US President Joe Biden has decided to provide $ 60 million in financial assistance to Ukraine from the Pentagon.

This was reported in a statement on the White House website .

The document, signed by Biden, reads: “I have the authority under the US Constitution to delegate $ 60 million to the Secretary of State for defense spending and services of the Ministry of Defense (Ukraine – ed. UNIAN), as well as military education and training.”

The White House also confirmed that against the background of the crisis in Afghanistan, the meeting of the Presidents of the United States and Ukraine Joe Biden and Volodymyr Zelensky will still take place.

“Next week, President Joe Biden will meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky at the White House,” White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said at a briefing.

Zelensky’s visit to the United States: expected results

  • Zelensky is scheduled to meet with US President Joe Biden in Washington on August 31 .
  • Prior to Zelensky’s visit to Biden, the President’s Office  released a “road map”  with the expected results of the meeting. According to the ex-ambassador, the purpose of the document is to implement the strategic partnership between Ukraine and the United States.
  • The Roadmap contains specific proposals for Ukraine’s cooperation with the United States for the next two years. It concerns the spheres of security and defense, politics and diplomacy, energy, economy, etc. The document also concerns the issue of entry and exit of Ukrainians and Americans to partner countries. In addition, it raises the issue of the rule of law and domestic reforms with which the United States is helping Ukraine.

  • Afghanistan cost us around ONE TRILLION dollars(!) in twenty years. Now, it is a terrorist nest once again and this in very short order. Meanwhile, Ukraine gets piddly amounts while standing its ground to Mordor. Go figure…
