Trump signed the defense budget, providing for the response of "aggressive Russia"

45
US President Donald Trump signed the country's defense budget for the 2018-th fiscal year, which formally began on October 1, reports RIA News.




The delay in the adoption of the budget was due to the long coordination in Congress of the two versions of the document prepared by the Senate and the lower house. The final version was approved on November 16.

"The budget of 692 billion dollars, which is slightly more than requested by the US administration, involves the allocation of 4,6 billion to the initiative to support the allies in Europe, aimed at deterring Russia," - said in a publication.

The document explains this response to “Russian aggression.”

The law also extends a ban on cooperation with the Russian Ministry of Defense, provides for military assistance to Ukraine for $ 350 million and provides for the deployment of additional interceptor missiles on the west coast of the United States to protect against the threat from North Korea, for which $ 4,4 billion is allocated.

As American experts noted, Trump's plans to strengthen the armed forces will lead to an increase in defense spending in the next decade to a level above the record level.

For the period after 2018, the CBO (Office of Congressional Budget Office) determines that the objectives of the armed forces administration will lead to a steady increase in costs, so that by 2027, the base budget (in 2018 dollars of the year) will reach 688 billions of dollars, more than 20 % more than the maximum costs in 1980's,
the report says.

According to the document, there are several factors contributing to increased costs. Among them are “appeals to increase the number of armed forces to 1,2 million by 2027, plans to increase the number of warships from 279 to 355, the number of Air Force fighter units from 55 to 60, and the likely increase in the number of marines”.

              Yes, Trumpampam and his comrades have done a lot of things and have said. He would not be concerned about Russian influence, but with the statement of Mr. Stephen Hawking (by the way a very respected scientist with disabilities in the world) who would not talk in vain.

              What is your opinion on this? That's where the United States could invest if wrappers were printed - there’s nothing to do with it.

      So, this is - Who is the aggressor?
      How to understand that the "aggressor" has military expenditures several times less than the peacekeeper and the seeder of democracy?
      And, probably, there is no article in the military budget of the Russian Federation on containing aggression of the USA and NATO ??
      In 2018, spending on the national defense of Russia will amount to more than 2,77 trillion rubles, the budget will be 100 billion less than this year.
      Only numbers

      The budget allocation for the National Defense section in 2018 will amount to 2 million rubles,
      in 2019 - 2 million rubles and
      in 2020 - 2 807 994,3 million rubles.
      In relation to the GDP of the corresponding year, the share of expenditures of the National Defense section will be
      2017 percent in 3,1,
      2018 percent in 2,8,
      2019 percent in 2,7 and
      in 2020 - 2,5 percent.

        The level of salaries differs significantly. The United States has a contract army with high salaries for soldiers and officers.
        Plus - pensions to officers. This is a large part of their budget.

        4,6 billion - this is less than half the cost of the Patriots for Poland with 16 launchers and 200 missiles.
        It gradually dawns on the EU that states can start a war at her home. Perhaps that is why they want to create their own States. hi

This is heard everywhere about the “Russian threat”, in the Baltic cows stopped giving milk, the Poles massively rushed to the shooting range to shoot, Ukrainians have been “really” fighting Russia for three years, which Europe has already bothered with this, and they are only 4,6 billion.

      The fact that the United States trumpets the whole world about the “Russian threat” does not at all mean its real existence. And the amount allocated to contain Russia (less than 1% of the budget) is proof of this.

    So it seems to be, according to Trump's earlier voiced statements, the DPRK should already be eliminated from day to day. fellow And suddenly, they decided to chip in to build a defense against it. So North Korea will live a long time ?! sad
