US media: Biden has not yet decided whether to send Patriot air defense systems to Ukraine

US President Joe Biden has not yet decided whether to send Patriot air defense systems to Ukraine, which Kiev would very much like to have in service. They say that Washington should increase military assistance to the Armed Forces so that they can defend the country from an allegedly impending attack by Russian troops.


This is reported by the American television channel CNN, citing a source in the White House.

The US media notes that although the Armed Forces of Ukraine would very much like to receive air defense systems from overseas, American President Joe Biden has not yet decided whether to send Patriot air defense systems and other military products to Ukraine.

Indeed, in recent months, the Americans have sent Kiev Javelin anti-tank systems, Island patrol boats, first aid kits, radio stations, electronic equipment, engines, generators, medical equipment, spare parts, small arms weapon and ammunition. In this regard, as suggested by Biden's national security adviser Jake Sullivan, the Kremlin may regard additional arms supplies to the Ukrainian military as a provocation organized in response to Putin's ultimatum.

Despite this, the White House does not exclude that a new batch of military cargo will still be sent to Ukraine.

American experts believe that the United States will not supply Patriot air defense systems to Ukraine. One of the reasons is that the United States is unlikely to receive money from the Ukrainian budget for such a delivery, and it is not in American rules to transfer such a system free of charge. The deployment of the Patriot air defense system with the American contingent, as noted, could clearly provoke Moscow into decisive retaliatory actions.

      Do you know the price tag for the Patriot battery? About gigabax. The Poles finally bought it for 1,2 lard. And the service of the satellite constellation is not worth little money. Here are the Poles and brag

      amerikosov don’t get anything for free (and rightly so) - the Armed Forces of Ukraine have such pennies close enough, but give Ukraine a loan under their own credit? All right for the sheikhs, but Ukraine? minke whales anyone, but not "naive Chukchi youths" - complexes with such a price "for loyalty"? that's enough for them and the Javelins ... they don't even give them the F-16 decommissioned, and you - the SAM ..

        Yesterday Russia offered the West conditions, new treaties, etc. They say do not meddle in Ukraine, do not put MRBM in Europe, and so on and so on.
        And today the West responds - give up Crimea, surrender Donbass, leave Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Then they say we will think about these plans of yours.
        It turns out a new Yalta, which is still impossible to hope for, even theoretically?
        As well as the demands of the West are impossible even theoretically. Simply due to the fact that citizens of the Russian Federation have been living in the places they mentioned for a long time.
        And yes, they also asked about Transnistria. They say the Moldovan land is occupied.

          A new Yalta is impossible and these public statements are a bullet. Equal parties participated in the former Yalta, the modern Russian Federation is not considered as such.
          Means war .
          And the "RF proposals" were made publicly ... as publicly as possible, so that it would be clear to history that all measures and possibilities were taken to bring the matter to peace.
          There will be no peace.
          And this is good . This is clarity and certainty.
          And the fact that Russian offshore capital is urgently transferring its assets to Russian jurisdiction (offshores in Kaliningrad and on Russky Island) suggests that Western ultimatums have also been rejected.
          This means that the "Ukrainian question" does not have long to exist. As well as "Ukraine" itself.
          Then we'll see if these heroes will fight for her.
          And the fact that sabotage has become more frequent and intensified is also a sign that the denouement is close.
          Everything will happen next year.

            NATO already does not even hide that Russia is its main enemy and everything that the alliance does is directed against Russia. They speak directly in the eyes. Negotiations and treaties reject everything outright.
            And this has not happened yet!
            Or did they take such a step due to the fact that they no longer consider Russia an adequate rival in terms of economy, production, population and stability of power in the light of recent events?
            Protests will stir up. Including ... the authorities themselves. In the regions. There, too, not everything is so smooth, who works in whose interests. And they can do everything the other way around against the interests of the state. Although they look like patriots and honest people.
            And from under the floor to do everything to destroy the state.

            And our people said today to the West, they say, think seriously about our proposals. There will be no more of them. And this is in Ukraine as well.

    Sooner or later they will send. Ukraine has already been cut off. Cut off and owned by the Anglo-Saxons. Therefore, so that this chunk does not go back, almost everything from the conventional and modern will be put there.

        In 91, a militant minority broke up the Union. In the 14th, the same minority led Ukraine apart from the fraternal peoples. What am I doing? And besides, slogans are slogans, and you speak with slogans, but life is life.

      Well as belonging. The bottom line is that Russia pushed Ukraine itself into the hands of the West. Because Russia is stronger than Ukraine and Ukraine needs to look for allies and defenders ... and who can take such a role?
      In fact, doing business with Russia is problematic; the West has more loyal packages and economic advantages. If Russia had a GDP like China, all the former republics themselves would stand in line for an interruption in the Customs Union. And so you only have to intimidate everyone by force, without the carrot.
