New Military Aid From The U.S. To Ukraine Approved

Click to see full-size image

The United States continues to provide material and technical support to Ukraine. On May 19, 2022, the U.S. Department of Defense announced that the U.S. President had approved another $100 billion military aid package for Ukraine. However, yesterday the U.S. Senate approved $40 billion so far. Of this amount, $19.7 billion will go to arm the AFU, $8.8 billion for economic recovery, and $4.35 billion for food and various humanitarian issues.

It may be noted that this is already the tenth American package of military assistance to Ukraine since August 2021. The total amount of American military aid officially allocated to Kyiv since the beginning of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine has now reached $3.9 billion, and since March 2021 – about $4.6 billion. This is only the official part, also these figures do not take into account the unofficial part of the expenses and the expenses that went into the pockets of companies that are involved in the production of weapons.

The U.S. Department of Defense reported that the newly approved $100 billion military aid package includes supplies intended “to meet Ukraine’s critical needs during the current hostilities as Russian forces continue their offensive in eastern Ukraine.

When it comes to total Western aid to Ukraine, the amount will exceed $100 billion. This is approximately 100% of Ukraine’s entire economy. From January to May 2022, 36 Western countries donated $65.5 billion in aid to Ukraine: $34.7 billion for arms, $18.5 billion for the economy, and $12.5 billion for humanitarian purposes. Countries and organizations donated different amounts of money:

  • U.S. – $43 billion,
  • Britain – $4.8 billion,
  • The European Commission – $4.1 billion,
  • Poland – $2.6 billion,
  • Germany, $2.35 billion,
  • France – $2.1 billion,
  • Canada – $2 billion,
  • Italy – $0.48 billion,
  • Norway, $0.32 billion,
  • Sweden and Japan $0.29 billion each.

The largest part of the latest U.S. aid package is armaments. The announced delivery will include 18 M777 towed 155 mm howitzers and 18 prime movers for them, three AN/TPQ-36 artillery position detection radar stations, field equipment, and spare parts.

Earlier in April and early May, in previous aid packages, the United States had already provided Ukraine with a variety of equipment. The previous deliveries included 90 M777 155mm/39 howitzers, 72 Oshkosh FMTV (Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles) M1083 prime movers for them, and 209 thousand artillery shells for them. Now the total number of howitzers M777 and 90 Oshkosh FMTV M1083 prime movers to be transferred by the US to the Ukrainian side will reach 108. It is also said to be working on providing Ukraine with long-range anti-ship missiles.

This time the U.S. Senate and the president of the U.S. decided on the financing of Ukraine rather quickly. Although the project, which was earlier approved in the U.S. to provide 40 billion dollars in military aid to Ukraine, was discussed for a very long time and caused lively discussions in the Senate. Based on this, U.S. politicians are increasingly starting to agree that Ukraine needs military aid. Most likely, future U.S. financial projects for Ukraine will no longer take time and will be accepted even faster.

The Pentagon confirmed the information about the provision of military assistance and published a list of the equipment to be provided. The shipment of these weapons will be made soon. The new U.S. military aid package to Ukraine includes:

  • 36 counter-battery radars.
  • 18 155mm howitzers.
  • 18 tactical vehicles.

U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has said that Ukraine will soon be provided with additional assistance. According to Blinken, the United States will provide $215 million in food aid. In turn, representatives of the EU, the U.S., and Canada say they will help Ukraine remove tens of millions of tons of grain from its territory.

Most of the agricultural products are exported through the sea. In this light, the U.S. is considering supplying Ukraine with advanced Harpoon and NSM anti-ship missile systems to fight the Russian Navy’s Black Sea Fleet. The U.S. White House, according to some officials, is working on supplying modern anti-ship missiles to the Ukrainian armed forces to help overcome the Russian naval blockade, amid fears that more powerful weapons, which can sink Russian warships, will only escalate the confrontation.

Therefore, this issue has two sides: on the one hand, Ukraine does not want to provoke Russia to increase its military might in the Black Sea, and on the other hand, it needs to restore grain supplies. Ukraine has made no secret of its need for more advanced American capabilities, in addition to the artillery pieces, Javelin and Stinger missiles, and other weapons it receives. Among other things, Kyiv’s wish list includes missiles that could push the Russian Navy away from Ukrainian Black Sea ports, thereby allowing it to resume shipments of grain and other agricultural products for delivery around the world.

U.S. military assistance to Ukraine would prolong the conflict indefinitely in the long run. However, it remains to be seen when Western countries will feel the lack of money and begin to refuse further aid to Ukraine.

I guess Russia should thank the U.S in advance for free military equipment

Russia needs to raze Kiev as a message since US, Zionist and NATO puppets agenda is a non-stop war until Russia is destroyed. So far Russia has been fighting with velvet gloves and that approach only emboldens the US warmongers who are using Ukraine as a cannon fodder.

