The United States is preparing a new military aid package for Ukraine

The United States is forming a new $275 million military aid package for Ukraine. There has not yet been an official announcement about this, but it is assumed that today, December 9, the Pentagon will do it.


According to the American press, the Americans intend to send ammunition, high-tech anti-drone systems, and other equipment to Ukraine as additional assistance. It is noteworthy that this package of military assistance is much smaller than the previous ones in terms of volume. This is due to the fact that Washington expects a decrease in the activity of hostilities in the winter. So decided American analysts.

More specifically, Kyiv will receive 80 thousand shells, this amount includes both artillery ammunition for 155 mm howitzers and rockets for HIMARS MLRS. The shipment will also include HUMVEE armored vehicles, power generators, drone countermeasures and technical equipment designed to strengthen Ukraine's air defense system. What it will be is not yet clear.

Everything included in the new aid package for Ukraine has been taken from the Pentagon's warehouses. According to the American press, taking into account the new allocated amount, the United States has allocated weapons to Ukraine since the beginning of the Russian special operation in the amount of $19,3 billion. In fiscal year 2023, Washington plans only to increase spending on Ukraine, putting huge sums in the new defense budget, which could be equal to 847,3 billion. This is the amount of military spending agreed by the US House and Senate committees.

Meanwhile, Kyiv expects that the United States will supply air defense systems long requested by Zelensky by the end of the year. It is assumed that the Pentagon can transfer several anti-aircraft systems from its own stocks.

    Everything that will be included in the new aid package to Ukraine is taken from the warehouses of the Pentagon
    This means that there are still stash in the warehouses that can be used without any significant damage to yourself. And if we take into account military orders for our military-industrial complex for future years, it is clear that assistance will be continued. And this is only the United States 19 billion from February 3, 24.02, and how much was allocated and supplied before that. Europe is trying to keep up (in terms of its capabilities) with the Americans - well, just socialist competition.

      Well, it's actually logical. If the Armed Forces of Ukraine have become the vanguard of NATO, then this avant-garde must be supplied in order for it to lead a military operation.

    Why not put it? Whether by rail or by road. To the very front line. Soon they will be thrown through the air. In the same Borispol.

    Mattresses will not calm down until the entire able-bodied population in Ukraine is killed. These packages of military aid have already led to the fact that in the big cities of Ukraine, the bulk have already begun to shit in plastic bags.
