U.S Aid to Ukraine Soars Past $26 Billion as Economy Tanks Under Biden

The total amount of military aid provided to Kyiv from the United States since Russia invaded last February has soared past $26 billion, according to reports.

As The Daily Fetched reported last week, Antony Blinken announced a further $2.5 billion military aid for Ukraine.

Besides the $2.5 billion for Ukraine, congress already awarded $45 billion to the country in the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill, which was signed into law in December 2022.

The newest package, valued at up to $2.5 billion, includes 90 Stryker armored personnel carriers and 59 Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles.

The packages are designed to meet Ukraine’s upcoming needs, so the contents of them vary over the course of the war.

As The Washington Examiner reported:

The 109 Bradleys and 90 Strykers are all the United States has provided since the war began, though the U.S. also provided over 1,700 high mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicles, 300 M113 Armored Personnel Carriers, over a hundred light tactical vehicles, 250 M1117 Armored Security Vehicles, and 580 Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicles, according to a Pentagon factsheet.

In the fall of 2022, Russia began targeting Ukraine’s energy infrastructure with Iranian drones that proved very effective. That campaign carried on for months but has lessened recently. To combat it, the U.S. provided Ukraine with a Patriot missile defense system, which Ukrainian service members are currently being trained on, eight NASAMS, missiles for the HAWK air defense systems, RIM-7 missiles for air defense, and 12 Avenger air defense systems.

The U.S. has also provided Ukraine with more than 1,600 Stinger anti-aircraft systems, over 8,500 Javelin air-armor systems, more than 50,000 other anti-armor systems and munitions, and over 700 tactical unmanned aerial vehicles. Thirty-eight High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems and ammunition have also proven vital to helping Ukraine defend and take back its territory. The list goes on and on, including more than 350 generators, medical supplies, cold weather gear, and much more.

Despite the billions of dollars in aid Ukraine has already received, it is still asking for more.

“The war started by Russia does not allow delays, and I can thank you hundreds of times, and it will be absolutely just in fear given all that we have already done, but hundreds of thank you are not hundreds of tanks,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Friday.

The U.S did not include its Abrams tanks in its most recent package, while Germany didn’t include its Leopard tanks.

German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius told reporters, “We all cannot say today when a decision will be made and what that decision will be on Leopard tanks.”

Ukraine has repeatedly sought long-range missile systems, but the U.S. has not incldued Army Tactical Missile Systems.

The undersecretary of defense for policy, Colin Kahl, told reporters last Wednesday that the Pentagon’s judgment “to date has been that the juice isn’t really worth the squeeze” when it comes to giving Ukraine ATACMSs.

He said it remains U.S. policy not to enable strikes within Russia’s border over concerns about how Russia would respond.

He added that it is U.S. policy not to enable strikes within Russia’s border due to concerns about how Russia would respond.

This act of generosity via the backs of the American people, has got to be continued because it is an enormous investment. In what? no one seems to be clear aside from the rejuvenated cold war jargon. We see it differently but who is listening?

Wasn’t it past 26 billion with the first ‘installment’? I seem to remember that being in the forties.

People who flunk their way down to ‘journalism’ generally can’t count. Expect their numbers to be way off. Trust whatever they report at your own discretion.

Conservatives seem to be easily groomed to become appeasers and communist sympathizers ready to support a b****y creep like Putin. Thank God they’re no match for the soy boys!
