"In the interests of supporting the defense of Ukraine": The US Senate proposed to provide Kiev with lethal weapons

The United States intends to pass a new law providing for the provision of military assistance to Ukraine, including the supply of lethal weapons... The corresponding bill was presented by a group of senators, according to the official website of the US Congress.


A new bill on a partnership with Ukraine in the field of security, prepared by a cross-party group of senators, provides support for Kiev over the next five years with the allocation of funding and the supply of lethal weapons.

In the interest of supporting Ukraine's defense and advancing American values ​​and foreign policy priorities, I proudly join the renewal of the Ukraine Security Partnership Act, a long-term security assistance package that demonstrates our bipartisan commitment to a secure Ukraine.

- said one of the authors of the law, Senator Bob Menendez.

According to Senator Chris Murphy, the bill should show, using the example of Ukraine, the ability of the United States to support "fragile democracies", as well as help Kiev defend against "Russian aggression."

The document provides for the creation of a joint working group on Ukraine in the State Department with European partners, as well as the appointment of a US special envoy to participate in the Normandy format talks.

In addition, the law allows the supply of lethal weapons to Ukraine and the annual allocation of $ 304 million, of which $ 4 million is allocated for the education and training of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

      to show on the example of Ukraine the ability of the United States to support "fragile democracies", and also help Kiev to defend itself against "Russian aggression."

          Here are just the templates they have designed for an inch thread, and the left one.
          It is necessary to the extent not to have the brains to supply the fascist army in the center of Europe with modern weapons, to put it on the Russian borders under the enemy NATO flag and for 15 years already incite the horses to the war with Russia, the horses, even in the text of the anthem having foreign conquests of the Kuban Sana and Don? Skakuasov, even in their dreams, seeing how they are marching along Red Square!
          But to give the Skakuas who hate Russia modern weapons means to encourage the Skakuas to attack Russia.
          No common sense will allow any of Ukraine's neighbors to tolerate this unrequitedly, which means that there will be no less minced meat coming out than in Ilovaiskaya together with Debaltseve, but the fascist ideology in general will show its undead and WILL be destroyed without being taken prisoner.

      After the Democrats and Biden crossed the Rubicon with personal attacks on the President of the Russian Federation and a demonstrative refusal to disavow offensive statements, and even with the threat of introducing more and more new sanctions for staged results of allegedly hostile actions of the Russian Federation, there is nothing to be surprised at.
      On the contrary. According to the logic of spiral conflictological development, more decisive actions by the United States in relation to the Russian Federation and China will follow. And Ukraine as a point of tension will be used to the limit. In Syria, they will also do everything to make the barmaley and the Turks more and more actively attack our base, as well as the positions of the Syrian troops.
      In response to this, it is necessary to proactively intensify operations to destroy contingents concentrating for attacks. Expand logistical and intelligence assistance to Assad. And the LDNR qualitatively and quantitatively equip all possible military equipment and weapons in order to even partially prevent the successful attacks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the militia positions, and in some places allow the concentration of strike groups for a counteroffensive on the operational directions of the LDNR corps Luhansk-Kharkiv-Kiev and Donetsk-Dnepropetrovsk-Uman with so that after the defeat of the Armed Forces groupings on the line of contact, having entered the operational space, begin to eliminate the remnants of the Armed Forces of Ukraine as units and groupings, but no longer have a single command and control and coordination.
      The Russian Federation could demonstratively concentrate groups of troops near the border with Ukraine in order to pull off units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from the LPNR on the lines: Armyansk-Perekop and Predmostnoye; Taganrog-Kuibyshevo.
      And also: Boguchar-Rossosh; Alekseevka-Novy Oskol, as well as in the northeastern direction.
      Troops contingents in areas that do not cover the border with the LPNR will have a quick effect in pulling back units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to cover threatened areas from the border with the Russian Federation.
      Immediately after the first large-scale provocation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, with an attempt at a decisive offensive or artillery preparation for it, to announce the recognition of the independence of the LPR and the readiness, by signing an agreement with these new states, to unilaterally introduce peacekeepers from the Russian Federation to protect the citizens of the Russian Federation living there.
      If NATO attempts and moves to bring troops into Ukraine, it will be necessary to launch offensives in the western direction with the annexation of the former territories of Ukraine to the Russian Federation with a possible quick exit of the RF Armed Forces units to the planned demarcation lines of a possible border with NATO states and troops with the construction of fortifications and lines of defense. Bring the Strategic Missile Forces to the highest readiness with a statement about it.
      Before all that has been described (of course, these are fantasies and reasoning), if the United States supplies the Ukrainian Armed Forces with heavy armored vehicles, modern offensive weapons, ensure the transfer of comparable weapons and military equipment to the LDNR troops for parity with the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

      In general, from now on, it will be enough to be ashamed of the means of defense against NATO and US threats! It is time to defend your interests more decisively and not in response to attacks, but in a preventive manner.

