US Congress approves military assistance to Ukraine

The United States will provide $ 2020 million in military assistance to Ukraine in fiscal year 250. The corresponding military assistance package was approved by the US Congress on June 11 in accordance with the recommendations of the Pentagon.


According to US media, the US Congress approved a package of military assistance to Ukraine in the amount of $ 250 million under the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative (USAI) program. The allocation of the entire amount depended on the reforms in the defense sector carried out in Ukraine, as required by American congressmen. In case of non-confirmation, Kiev would receive exactly half of the above amount. However, the US Department of Defense “witnessed” Ukraine’s progress in key reforms in the defense and anti-corruption field.

According to the document, the funds allocated to Ukraine will be directed at “the possibility of increasing defense capability in the maritime sphere”, airspace control, counter-battery control and the purchase of vehicles, medical equipment and radio communications. In addition, part of this assistance should go towards the purchase of “means to ensure cyber security and counter Russian cyber attacks and misinformation.”

As previously reported, the list of Washington’s military assistance to Ukraine for 2020 may include lethal weapons, which is not known for sure. Earlier, US lawmakers proposed transferring anti-ship missile control units, anti-ship missiles, and other means for air defense and coastal defense to the APU.

    250 million dollars
    Get the money and continue the civil war. Americans are not sorry for such a "noble" cause. Then the question is what do you open your mouth and yell that Russia is helping Donbass?

      Russia also has strange help .. You can really help the Donbass only by accepting it as part of Russia, and we are acting like the USA .. the only difference is that Russians are killing Russians ..

          The United States maintains an independent army, in any case pays salaries to senior officers and especially distinguished "heroes". That's the whole tale of the independence of the people of miraculous land ....

        Before becoming a part of Russia, the independence of Donbass from Ukraine should be recognized. And this will be done as soon as they try to launch a new attack on the Donbass. For this, the Minsk agreements were signed. Under these agreements, Russia is the guarantor of their compliance. And in the event of the resumption of a full-scale war, not only has the right, but MUST intervene.

          The fact that the Russian Federation is the guarantor of the Minsk agreements does not mean that it will intervene if they fail. The Budapest Memorandum is fresh in mind.

      You really do not see the difference? If we take the ethical part "out of brackets", then the bottom line is that the United States helps the state of Ukraine and its "legitimate" government (recognized by the Russian Federation) within the framework of international agreements on LEGAL basis. The Russian Federation helps illegal pseudo-state formations, outside state agreements, out of sly support for illegal, not recognized by anyone in the world "republics." This is how it looks from the point of view of international law, regardless of whether someone likes it or not request .

        On exactly the same LEGAL grounds, Russia is a guarantor of compliance with the Minsk agreements.

        The fact that the word "legitimate" was put in quotation marks is true, because everything, ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING, that happened after the seizure of power in Ukraine after 2014 is not legal, because it was carried out as a result of the ANTI-CONSTITUTIONAL coup supported by the USA. In this case, the United States acts as accomplices of the junta in the destruction of the Ukrainian statehood and the Ukrainian people. Why mattresses, positioning themselves as the world's main champions of the rule of law, supported the coup in Kiev, but did not support the referendum in the LPR. If you are referring to international law, then cite an extract according to which illegal seizure of power is considered a democratic procedure.

          What happened in Ukraine in 2014 has a legal basis. At a minimum, the government elected in Ukraine is recognized in the Russian Federation as legal.

      Pouring 250 lyam to Ukraine, they cool down Russia, the same engines for the space aviation fleet, all this must be repaired in the Russian Federation, which means that the test benches will be spent on development again, and even building an ordinary dry dock costs more than 25 lyam. This is a financial exhaustion policy that consumes resources.

    the possibility of increasing defense capabilities in the maritime sphere ", airspace control, counter-battery warfare and the purchase of vehicles, medical equipment and radio communications. In addition, part of this assistance should go to the purchase of" cyber security and countering Russian cyber attacks and disinformation. "

    And all this is only $ 250 million?
    Rather, this money will go to support the right people of the regime.

    While the printing press is working, and the mongrels are trying to distract their geopolitical adversary (Russia) from resolving their issues, yes, please eat
    "means of ensuring cyber security and countering Russian cyber attacks and disinformation."

    But, the real science is history, all the time it will beat Svidomo horses, in the tinsel, with its reminder and obligatory repetition with new characters (nationalities):
    From the memorandum of the Public Association of the NKVD STF to the UOO NKVD of the USSR
    “On the discipline and moral and political condition of the enemy armies”
    31th of October 1942

    ... The attitude of the Germans towards their Romanian allies is mocking.
    Romanians, Hungarians, Italians, and people of other nationalities who are taking part in the war can’t even speak - every “true German” considers himself a natural master of these peoples and despises them.

    One of the prisoners of war said that in the summer of this year the Germans, who came to bathe, drove out of the river who did not even have time to wash off the soap of the Romanian soldiers. When placed in settlements, the Germans stop in the best huts for 2 to 3 soldiers, and the Romanians are driven to the company in one yard ...

    By the way, also a fact, in Odessa, the German commandant posted an announcement that seven hostages would be shot for a dead German soldier, five for a German shepherd, and three for a Romanian.
    And, given that the Americans consider themselves an exceptional nation on a global scale ... what ... you will not envy proud Sumerians crying

      "Half of this money will quickly" dry out "in someone's pockets."

      Most likely there is not so much (who will give them the flow), but part of the money will not be for the intended use, such as equipping the warehouse with video surveillance, and if it’s some Ukrainians in key positions, the Americans will help to steal and document everything so that later they could be used on a short leash.

      And so if you look at what was highlighted:

      Armored cars - they will sell some old stuff.

      Cyber ​​security equipment - Ukrainians will be put on Facebook to engage in propaganda, they will provide a penny with laptops, Ukraine will pay salaries.

      Equipping the Navy - well, it’s clear that some kind of provocation would stir up the sea, the seizure of civilian vessels, etc.

      Counter battery armament, an amer needs blood to flow in the Donbass. The shelling is just what happens every day.

      Not so much money, but just what would have varied shit.
