The Pentagon revealed the amount of military aid sent to Kyiv under President Joe Biden

US President Joe Biden, who visited Kyiv the day before, promised Zelensky a new military aid package worth about $500 million. He did this literally immediately after the appearance in Kyiv. Later, the Pentagon revealed what was behind the promise of the owner of the White House.

According to the US Department of Defense, the new military assistance package for Ukraine will include: GMLRS precision guided missiles for HIMARS missile systems, 155 mm artillery shells, 120 mm mortar rounds, four airborne target detection radars, Javelin anti-tank missile systems, 2000 disposable hand-held anti-tank rocket launchers, four Bradley Fire Support Team forward artillery observer and forward air guidance armored vehicles, two repair recovery vehicles, Claymore anti-personnel mines, explosive equipment, night vision devices, protected tactical radios, medical equipment and various spare parts and other field equipment.



All this will cost the US 460 million dollars. In total, Washington has transferred military assistance to Kyiv, since the beginning of Biden's presidency, in the amount of more than 30 billion dollars. At the same time, 29,8 billion of this amount was sent to Ukraine after the start of the Russian special operation.

In total, the United States has pledged more than $30,4 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since the start of the Biden administration.

- The Pentagon said in a statement.

But most of all on Monday, Zelensky was pleased with another statement by Biden, in which he promised Ukraine to supply 700 tanks, thousands of armored vehicles and artillery systems, more than two million artillery shells and over 50 advanced MLRS. True, he did not say when all this will be delivered or where the United States and allies will take it all.

      and over 50 advanced MLRS.
      Arestovich's "dreams" come true. I wonder how long these deliveries will be made and I really hope that by this time we will have a way to destroy them, because this is VERY much and such a quantity can help the Armed Forces of Ukraine not only to contain the RF Armed Forces, but also to go over to them in a "counterattack"

        There is no doubt that Biden's visit to Kyiv was coordinated with the Kremlin, and the United States was given guarantees that Biden would not be hit by missiles. Then everyone can think for themselves. I'm already somehow tired of these agreements: we give them resources, oil, gas, grain, uranium, palladium, platinum, diamonds and more, they are in us - missiles, shells, mines, grenades, bullets, etc. Can't it be vice versa?

          It was agreed upon no more than Pelosi's visit to Taiwan. In the original news, it is clearly written notified - notified / reported. But our propaganda media love to lie, and the commentators behind them repeat massively about the agreement.

          But you can say it differently: a person who is not unreasonably considered by many to be the owner of the American "colony" Ukraine, in a certain form asks permission from another person (organization, body, country) to visit his colony and guarantees of his own security for the duration of this visit.
          It is not clear (and sorry) just why he received these guarantees ..

      It will be delivered, but how, I don’t understand, such a quantity of equipment appears in Ukraine with impunity?! Ours don't track anything at all, do they?! And where are the strikes on bridges and railways, transport arteries?!

        You can't hit the railroad, or you'll hit Biden. Red line though.

      The main thing is how long our stocks of weapons and the capacities of the defense complex will last.

      Zelensky was cheered by another Biden statement in which he promised Ukraine to supply 700 tanks, thousands of armored vehicles and artillery systems, more than two million artillery shells and more than 50 advanced MLRS.
      And these "700 tanks and thousands of armored vehicles" will be supplied directly by the United States, or did Biden still assign part of the supplies to Europe? Biden only recently promised 31 Abrams tanks, and even then not soon. Then what kind of 700 are we talking about? The delivery of infantry fighting vehicles has already begun, and also so far 60 units, which is clearly not "thousands". But the promises, of course, are encouraging for Zelensky, and they make us think.

        In Europe, only the Poles have Abrams, so it’s impossible to get 700 pieces in Europe and the mattresses will have to give up their own to fulfill the promise of the Can, or force the operator countries to share the tanks from among the mattresses purchased.

      In total, the United States has pledged more than $30,4 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since the start of the Biden administration.

      So Ukraine received assistance in the amount of half the annual military budget of Russia

      We have spent 60-70 billion annually on defense over the past 10 years

      I wonder how much Naftogaz transferred personally to Biden during the special operation, it was not just that he put his son on the board of Naftogaz, the scheme is banal, the United States allocates for the war, and the profit from the pipe is personally given to Biden.

      Given the US plans that the conflict will last at least another 2-3 years, the announced volume of supplies does not look unrealistic.
