US officials announced last night that they will send $275 million worth of weapons to "help Ukraine repel a Russian offensive near Kharkiv."

The equipment, from the US military stockpile, includes ammunition for the Himars missile system, artillery shells, rockets and anti-tank weapons, the US State Department said, adding that the weapons were "urgently needed" by Ukraine.

It is the fifth aid shipment approved by President Joseph Biden since Congress passed a $61 billion aid package in late April, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said.

He added that the aid sent earlier has already arrived at the front.
