Military Aid to Ukraine Suspended by U.S.

Military Aid to Ukraine Suspended by U.S.

( – According to John Kirby, the White House National Security Council Coordinator, during a press conference on January 11, the United States has temporarily suspended its military assistance to Ukraine, which must have pleased Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Kirby emphasized the need for Congress to address the supplemental request for national security, saying that they had already released the final drawdown bundle that could be funded. The United States’ aid has now come to a standstill. It seems like the Russians are merely ramping up their assaults. As he said earlier this week, they are now using ballistic missiles from North Korea to carry out their activities. Therefore, the necessity is critical now, especially during the winter.

Congress must approve a new request for more financing for national security before any extra aid can be provided.

The United States Department of Defense announced the latest installment of $250 million in military assistance to Ukraine on December 27.

Republicans who wanted tougher immigration laws rejected the U.S. Senate procedural vote on December 6, which would have provided additional funding of about $106 billion to Taiwan, Israel, and Ukraine.

In an effort to keep American forces out of the conflict with Russia, President Joe Biden pleaded with Congress prior to the vote to swiftly approve the assistance funding for Ukraine.

Republicans have blocked money for Ukraine because they want to fortify the U.S./Mexican border and have made it a condition of Ukraine’s financial aid that they execute their preferred strategy on the border. Democrats have a different view.

They are working effectively toward a shared goal of reaching an agreement, according to Senator Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ). They are dealing with the remaining one or two topics.

Press reports quoting the Pentagon on December 18 stated that the United States could not acquire additional weaponry to replace the equipment provided to Ukraine because they exhausted their allotted funds on December 30.
