WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. announced on Friday that it will provide Ukraine with $820 million in new military aid, including new surface-to-air missile systems and counter-artillery radars to respond to Russia’s heavily reliance on long-range strikes in the war.

The Pentagon said it would also provide the Ukrainians with up to 150,000 rounds of 155-millimeter artillery ammunition.

This is the 14th package of military weapons and equipment transferred to Ukraine from Defense Department stocks since August 2021. All told, the U.S. has provided more than $8.8 billion in weapons and other military training to Ukraine.

As part of the new package, the U.S. will purchase two systems known as NASAMS, a Norwegian-developed anti-aircraft system that is also used to protect the airspace around the White House and Capitol in Washington.

The Pentagon will also provide additional ammunition for medium-range rocket systems it provided Ukraine in June, known as the High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems, or HIMARS.

The war launched by Russia in February has evolved into a grinding stalemate in which both sides are heavily reliant on artillery, according to Western officials and analysts. While Russia has not achieved its initial goals of toppling Ukraine’s government, it is believed to be making slow progress to consolidate control over the eastern Ukrainian region known as the Donbas.

CD Projekt Red announces five upcoming Witcher games and big updates to Cyberpunk 2077

Two new games set in the Witcher universe are being made by studios outside of CD Projekt Red.

The game codenamed Sirius is being developed with the help of CDPR, and will include multiplayer alongside the mainline single-player quests.

Canis Majoris is a “full-fledged” Witcher game separate from the new saga CDPR previously announced, developed with the help of former CDPR members.

CDPR also clarified that this previously announced game will be developed into an entirely new Witcher trilogy.

It will feature a new protagonist, which fans believe will be series favourite Ciri.

The new announcement revealed that the upcoming trilogy will also be from the RPG genre.

Cyberpunk 2077 will also be receiving a large-scale update currently codenamed Project Liberty.

On top of this, a new game is in development to turn Cyberpunk 2077 into a series.

It’s codenamed Orion but few details of the project were shared aside from the fact that it will expand the world of Cyberpunk 2077.

Finally, a whole new IP was announced, currently under the codename Hadar.

Hadar is not even in the pre-production phase yet, and is more an idea that CDPR is building on.

With this plan the company hopes to release and develop three separate franchises in order to keep the studio successful.

Aside from Sirius, CDPR also stated that it hopes to incorporate more multiplayer into its games moving forward.

This could mean that Orion and Hadar will also be developed with multiplayer in mind.
