State Department OKs $165M Non-Standard Ammo Sale to Ukraine

The State Department has approved the immediate sale of non-standard and legacy Warsaw Pact ammunition worth $165 million to Ukraine, with prime contractors to be selected upon award.

The transaction covers ammunition, rounds and rockets for guns, howitzers, cannons, grenade launchers, mortars and tanks, as well as logistics and program support services, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said Monday.

DSCA noted that a determination and justification from U.S. State Secretary Antony Blinken on the emergency situation in Ukraine, where military conflict is happening due to Russia’s invasion, waived a congressional review requirement for the foreign military sale under the Arms Export Control Act.

The U.S. government or industry will not be required to send representatives to Ukraine upon implementation of the FMS agreement.
