The US Congress called on urgently to supply Ukraine with lethal weapons
The United States called on urgently to provide military assistance to Ukraine by supplying lethal weapons. A corresponding appeal came from the American Congress.
For immediate delivery weapons Ukraine was made by two congressmen from the Republican Party Mike Rogers and Michael McCall. They demanded that the White House send lethal weapons to Kiev, saying that the United States does not need to wait for Putin to "cross the red lines" by seizing new territories in Ukraine. They have traditionally explained all this by "Russia's aggression."
Congressmen accused the Biden administration of "indulging Putin's wishes" and exchanging Ukraine for "Kremlin friendship." Among the claims listed are the withdrawal of two US Navy ships from the Black Sea, the waiver of sanctions against Nord Stream 2, and the refusal to communicate with Ukrainian President Zelensky before the summit with Putin. In general, they defended Ukraine from Putin, demanding "to stop all this."
In principle, Washington does not refuse to provide military assistance to Ukraine, it has allocated $ 150 million as another aid package. Kiev, which feared to become a bargaining chip in the negotiations between Biden and Putin, nevertheless becomes it, but already in the internal political struggle in the United States. As the American media have repeatedly written, the factor of Ukraine is often used to pressure the Republicans on the Democrats and vice versa.
