Developments in Ukraine Military aid of 150 million US dollars to Kyiv

According to the Tasnim International News Agency, the President of the United States, Joe Biden, ordered the allocation of another 150 million dollars to send security aid to Ukraine. This news was published on the Pentagon website last night. In addition, Biden ordered that the necessity of allocating another 12 million dollars to Kyiv should also be reviewed, taking into account the national security interests of the United States.

In this regard, White House spokesperson Karin Jean-Pierre explained that the new package of US aid to Ukraine will include anti-aircraft missiles, ammunition required for HIMARS missile systems, artillery shells and other critical equipment. He added that the new funding includes resources for the Pentagon to purchase interceptor missiles for the Patriot and NASAMS missile systems in favor of Kiev.

In this regard, Anatoly Antonov, the Russian ambassador in Washington, reminded this morning that the United States is only moving towards war by sending new weapons to Kiev, and with this action, it has rejected President Vladimir Putin's proposal to stop the conflict and achieve peace. .

Antonov said: “The US government continues its warmongering policy and has delusions about the possibility of a strategic victory over Russia.”

The Russian diplomat called military aid to Ukraine a “senseless project” that would encourage new crimes and kill more civilians, including women and children. He emphasized that “cross-border supporters” of Ukraine are trying to justify such actions. According to him, the new US military aid to Kyiv is to show resistance to the collapse of the world order on the eve of the NATO summit, but the heavy cost of these measures is ignored.

“Only fools don't understand that continuing the conflict in Ukraine puts money in the pockets of American military contractors,” Antonov said. The United States is on the brink of conflict with Russia, the world's largest nuclear power. In the United States, they do not pay attention to the consequences that have inevitably arisen “because of the short-sighted and dangerous policies of the Washington authorities”.

This diplomat emphasized that the sanctions imposed by Western countries against Russia have led them to political and economic destruction, but the American government does not have a correct understanding of the real situation.
