US Military Aid to Ukraine Hits Over $43 Billion

On Tuesday, the Biden administration announced it is sending up to $400 million in additional military aid to Ukraine, which takes the total contribution to over $43 billion since the conflict began.

The new Pentagon aid package included a variety of munitions for advanced air defense systems and a number of small surveillance Hornet drones, according to The Associated Press.

As Breitbart reported:

The package includes an array of ammunition — ranging from missiles for the High-Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) and the National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (NASAMS) to Stingers and Javelins.

The weapons are being provided through presidential drawdown authority, allowing the Pentagon to quickly take items from its stocks and deliver them to Ukraine, often within days.

The U.S. is also sending howitzer artillery rounds and 32 Stryker armored vehicles, along with demolition equipment, mortars, Hydra-70 rockets and 28 million rounds of small arms ammunition.

The Hornets are tiny nano-drones that are used largely for intelligence gathering. Ukraine has also gotten them in the past from other Western allies.

Since February 2022, the White House has approved over $43 billion in military aid to Ukraine, as critics say the endless flow of U.S. taxpayer-funded contributions is unsustainable.

Overall the White House has approved more than $43 billion in military aid to Ukraine since Russia invaded in February 2022, according to AP’s estimates, even as critics sharpen their attacks at home and abroad on the seemingly endless flow of U.S. taxpayer-funded contributions.

The latest package comes as a Ukrainian drone reportedly struck an ammunition depot in Russian-annexed Crimea, while Russia accused Ukraine of launching a drone attack on Moscow.

Last week, Republican Senator Rand Paul warned that the US has run out of both “ammo” and “money” in the Ukraine war with Russia.

“From a fiscal conservative perspective, it makes no sense to borrow money from China to send it to Ukraine,” Paul said.

“It’s not like we’re sending them surplus funds. It’s like, ‘Oh, we have surplus ammo around.'”

“We’re actually out of ammo now; we’re out of money. And so, there’s no real sense in continuing to do this,” Rand Paul also warned of the Ukraine war.

As The Daily Fetched recently reported, Biden’s recent decision to send cluster bombs to Ukraine came before the president admitted, “We’ve run out of ammunition.”

“This war can go on forever,” Paul continued.

“I don’t think the Russians are ever leaving Crimea. I don’t think the Ukrainians have the might to push them out.”

“If the endpoint is Russia has to leave Crimea and all other parts they occupy of Ukraine, then the war goes on, it will be a war of attrition over many, many years, and the Ukrainian people are suffering horribly,” Paul further explained.
