The Pentagon on Friday announced an additional $300 million in military aid for Ukraine.
This is in addition to the $2.3 billion in military aid given to Ukraine since Russia invaded – and in addition to Congress approving $13.6 billion in aid for Ukraine.
Has anyone asked why the US has given Ukraine, a tiny corrupt country, 10% of their GDP in a matter of a couple months?
The Hill reported:
The Department of Defense announced on Friday the U.S. will provide $300 million in additional security assistance to Ukraine.
In a press release, the department said that it had notified Congress of “additional assistance activities under authority provided by the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative.”
The money is aimed to bolster Ukraine’s defenses against Russia’s invasion that has been going on for more than a month.
This package includes tactical secure communications systems, a counter-unmanned aerial system, nonstandard machine guns and other defense systems.
