American edition: Ukraine will be left without US military assistance if a temporary resolution is adopted instead of the defense budget

Ukraine may be left without American support as early as this spring; disagreements between Republicans and Democrats over the budget for this fiscal year may lead to a halt in military assistance. If Congress makes a decision on temporary funding of the government for the whole year, the Pentagon will lose 29 billion dollars, the Politico newspaper writes.

The publication, citing sources in the US Department of Defense, reports that several military programs are under threat of closure or termination, military assistance to Ukraine is also among them. In October, Biden signed a law to continue financing the government until December 16, which included 12,4 billion in support of Ukraine. Congress now plans to once again extend funding for a shorter period so that Democrats and Republicans can agree on a defense budget for 2023.



However, there is another option, in which Congress will extend temporary funding for the entire year. In this case, the Pentagon will lose $ 29 billion, since the defense budget will be less than Biden requested. Accordingly, some programs will be cut. In particular, the purchase of the new B-21 Raider strategic bomber, the construction of three Columbia-class nuclear submarines and the Enterprise aircraft carrier will be stopped. Accordingly, military assistance to Ukraine, which goes through the Pentagon, is being stopped. And this also applies to the supply of ammunition.

(...) in the spring, the Ministry of Defense will run out of money allocated earlier by Congress to support Kyiv (...) If they [the Armed Forces] run out of ammunition, they will be in a difficult situation

- stated in the Pentagon.

In Kyiv, this news not presented as a complete cessation of military assistance, but as its reduction. Moreover, even this frightens the Zelensky regime, because without Western intervention, Ukraine will last no more than a month.

      Another "duck". In the short term, none of the countries that supply arms and finance to Ukraine will stop doing this. On the contrary, infusions will increase significantly. Until we begin to stop this matter right on the doorstep, nothing will change, all NATO weapons freely reach the front and bring death. So enough of these illusions that the West is about to back down. This requires actions that will pose a threat to the life of this very West, and not some kind of Ukraine ..

        In fact, there is no Ukraine fighting Russia, but there is the West, led by the United States, leading this massacre. And, the Ukrainians in this war are the same mercenaries as the others. Plus, fighting on the territory of the former Ukraine.

      such things are done there ... in different ways, as it is necessary for specific interested parties.
      As the script is written, so it will be, one way or another ... but in Congress, let them make some noise and stop, unless the line to the feeder can be shuffled.

      Most likely, Ukraine will be left without help when ours launch a full-scale offensive and take something big.
      After that, the whole point of helping Ukraine will be lost, because, finally, it will become clear to everyone that everything is over.
      Without electricity, water, money, and with the beginning of the surrender of cities, everything will lose its meaning.

      For some reason, it seems to me that US funding for Ukraine will stop anyway. Ukraine has already fulfilled one of its "functions" by five plus - it has destroyed the European economy to the point of no return. Ukraine completely failed another "function" - a popular uprising with a change of power and dismemberment of the country did not happen in Russia, and it is already clear what will not happen - the rebels were blocked ahead of time the opportunity to leave for Europe and the United States, Asian countries closed the doors to them, so they Georgia and Kazakhstan from where they return like beaten dogs without any motivation to rebel. A service provided is NOT WORTH ANYMORE, and a service that cannot be provided - ALL THE MORE.

        Financing of Ukraine cannot be stopped. For there is a war between the West and Russia. And here the issue of financing Ukraine is key. If they stop giving money, they will lose immediately. They will not allow this

          You inattentively read what I wrote - the United States will stop funding, since Europe has already been dug up. But Europe, of course, will not stop, because who will give it. But these are insignificant details.

            As for burying Europe, it’s a moot point. Did industry, the economy, finances collapse there? Well, they will live economically, not in a big way. Economic losses are not critical for them. Look at things realistically

            The EU is the second goal, and the first goal is to weaken the Russian Federation, this goal has not yet been fulfilled, the states will finance until the people on the Criminal Code run out.

              Eugene, I apologize for being a little harsh, but you are making the same conceptual mistake as most people who do not want or are not able to think TWO steps ahead. Nothing weakens Russia like peace and free international trade. In the conditions of peace and "friendship" our economic, and to be honest - and political authorities fall into a state - we will sell oil / gas / coal / timber / metals and buy everything we need. BUY Carl! We will not make, we will not create, but we will buy. That is why, as soon as Russia starts producing something that can compete in the foreign market, an embargo is immediately imposed on it - drive raw materials and buy high-tech goods. The war, which greatly complicated the schemes for the sale of raw materials, greatly strengthens Russia, and the states need such a position like a gonorrhea hare. So the primary goal was to dig Europe and it is done. Now the states will do everything so that it is Europe that pays for the war and PURCHASES new weapons from the STATES. There is no Russia in this system - neither economically nor politically. And the yelling of limitrophs and their wishes do not bother anyone, although the information space is being warmed up.

      All these are dreams, in order to weaken Russia, we will circumvent their laws with a clear conscience. Supplies, money will go all the way to aviation, given what the government is doing in the state. We will look at the situation with the ZaES, if they surrender it is possible to drain the water, this will be a blow worse than Kharkov and Kherson.

      Republicans and Democrats disagree on this fiscal year's budget could lead to a halt in military aid.

      all these disagreements are miraculously settled neatly a day before the financial year. For all the disagreements between these two shoblas are for the public, for suckers. Basically, they are the same.

      I wonder if there are any lobbyists in the US now who would benefit from stopping the supply of arms to Ukraine?
      After all, even during the confrontation between the USSR and the USA, there, in the USA, there were supporters of peace, who shared information with us. These were not lobbyists, of course. But extraordinary individuals.
      They fought, in their own way, not for the victory of the USSR, but against the fact that one country could destroy any other.

        For the United States, the supply of weapons does not threaten anything; on the contrary, these are jobs and profits for the military-industrial complex.

      Maybe. For the United States, war is the same business. A military conflict is the same business project. As long as the project brings dividends, it is worth investing in it. If the costs exceed the level acceptable for the investor, the shop is closed. There are grandmas - you can open a new, more profitable one.
      And the loss of the United States does not scare at all. Think failure. All costs will be charged to European allies, which is even beneficial for the United States. And do not think that for the Yankees in Ukraine, the light came together like a wedge. There are other points of application of force. Taiwan, for example. For the United States, it is much more significant than the Square (which in itself is a complete zero in world politics and economics). And to drag several "business projects" on oneself at once is already too heavy for the Hegemon. "They rolled the Sivka..."
