WASHINGTON — With last week’s Pentagon announcement of another eye-watering $1.1 billion in security assistance to Ukraine, the US has committed more than $16.2 billion in defense aid since Russia’s invasion in February. And while some of that money covers training and other personnel issues, a majority of it is in cold, hard weapons systems — from HIMARS long-range artillery to anti-tank Javelins to over 60 million rounds of small arms ammunition.

Breaking Defense has been tracking the arms shipments, and below is an updated infographic based on the Defense Department’s latest release [PDF].
