The Pentagon says the US has pledged over $19 billion in arms for Ukraine since Russia invaded

Originally published on AntiWar

The Pentagon announced on Wednesday a new $400 million weapons package for Ukraine, marking the 26th drawdown of equipment from US military stockpiles for the Ukrainians.

The package includes heavy machine guns meant to counter drones, ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS), and munitions for National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile Systems (NASMS), an air defense system the US just began delivering to Ukraine.

According to the Pentagon, the package includes:

  • Additional munitions for NASMS
  • 150 heavy machine guns with thermal imagery sights to counter Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)
  • Additional ammunition for HIMARS
  • 200 precision-guided 155mm artillery rounds
  • 10,000 120mm mortar rounds
  • High-speed Anti-radiation missiles (HARMs)
  • 150 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs)
  • Over 100 light tactical vehicles
  • Over 20,000,000 rounds of small arms ammunition
  • Over 200 generators
  • Spare parts for 105mm Howitzers and other equipment

The $400 million is being sent to Ukraine through the Presidential Drawdown Authority (PDA), which allows President Biden to send arms straight from US military stockpiles. According to the Pentagon, the US has pledged over $19 billion in military equipment for Ukraine since Russia invaded. That includes arms shipped using the PDA and equipment the US has said it will purchase for Kyiv, which takes longer to deliver.

Aid for Ukraine is still being pulled from the previous package that was approved in September. So far, the US has authorized about $67 billion in spending on the war, and the White House is asking Congress to approve a new massive aid package worth $37.7 billion.

The Pentagon on Wednesday also released a fact sheet detailing all of the arms the US has committed to Ukraine. The Biden administration is still holding out on some of the longer-range weapons Kyiv seeks over concerns of escalation.

UN is a cheap US bitch

It’s time for Russia to be more proactive and hit the messenger. It means, as soon as the “package” (just to use a word from the headline) enters Ukro territory, pulverize it with all kinds of hypersonic precise strikes. And you know exactly when such weapons arrive, as you have intel all over Ukronazistan. So, there is no more excuses.

Russian strikes arent so accurate, and their missile supplies isnt unlimited. Sadly for you, theses weapons will likely reach Ukraine intact

Mini Tactical Hypersonic Nuke locked on Kiev

“💥As a result of high-precision weaponry strikes by the Russian Air Force against three temporary Polish mercenary units near Velikiye Hutora (Kharkov region), up to 200 militants have been destroyed.

◽️In addition, over a hundred mercenaries of the so-called Foreign Legion, as well as 1 tank, 2 armoured combat vehicles and 8 motor vehicles have been eliminated by Russian air force high-precision weapons near Seversk and Slovyansk (Donetsk People’s Republic).”

◽️In the past, we here in the SF forum coined the phrase “NATO will fight Russia until the last Ukrainian”. Some months later, everybody was using this phrase and even Tucker Carlson. Now I introduce a new phrase: “NATO will fight Russia until the last mercenary”.

Nothing will help Zelensky and GloboHomo. The air campaign over Ukraine underway is destroying Ukrainian energy and electrical infrastructure. General Surovikin will mop up the floor with Zelensky’s forces when his 380,000 reinforcements are fully ready and in place for the Final Offensive.

And after 1 km they run out of petrol, half suffering from frostbite and the other half being drunken and fighting among each other over a looted washing maschine.

Trust me no Winter offensive
