Situation report day 247

By Jordi Bou

October 28, 2022 - The Pentagon is sending Ukraine a new $275 million package of weapons and other aid, in a move to bolster the effort to drive Russian forces out of key areas in the south as the winter closes in, U.S. officials say.

According to AP, the aid package is largely aimed at restocking thousands of rounds of ammunition for U.S. weapons systems already in Ukraine, including for the High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems, known as HIMARS, which Ukraine has been successfully using in its counteroffensive against Russia.

The new aid comes as fighting on the ground has slowed in recent days, with a much anticipated Ukrainian advance on the southern city of Kherson stalled due to poor weather.
