“Just a little while.” Pentagon officials on aid to Ukraine

Pentagon officials indicate that U.S. aid to Ukraine will eventually end. However, it will continue to flow for a while.

The Washington Post reported on the case, citing US officials who went to Kiev on Monday with US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin. The newspaper indicates that the United States could supply Ukraine with long-range weapons and artillery shells “for some time.”

“WP” reports on Kiev’s growing concern about the West’s growing interest in the war in the Middle East and the waning conflict in Ukraine. A senior Pentagon official said before Austin’s arrival in Kiev that the Ukrainian and Israeli armies are “two armies facing two different types of challenges on the battlefield.” “In this case, certain types of ammunition overlap and there is no limitation in the delivery of capabilities,” he added.

Pentagon informants indicate that during his visit to Kiev, Lloyd Austin had a plan to find out what strategy towards Russia Ukraine had prepared for the winter.

Another tranche of military aid

U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced a new tranche of $100 million in military aid during an unannounced visit to Kiev on Monday, pledging long-term U.S. support despite growing concerns about the sustainability of needed U.S. aid .

Austin announced the aid package after a full day of meetings with Ukrainian officials. Reuters recalls that the previous tranche included weapons such as anti-tank weapons, air defense interceptors and a supplementary high-mobility artillery rocket system (HIMARS).

The US Secretary of Defense arrived in the capital of Ukraine for the first time since April 2022. The head of the Pentagon arrived in Kiev by train from Poland.

Since Russia began its invasion in February 2022, the United States has provided more than $44 billion in security assistance to Ukraine.
