Western arms deliveries to Ukraine are a complex step-by-step process. Something began to arrive at once: compact things like MANPADs, anti-tank weapons, and ammunition for Soviet systems. The next step was the actual Soviet systems, assembled in Eastern Europe and other places. The next step was the supply of Western equipment at the level of artillery pieces, light armored vehicles, etc., something that can be mastered relatively quickly by Soviet-trained specialists.
In Washington, the Senate was forced to postpone final passage of a $40 billion Ukraine aid package U.S. Senator Rand Paul wants special controls on money to prevent embezzlement and fraud. He proposed an amendment to appoint a special inspector general to oversee the spending of funds allocated to Ukraine.
“You don’t have to throw away all the $40 billion without any oversight. And having a special inspector general, as was the case in Afghanistan, only some of the money was stolen, at least this makes thieves think twice before stealing the money,” Rand Paul said.
Senators Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell demanded that all 100 senators agree to a vote on the nearly $40 billion aid bill for Ukraine. Rand Paul countered.
“This is the largest U.S. military aid in two decades. The amount will exceed the defense spending of some countries. We will have to borrow money from China,” Paul added.
Democratic House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer today openly admitted that the U.S. is at war with Russia, and therefore in a “time of war” Republicans should not criticize Biden. These words can be considered confirmation that the Ukrainian conflict is more multifaceted. Earlier, U.S. President Joe Biden said that not a single U.S. soldier in NATO would go to Ukraine because he did not want to start World War III. However, U.S. politicians have different views on the conflict in Ukraine.
Meanwhile, on the Ukrainian frontlines, the AFU have started using US-made M-777s in Kharkiv Region. The U.S. is expected to supply Kyiv with 90 such 155-mm howitzers.
The photo shows American M113 APCs of the AFU on their way to the front. The vehicles were developed in the late 1950s in the United States. The M113 APC has not been produced since 2007 and has been gradually replaced by more modern vehicles in the US Army.
On May 11, Washington confirmed that weapons had gone to Ukraine before the start of the special operation. The administration of U.S. President Joe Biden had been supplying weapons long before the Russian involvement. The first billion dollars the president allocated for Ukraine did include assistance with lethal weapons. The United States, Canada, Britain, and other allies helped prepare the Ukrainians, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said.
The U.S. help on such an unprecedented scale is not due to any “love” for Ukraine or even support for its economy. Its purpose is to continue the proxy war against Russia, the desire to inflict a heavy defeat on the Russian Federation and to limit its economic development and influence in the world. This goal is quite logically justified by the current geopolitical realities.

THE COLD WAR JUST GOT HOT
The truth has now become obvious. The cold war never ended. It’s time to pull out the nukes.
Just remember, one nuclear strike, on one nuclear power facility will atomize over a billion curries of nuclear waste and risk the detonation of up to 50 tons of fissionable material in each cooling pond. It’s entirely possible that this act is a mass extinction event.
Something to cheer you up. Ukrop 72nd brigade deserters/moral:
The problem is that US is a failed state banana republic wit millions of hapless “Americans” is destitute poverty and wasting billions of a corrupt Jew regime in Russian Ukraine is not looking very viable even to the brainwashed redneck living in a trailer park who can’t even afford baby formula for their brats while Zionist Jews push more lost wars. There is simply no way, a battered corrupt Jew infested Ukraine can withstand Russian power.
Even the US Congress is having second thoughts and withholding the $40 billion insane package as Ukraine and its corrupt Jew regime are on the ropes and as I and other realist analysts had written from the begging of Operation Z, Russia will prevail as it adjusts its tactics and strategic goals. Russia is simply too big with a mega-strategic mass, not to obliterate the corrupt Zelensky Jew clown regime that is being used as cannon fodder by wobbly NATO criminals.
“The US has only weak allies”. Zion are leeches and they aren’t yanquis’ allies. Wahhabis can’t even run their own “country”. Neo-Nazis in Ukraine getting fuk to the point the US and EU have to send billions each week at this point. Taiwan is part of China – The End.
