STOCKHOLM (AP) — The U.S. is sending Ukraine about $325 million in additional military aid, including an enormous amount of artillery rounds and ammunition as the launch of the spring offensive against Russian forces approaches.

The U.S. has declined to say exactly how much munitions will be sent to Ukraine. But the latest package resembles other recent deliveries, which included rockets for the High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems, or HIMARS, and howitzers, as well as an array of other missiles and anti-tank ammunition.

It will all be pulled from Pentagon stocks, so it can go quickly to the front lines.
