As Russia has intensified its attack in eastern Ukraine, where the open terrain favors artillery battles, the United States is committing to sending more military aid to help Ukrainian troops. President Joe Biden announced an additional $150 million in aid, to include 25,000 155mm artillery rounds, counter-artillery radars, jamming equipment, and field equipment and spare parts.