The US “enemies” are Russia, which is winning with a small army over the whole of Ukraine and NATO. China is taking the US’s place as a world power. Iran is showing its middle finger to yanquis 24/7.
Why they are so fuking stupid. You know it is bad as they are just doing anything to be seen as the world power, and they are failing 24/7 everywhere. At this point, we might head to WW again.
Iran is nowhere as strong as Russia, China or India.
You leak brain cells still, or I should say you act like rtded donkey. Or ofc you might be a stupid young lad. “The US “enemies” are” / “Iran is showing its middle finger to yanquis 24/7”.
You don’t understand and I don’t care to explain it to rtded fuk that can’t read between lines.
What bull are you talking? Iran is as strong as Spain so what?
I get English is not your first language – but is not that hard to understand what I said.
Ask yourself, did I mention anything about Iran’s “power”? No. You did, not me. Why did you start talking about those countries’ military power – I don’t know (I’m guessing, you are talking about their military power here).
All I said was, The US “enemies” are Russia, China, and Iran. Yet, The US hasn’t achieved anything against those countries.
Read what people said as it is, don’t makeup shit in your head. Okay, rtded clown.
You said that Iran is showing their middle finger to the US. Iran is not that strong to contain the US. All they need to do is to become a Chinese puppet.
I’m talking to a child, I going to stop “””arguing””” with you. Whatever you say kiddo, just go back and suck of Zion. I tell you what, don’t make shit up inside your head.
Again the ad hominem attacks
“ad hominem”? Just don’t use words you don’t know the meaning of kiddo. You sound like a clown.
You are struggling like a little girl.
more amerikant stupidity—immoral idiots accelerate the demise of the crumbling empire
Oh dear that M-777 is a static weapon ie. a sitting duck with a heat signature.
It was intended to kill peasants in countries that had no modern heavy weapons, air forces, radars, etc.
Yes, let’s have an inspector General, to steal the funds correctly
Exactly right and cover it all up thoroughly.
“Finnish President Sauli Niinistö reportedly plans to call his Russian counterpart, ”
i do not going to answer i will hurt you …
If non nukes were fired into another country and it detonated nukes, is that still called a nuclear strike or would it be called striking a nuke?
The Senate is full of enemies of the people. All serving a foreign Autocrat. “the greatest threats to American democracy will come from Pope’s and Prince’s”George Washington lamented privately And obviously all agents of Pope’s and Prince’s.
Whatever modern and hi-tech weapons the neo-nazis are receiving from everyone, still I have not seen anything that can stop onyx cruise missiles that is coming to them on daily basis. Russia still has control over Ukrainian air space.
I pray to God everyday that someone kills Joe Biden and his entire cabinet with a truck bomb.
That’s very specific of you. Doesn’t leave many choices Why not a good old round of cups of Borgia?
Those M777’s are junk. Retired U.S. Marine Scott Ritter pointed out how they do not hold up to the rigors of war. They are inferior the previous M198 in U.S. Army service. To me, they are absolute junk, just like the F-35. Over priced, “lightweight” crap that doesn’t hold up. And there is no way the Ukrainians will be able to fix them.
Since there’s already an overwhelming majority of the vote, Biden will just send it anyway through executive order. It makes no difference. The US political system has plenty of ways to circumvent the problem when a politician blocks it for political posturing.
Rand Paul the only sane politician in the US. The only one who dared to stand against dr Fraudici and now this. Absolute legend!
I immensely respected his father.
fun math problems for Eurotards (attention sheltered triggered negro slave americans of 2020’s, this includes racist math) Nancy gives Volodymyr 30Billion shekels Volodymyr begs for more Nancy gives him 40 Billion shekels more Volodymyr admits he has only spent 8.5 billion shekels overall since the first 30 Billions How many billions are left for Volodymyr to steal after the “Big guy” gets his cut? extra credit – How many houses could BLM buy in Brentwood with 70 billions shekels?
It funny that US get Ukraine’s aid money will have to borrow from China.
