U.S. can't trace $62 million of military aid sent to Ukraine - watchdog --The Pentagon does not know whether defense items were "lost or destroyed," an investigation has found | 27 June 2024 | The U.S. Defense Department is unable to locate $62 million worth of weapons given to Ukraine, according to a report released on Wednesday. The conclusions were presented by the Pentagon inspector general after an assessment on whether the DoD is effectively monitoring defense items provided to the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The watchdog found that as of late November last year, a total $62.2 million in hardware designated for enhanced end-use monitoring (EEUM) was reported as missing. Among them are night vision devices, Javelin anti-tank missiles, and missile launch units. According to the report, the U.S. Office of Defense Cooperation (ODC) in Ukraine "cannot tell which of these items were lost and which were destroyed." The Ukrainian army has not yet provided clarification, it adds.