G2 man

The US and its NATO puppets have poured in more weaponry and funds than the entire defence budget of Russia, China and India combined. This is no longer a hybrid war against Russia, but a full-scale aggressive assault using Ukrainians as the basic expendable cannon fodder in the ultimate US goal of dismembering Russia and gaining control over its immense resources. There are over 8 nations with soldiers and mercenaries fighting against Russia ranging from IDF, US, UK, Canada, Poland, Germany and France. However, despite this massive infusion of weaponry and manpower, the original Ukrainian military of 200,000 NATO combat trained, Russia has neutralized over 40,000 and taken another 12,000 prisoners. The Ukrainian military has been unable to launch a single “counter-attack” so far despite constant pressure by their NATO masters to stage a propaganda offensive.

With a $40 billion plan, the US and its Jew masters are setting it up for an expensive failure in Ukraine. Every rational Pole knows that Ukraine is an artificial country and parts of it belong to Poland and rest is Russian. We had huge massacres on ethnic lines just 75 years ago with Bandera Nazis killing Poles and burning villages.

Caesar

“Every rational Pole knows that Ukraine is an artificial country and parts of it belong to Poland and rest is Russian.” => There you are, an easy, cheap and practical solution to the problem. (Perhaps a bit of it to Hungary as well just to keep Viktor Orbán’s mouth shut!)😊

I don’t understand your complains, 5$ per gallon, that’s almost half the price in comparison to Europe.

$10 will be the new norm in the deadbeat US and the impact will be worse as US has move poverty per capita than India and no social security umbrella unlike Europe. US is being impoverished by Jew warmongering.

If you read that you’d think we were talking about some corrupt South American dictatorship shithole wouldn’t you?

Look forward to $10 a gallon petrol as the Jews siphon every drop of deadbeat US blood and money for their agenda. The petrol stations in California and NY are already programming their pumps for $10 a gallon prices.

A national gas station chain is reprogramming its pumps in Washington state, California and New York to accommodate the possibility of $10-a-gallon gasoline

All this money is not helping the Ukis much:

Update – There is a growing risk that #Russian forces around Popasna are gaining momentum against #Ukrainian defenders in the area. Today #Russia captured Nova Kamyanka, Stryapivka, Volodymyrivka, Trypillya & Druzhba to the W and Troitske to the S of the city.

These past seven weeks have been the longest down-streak for US markets since 2001, Biden needs to publicly apologize to the Russian people and beg them to lend the US some economists. I’m not sure if American leadership of both parties is in complete denial or criminally negligent in their handling of the issues facing the economy. They need to stop aiming for a soft landing and implement Volcker solutions right now, ~20% interest rates no matter the consequences. Of course they have been kicking the can down the road with elections coming up though. I read the other day that some regions of America are even having trouble sourcing baby formula, what a mess.

I know, my rrsp tanked 10% this quarter.

The Crunge

I don’t think interest rate raising is the best way to lower inflation. Buying oil from Iran and Russia would be more helpful. Not to mention fertilizer and wheat from the Russkies as well. I’d guess supply demand has more influence on price then this money supply stuff.

ATLGA

I agree that those things would also help, my remaining family ranches in rural Montana and have been telling me the absurd diesel and fertilizer prices. US could also stop trying to overthrow the people of Venezuela’s government and import oil from a closer source. My thoughts on raising the interest rates have more to do with all the free stimulus money injected with COVID measures. The sanctions and their blowback are just compounding on those mistakes.

I urge all Ukrainian military men to hand weapons over to Russia as soon as they get a chance to surrender. It’s better to be alive in a Russian POW camp then fighting for a Jew.

It takes very long time to deliver this plus training, maintenance, on going ammunition supply etc !!

The Jew war on Russia is having a disastrous impact in the deadbeat US economy directly, the defeat in Afghanistan was mostly far away and hidden from prying eyes. The poverty, crime, gun violence and mass homelessness in the mean streets of America simply now can not be hidden. Like Rome, US is burning while a senile 80 year old in diapers is sending billions to a lost Nazi cause in Russian Ukraine.

Waste no time anytime, just destroy Ukraine’s economy, bomb paddy field, grain field, make sure some chemical dispersed from the air such that large piece of land become not suitable for farming for the long term,

bomb financial center, major infrastructure to support the economy, bomb electricity exchange, highways, bomb essential commercial district

block sea export venue for Ukraine goods and services.

Drag on this tactic, and see how long the world’s number one evil-doer US can support.

I am also French, Greece also took a lot from us, more than 70 euros per French and that did not help the country in any way, all the money was in the pockets of the government and the rich France is unable to find 200 million for our 6,000 bridges which need emergency repairs but finds billions for Ukraine and tens of billions for foreigners

Biden, Pelosi, Hillary, Austin, Miley, state dept. and all the other un Americans politicians who are for Ukraine are not doing this for the freedom of nor the defense of and NOT with the will of the American people. All the money Biden and gang are stealing from Americans and sending. Its to keep the deep state prop up and operational, for bribery, kick backs and pay outs. All they want is to stop Putin from exposing them and what really going on in Ukraine. To keep people eyes off the fake pandemic and the deadly to human’s vaccines they trying to force everyone to get and the American’s people from the “2000 Mules” movie showing how stolen election Biden and gang won 2020.
