be in Ukraine.

At the same time, the NYT writes that the "substantial" part of the weapons from the large aid packages announced by the United States, Britain, and Germany will arrive in Ukraine in a few months. Some of the aid from the British package, announced by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on April 23, began arriving a few weeks ago.

According to the journalists' interlocutors, the main reason for such delays is logistical. Due to their size, combat vehicles, boats, guns, launchers, and air defense systems often have to be transported by sea and by heavily guarded trains.

At the same time, ammunition, which is an urgent need for the Ukrainian Armed Forces at the front, is among the weapons that can be delivered most quickly.

One U.S. official said that most of the weapons funded by the new U.S. aid, and even some ammunition, are likely to be delivered by the end of the summer or even later.

As reported, the Patriot air defense system, which Germany promised to transfer to Ukraine, will be delivered to Ukraine no earlier than summer. According to preliminary data, the Armed Forces will receive the system at the end of June 2024.
