Pentagon: US has transferred 80% of M777 Howitzers destined to Ukraine
Pentagon says more than 5,000 Javelin missiles have been delivered to Ukraine since the start of the war.
A senior US Defense Department official told reporters on Monday that the US does not see an indication that Russia may expand the war in Ukraine to Moldova.
Regarding the transfer of Mi-17 transport helicopters, the official said that they have not yet been delivered to Ukraine, but they will be soon.
"None of the Mi-17s have been delivered into Ukraine yet but that will change, that will begin to change very, very shortly."
Regarding the matter of military assistance to Kiev, the Pentagon official said there have been 14 flights with military supplies for Ukraine from the continental United States, and 23 flights from five other countries in the past 24 hours.
Also, the official stated that the US has delivered more than 5,000 Javelin missiles to Ukraine since the beginning of the war.
"I know for a fact, on Friday it was more than 5,000 Javelin since the beginning of the invasion that have made it into Ukraine," the official said during a press briefing.
The US has also transferred 80% of the M777 Howitzers allocated for Kiev to Ukraine, meaning more than 70 of them out of 90, and also nearly all of the radars committed to that country.
