Pentagon accounting error overvalued Ukraine aid by $3 billion – sources

The Pentagon overvalued U.S. equipment it sent to Ukraine by around $3 billion, a Senate aide and a defense official said on Thursday, an error that opens up the possibility of more weapons being sent to Kyiv for its defense against Russian forces.

Two senior defense officials said on Thursday, the error was the result assigning a higher than warranted value on weaponry that was taken from U.S. stocks and then shipped to Ukraine.
