The agency notified Congress of the possibility of implementing this program on May 16, 2024.

"The Government of Ukraine has requested to purchase equipment and services for the sustained support of vehicles and weapons systems," the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said.

The statement emphasized that Ukraine urgently needs to strengthen local maintenance capabilities to maintain high operational rates for US-supplied vehicles and weapons systems.

"This support will directly contribute to Ukraine's battlefield effectiveness through improved logistics and contribute to more resilient and faster repair cycles," the Agency said in a statement.

Currently, Ukrainian troops use a wide range of US military equipment and systems.

The United States supplies Ukraine with armored personnel carriers, infantry fighting vehicles, tanks, engineering vehicles and air defense systems.

At the same time, military units in Ukraine are trying to restore various systems on their own. Recently, Ukrainian craftsmen demonstrated the process of restoring M777 howitzers.