          Leave it as the capital of sovereign Little Russia, because if we take them all and all into Russia, then you and I will have the DUTY to pay ALL Ukraine's debts to EVERYONE that gave the horses TRILLION loans - this year they should be given to the IMF $ 10 billion, but there is nothing to give back, and they are in debt, like in silks - the Americans don’t give ANYONE and ANYTHING for nothing (except for a penny "military aid"!)!

            I can not agree.
            The annexation of some (not the entire territory. We definitely do not need the Western region, and we will not have time before the NATO (US) troops enter) regions of Ukraine, this is the annexation of the territories of the former neighboring state as a result of the war. And victory in it is not the same as the voluntary joining of this state to ours.
            Therefore, for the affairs and debts of the former regime and the Russophobic leadership of Ukraine, the Russian Federation should not bear any responsibility and obligations.
            Moreover, if we are forced into such a forceful scenario, then after it a new iron curtain will certainly instantly fall between us and the EU with the United States at its head. the EU countries will quickly get rid of us and will be very scared of us, all running away en masse under the US umbrella due to their well-established Russophobia and rotten hostile stereotypes about us.
            The time to stand on ceremony has passed. Diplomacy flows smoothly into decisive military action.
            Alas, I really do not want a war (not yet immediately against the United States and NATO, but only against Ukraine and other followers of Georgia's affairs in 2008), I really do not want losses and deaths of people, but WE ARE FORCED TO THIS. We are deliberately forced to react and we have nowhere to retreat, for sure. having given Ukraine for the deployment of NATO troops, the flight time of missiles to Moscow and other industrial and road nodes will be reduced to impossibility, and the pre-field in the future confrontation, oh, how we need it. And the speeches of Biden and his administration have already shown us everything: The ceremonies are over! Chatter about human rights and unfounded accusations has become chatter and it is already obvious that polite silence is no longer useful.
            Further, the US Democrats will surely and undeniably unleash battles against us and our "friends and allies" (who, in fact, are also still friends and allies, but this is the third thing), the time for chatter is gone!

            That's right. Signatures. There are no superfluous Russians. Moreover, by the end of 2020, we have decreased by 500 thousand people.
            The Armed Forces of Ukraine are apparently begging (and probably more of the National Battalions), so that the "vacationers" kick off their hooves ...
            Although, as in the joke:
            - the Armenian radio is asked how many of the 5 Russian battalions will reach Kiev;
            - Armenian radio, thinking, replied: 7 divisions ...
            So, I think in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, too, probably many are waiting for the signal of a rocket launcher ... everyone is tired of the mess ... and most importantly, the futility ...
            "In the units of the operational-tactical grouping" North "(Ukrainian Armed Forces. - Ed.), There is a massive refusal of militants to commit fire provocations for fear of opening return fire to suppress by the People's Militia of the LPR," he explained.
            Also, as Osadchy said, on Friday, soldiers of the Ukrainian 80th brigade refused to carry out work on equipping positions in the city of Happiness due to fear of being blown up by previously installed mines.
            Earlier, in the LPR office in the Joint Center for Control and Coordination of the Ceasefire Regime, RIA Novosti reported that the Ukrainian security forces have not fired on the territory of the republic since March 18.

The United States is in a hurry, and for them now the war in Donbass is their top priority. Delivery of lethal and other weapons to Ukraine will now begin.

    The United States, it seems, wants to transfer its war with Russia by the hands of the Ukrainians into a hot phase ... And what, the Slavs will kill the Slavs even more actively, Russia will spend its resources, and there are still a lot of reasons to throw sanctions. Although, now the reason for the sanctions is easily invented.

      Stripes can now send them a whole transport of old, but battle-worthy rust, but this can only mean "a magic pendel:" Attack, scoundrels! "

      Why what, but the Americans will not refuse to help Ukraine with arms.

      Only with the Ukrainian specifics - the IMF sets conditions by allocating tranches, the EU sets conditions, and now the Pentagon - "" The remaining $ 150 million in the funds of the Initiative to Support Ukraine in Security for FY2021 will be provided when the Ministry of Defense, together with the US Department of State, makes sure is that Ukraine has made sufficient progress on key defense reforms this year"- ie" "increasing openness and accountability in the defense industry" ....

        and the Department of Defense, together with the US Department of State, will ensure that Ukraine has made sufficient progress on key defense reforms this year "- that is," increasing openness and accountability in the defense industry. "

        Every year the same thing. Each tranche of the IMF is discussed the fight of the Ukrainian authorities with bribes, and bribes are only growing.

    It's simple - the climate in the states is changing rapidly, the energy infrastructure is not prepared, and so are the cities. It will be easier and cheaper for them to exterminate everyone in Ukraine and move closer to Siberia than to prepare their country for new climatic realities.
    Therefore, these locusts will climb with all their might, regardless of any treaties, moral norms

    Did you expect something different from the penguins?
    Systematic work continues to create hotbeds of tension near the borders of Russia with a subsequent slide into an armed conflict.
    There are more questions about the GDP, how Russia should react. How long will it be silently watching the pressure build up?
