US Announces Major $300 Million Military Support For Ukraine

The White House has announced a surprise move to send $300 million in military equipment to Ukraine, including ammunition, rockets, and anti-aircraft missiles.

This decision comes amidst a stalled bill in Congress for further aid to Ukraine, sparking partisan debate.

National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan emphasized that while this aid is significant, it falls short of meeting Ukraine’s battlefield needs in the face of Russian aggression. He stated, “This ammunition will keep Ukraine’s guns firing for a period, but only a short period.”

Efforts to pass a budget for aid to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan have been ongoing in Congress. While a $60 billion aid bill has cleared the Senate, it awaits consideration in the House of Representatives.

Speaker of the House Mike Johnson, aligned with former President Donald Trump, has held back on endorsing the Senate bill. He insists that the House will only vote on its own aid bill after Congress addresses comprehensive immigration reform.

In a rare move, a bipartisan group of lawmakers in the House has launched a petition to push for a vote on the Senate bill. The tactic hasn’t been successfully employed since 2015.

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden has underscored his support for Ukraine by hosting Poland’s president and prime minister at the White House.

In another development, Denmark has pledged to send approximately $336 million in ammunition and artillery to Ukraine.

President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine previously highlighted the challenges his country faces due to an “artificial shortage” of weapons, signaling the urgent need for international support.
