US Congress may increase military assistance to Ukraine, but cut back on Georgia

The United States may increase military assistance to Ukraine by $ 2021 million in fiscal year 25. This proposal was made by the appropriation committee of the US House of Representatives, the draft military budget says.


According to representatives of the committee, next year Ukraine needs to allocate 275 million dollars, which is 25 million more than in 2020. Earlier it was reported that in 2021, military assistance to Kiev was expected in the region of $ 250 million. However, the issue of increasing the amount of military assistance has not yet been finally resolved. Before it is signed by the President of the United States, the document has to go through a very complicated approval process.

It is proposed to spend the increased amount on training the personnel of the Ukrainian army, providing weapons, logistic support, intelligence support to the military and the "national security forces" of Ukraine. The Pentagon, which characterizes Ukraine as "a key US partner at the forefront of strategic competition with Russia," advocates increased military assistance.

If news If Ukraine is likely to increase military assistance, it will delight Ukraine, the next one, which also came from the US Congress, can greatly upset another US partner - Georgia. The thing is that the Congress proposed to cut back assistance to Tbilisi, and immediately by 15%.

The US military budget for 2021 includes Georgia’s military assistance in the amount of 132 million dollars. However, Congress believes that it should be cut back, as Tbilisi does not comply with all US instructions. But this amount can be left unchanged if the US State Department provides evidence of the effective policy of the Georgian government "to strengthen democratic institutions and the fight against corruption, as well as protecting foreign investors."

    Once again, the Hammers decided to give us intelligence equipment, but they are embarrassed to do it directly - again, they will have to pick up trophies.

        Georgia has not completely departed from 2008 and has not yet floundered, which means there is no point in betting on it.

              Yeah. This is to "give a signal" is unknown what.

              And "military aid" is currently being allocated precisely in order to cover up corruption cases of Biden and his son.

                And the recruitment of the US military command of the Russian language, as well as the development of combat techniques in urban settings, is of course also to cover up Biden’s affairs. As well as the deployment of missile defense systems in Europe.

                  No.
                  This is in order to "restrain Russia." Americans do not abandon attempts to arrange an "arms race-2"

                  However, the American military "aid" to Ukraine from the Democratic-led Congress in its purest form is a bribe for silence. For I remind you for those who forgot: Trump was still accused of the fact that he stipulates the allocation of such assistance by an investigation on the Biden art in Ukraine.

                    I remind you for those who don’t remember, the deployment of missile defense in Europe, the transfer of troops to the borders of Russia, the sharp increase in the number of reconnaissance flights along the borders of Russia, the incitement of hatred towards Russia and the Russians have been going on for a long time. It began before Trump, and with it he only intensifies and associating this only with the upcoming elections is the height of naivety.

        Rodents have already tried on themselves how to really fight with the Russian Armed Forces, even if not in the best of times for the Russian army, and as long as the memories are fresh, they do not burn with desire. They go around with a blindfold and the inscription "- 20%" quietly rejoicing that not more. And the Svidomo people from across the ocean sing the old Georgian song that they are "the strongest and most invincible." Fools from the "non-square" hanging their ears joyfully listen to the sweet overseas voice, not bothering their wretched brain with thoughts of consequences.

      Actually, this is help to the American military-industrial complex. They will receive the money, and not the public, which is in line for a freebie.
      As far as I know, only Israelis are given into their hands, but they are also obliged to spend money in the USA.

    Everything as usual. First, they give out a loan, then they buy the goods from him. And all this is called that they helped. Only the question arises, to whom did they render? Mostly imagined.

    characterizes Ukraine as "a key US partner at the forefront of strategic competition with Russia."
    But Georgia conquered in 2008, so it is possible to cut back. Ukraine will retake according to the same scenario and it will no longer need help. All "partners" of the United States, whom they fed, armed, trained as a result, were defeated, or scattered like cockroaches (the so-called "moderate opposition" in Syria).

      I never heard that these data were voiced. Putin then said that there for the Hammers are such that the Americans really want to return them? We know that there is reconnaissance equipment. But this is our legitimate trophy. Maybe not verbatim, but something like that put it. And that’s all. I did not hear anything more on this topic.

    The increased amount is proposed to be spent on training personnel of the Ukrainian army (salary of instructors from the USA and other stationery), the provision of weapons (manufacturers may not pay a little tax), logistic support (here it is clear - we will bring it at reasonable prices), intelligence support to the military and the "national security forces" of Ukraine ( inexpensive xerim pictures).
    I’m interested in - but what about the lads?
    Or would they send at least a dozen diviners at West Point to study?
