A new disbursement of U.S. military aid for Ukraine in the amount of $400 million is expected to be approved Friday.  The total in taxpayer dollars released by the Pentagon, including this boost, is $32 billion as the draw down of existing weapons stocks continues.  In this package is an undisclosed amount of rounds for howitzers, other ammunition, demolition munitions and other equipment to clear obstacles, spare parts and vehicle maintenance and repair equipment.  Except for the U.S. and China, the total amount sent to Ukraine by America exceeds the annual military budgets of every country in the world.
