White House: Money earmarked to help Ukraine will run out


Running out of money, U.S. weapons and munitions that have been flowing to Ukraine for nearly two years may stop reaching their destination by the end of this year. That’s the content of the White House’s warning message to congressional leaders if new help is not forthcoming. The package for Kiev, which was previously offered for more than 60 billion, was approved.

Political analyst Dan Rene said: “Republicans, and the American public in general, are getting impatient with more money coming to Ukraine, especially since there are so many internal issues waiting to be resolved, so the White House has moved to address this long-standing problem.” “Almost a year.”

U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration alerted U.S. lawmakers and detailed its spending of $111 billion in military and humanitarian aid to Ukraine. to engage in a major conflict.

For his part, international relations expert Ken Timmerman said: “The problem is that both sides did not negotiate, but stuck to their previous position. The White House wants to combine the funds for Ukraine and Israel in one package. The representatives refuse to do it.

And the White House warned in stark language that failure to secure congressional funding for Ukraine would cripple Kiev’s military capabilities, undermine its field gains and increase Russia’s chances for new military victories.

Many Republican lawmakers specifically question the possibility of continuing the flow of money to Kiev, while House Speaker Mike Johnson has tied financial aid to Ukraine to internal issues related to border security, making the task more difficult and complicated.

Military analysts who spoke to Sky News Arabia said the Ukrainian military faces many challenges, particularly the hardships it faces in winter and the continued attacks by Russian airstrikes and drones. Ukraine has failed to deliver the million bullets it promised a year ago.
