«Today the Department of Defense (DoD) announced approximately $1.1 billion in additional security assistance for Ukraine under the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative (USAI). This USAI package underscores the U.S. commitment to continuing to support Ukraine over the long term. It represents a multi-year investment in critical capabilities to build the enduring strength of Ukraine’s Armed Forces as it continues to defend Ukraine’s sovereignty and territory in the face of Russian aggression» we can read in a statement on official website of Pentagon (Washington headquarters of DoD).

Breaking Defense, an American specialist military website quoted by Defense One, made a fact sheet on the impressive arsenal of armaments donated by the US to Ukraine.

«Unlike Presidential Drawdown Authority (PDA), which DoD has continued to leverage to deliver equipment to Ukraine from DoD stocks at a historic pace, USAI is an authority under which the United States procures capabilities from industry. This announcement represents the beginning of a contracting process to provide additional priority capabilities to Ukraine in the mid- and long-term» further wrote Pentagon on the latest assistance.

  1. The Washington elites will do anything to protect their money laundry. American veterans can live homeless on the streets, American children can go hungry, and American elderly can sit, hungry, in their freezing apartments, but Biden, Pelosi, Kerry, Romney, and the others will maintain their cash flow from Ukraine. Disgusting heathens.

  2. Part divided Ukraine , part goes to Poland and becomes NATO bell boy, the other part is already Mother Russian zymlia =land ! All US Nuces position in and around Russia / n. It is not needed to fire it from close range and they yankees got as well space forces and their promised EPM ….. big boys with new toys. Putin said , we attack or we counter fire the decision making ( anglo -sacks ) centers ! Did missed anything !

  3. Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III and Ukrainian Minister of Defense Oleksii Reznikov should get rid of the masks. Poor optics.
    Unless this is all a huge money laundering scheme, it appears the DoD expects this war to last a few years. I wonder. In the event this war ends today will all of those defense contracts be voided. Probably not.

    • Most of DoD weapons procurements are some form of taxpayer money laundering. Take it from one who labored in DoD procurement for 40 years and witnessed the gradual erosion of cost oversight. The MICC is well and getting better with Crazy Joe at the helm.

    • Austin is the worst kind of stooge. A token black airborne infantry guy with minimal political savvy. I see ex General BetrayUs is coming back as expert MSM dolt. Grab your wallets!

  4. The first casualty of war is truth; Russia is either methodically achieving it’s ends or getting it’s clock cleaned with Putin’s days numbered – depending on whose propaganda you’re getting.
    I’ll say this: if Russia loses we all lose – at least those of us who still hope for a more civilized, multipolar international order.
    May those countries not already in the NWO slave pen realize that now is maybe the last time to stand together, using whatever means come to hand. After all, it is clear that the Western elite care no more about the welfare of their sheeple than their Ukrainian cannon fodder; they will ruthlessly murder or impoverish any number to achieve their ends; they are demonstrably Evil and the consequences of a total NWO victory don’t bear thinking about.

  5. The Russians have been very capable of turning any armaments sent to Ukraine into scrap metal before they reach the front. That is those that haven’t been sold on the Black Market.

    • War is good business for the “defense” contractors, the arms dealers, black market entrepreneurs, and Congress members. Meanwhile, the Ukrainian citizens and American people can go hungry. Nice, huh?
