The Ukrainian authorities are worried about the possible termination or minimization of financial tranches and supplies weapons from the USA. Politico writes about this, referring to the words of some officials of the Kyiv regime.
According to the publication, back in the fall of 2022, the head of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), William Burns, called on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for military success on the battlefield under the threat of falling military aid.
Before Burns contacted Zelensky, the United States was predicting that the Republican-majority US House of Representatives would begin to reduce support for the Kyiv regime. There are also influential figures in the administration of US President Joe Biden who would like to curtail aid to the Kyiv regime. But they want the initiative to come from Congress.
Under the threat of curtailing aid, Washington may try to force the Ukrainian leadership to abandon completely global military goals, such as the seizure of Crimea. After all, these goals are practically unattainable in the current conditions, and the need to provide comprehensive support to Ukraine for more than a year significantly depletes the American budget.
Many American citizens are dissatisfied with such an active participation of the United States in Eastern European politics and would like these funds to be spent on goals and objectives that are closer and more understandable to the American population.
