The US Department of Defense has implored Congress to approve the national security supplemental request in order to continue to meet Kyiv's battlefield needs.

After providing Ukraine with 50 security assistance packages, the Pentagon will run out of resources over the next week to continually support Kyiv, should US lawmakers fail to approve the national security supplemental request.

To date, the Department of Defense (DoD) has used 95% of the US$62.3 billion it had in Ukraine supplemental resources and almost all of the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative (USAI) funding, with $1 billion remaining to replenish US reserves.
