Pentagon accounting error overstated Ukraine aid

The Pentagon on Thursday revealed that it has overcounted the value of the military aid the United States has sent Ukraine by at least $3 billion.

The Wall Street Journal first reported on the mistake, in which the Defense Department overestimated the value of the missiles, vehicles, ammunition and other equipment it sent from U.S. stocks to Ukraine due to an accounting error.

Deputy Defense Press Secretary Sabrina Singh confirmed the overestimation to The Hill.

“During our regular oversight process of presidential drawdown packages, the Department discovered inconsistencies in equipment valuation for Ukraine,” Singh said in a statement, referring to the authority that allows the administration to pull directly from its military inventory.
