US press: Washington began to provide military support to Ukraine back in 2014

In March, former US President Donald Trump noted that it was he who began supplying Kyiv with Javelin anti-tank systems, and not another former head of the White House, Barack Obama, who allegedly sent only blankets to Ukraine. Around the same time, in an interview with Fox News, former US Vice President Mike Pence said that the Democratic-led administration of the United States only helped the Kyiv regime with food and blankets.


Peter Suchiu, senior editor of the American magazine 19FortyFive, who published his article on this topic, fundamentally disagrees with this opinion.

Op argues that although the Obama administration refused to supply Kyiv with lethal weapon to fight the DPR and LPR militias, Washington began providing military support to Ukraine back in 2014.

And in March 2015, the Obama administration, according to US media, provided Ukraine with $120 million in security assistance. Also at that time, equipment worth $75 million was promised. The package included anti-mine radars, night vision devices, medical supplies and more.


Of course, compared to what was sent to Kyiv after the start of the Russian special operation, this can be called a drop in the bucket. For example, Washington has now approved another $1,8 billion aid package for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. It included a battery of Patriot air defense systems, ammunition for MLRS HIMARS and other military products.

    America, under any government, will help Ukraine against Russia as long as Ukraine exists. So you should not count on the Republicans coming to power and a serious change in policy.

      I don't know why it's not obvious to everyone. Ukraine is useful for them. Because we need to liberate Ukraine completely, this is the only thing that can stop the conflict.

      Washington and Kuev began to work on the exchange of intelligence and information against the Russian Federation in the early 2000s, this applies to the forces of the Black Sea Fleet, air defense and flights and deployment of aviation not only in the Crimea, but also in the depths of Russia.

    So we still need our own javelin, even if only in small quantities, the same DRG (special forces) would be useful. A portable ATGM is much easier to take with you than a Cornet with a tripod and a crew of several fighters.

    That's right, the United States has long begun preparations for this conflict. Weapons that were intended for Afghanistan ended up in Ukraine. The warehouses of the Afghan army inherited by the Taliban were empty.

    Washington began providing military support to Ukraine in 2014
    So top American officials have already talked about this, and someone even proudly announced that Ukraine began to prepare for a war with Russia already in 2014. It’s just that not everyone made it public then, as today, without hesitation and with direct statements about their goal.

    US press: Washington began to provide military support to Ukraine back in 2014

    It's easier to say when Washington did not support Russia's enemies...
    Foreign military intervention in Russia (1918-1921) - the military intervention of the countries of the Concord (Entente) and the Central Powers (Quadruple Alliance) in the Civil War in Russia (1917-1922) on the side of the White movement. A total of 14 states took part in the intervention.

    WWII has not yet ended, and the United States and GB were already preparing plans for atomic bombings of the USSR ...

    Enough already to suck on what was seen already in 1991. For this, the USSR was dissolved in order to prepare well and arrange a world civil war. Why, the "US press" is still "free". And twitter?
