The Biden Administration is preparing its next military aid package for Ukraine, according to senior officials, TURAN's Washington correspondent reports.

It is expected to include HIMARS, and various artillery munitions, the officials said.

John Kirby, White House National Security Council spokesman, confirmed on Tuesday that the latest security package will be tailored to fighting in eastern Ukraine.

The latest round of aid, the 16th such installment, will bring the U.S. military aid commitment up to about $8 billion since the war began in February, including about $2.2 billion in the past month.

The move comes as Ukrainian first lady Olena Zelenska is visiting Washington D.C. where she privately met with first lady Jill Biden on Tuesday and took part in a larger bilateral meeting with American officials.

Zelenska was greeted at the White House by President Joe Biden and Jill Biden. The President handed a large bouquet of flowers to Zelenska when she got out of the car and the two first ladies hugged.

According to the White House, the first ladies discussed the U.S.’ continued support for the government of Ukraine and its people as they defend their democracy and cope with the significant human impacts of Russia’s war, "which will be felt for years to come.”
