(BLP) – The Biden regime is ready to put forward an additional $3 billion in military aid to Ukraine. According to a report by the Associated Press, this aid contains funds to supply and train Ukrainian military units “to fight for years to come.”
The AP report added:
As Russia’s war on Ukraine drags on, U.S. security assistance is shifting to a longer-term campaign that will likely keep more American military troops in Europe into the future, including imminent plans to announce an additional roughly $3 billion in aid to train and equip Ukrainian forces to fight for years to come, U.S. officials said.
This package was announced on August 24, 2022, six months into the Russo-Ukrainian War. This date also make Ukraine’s Independence Day, which celebrates the 31 years of being free from the dominion of the Soviet Union.
“The money will fund contracts for drones, weapons and other equipment that may not see the battlefront for a year or two, they said,” the AP report added.
The US plans on deepening its military presence in Europe, especially in Eastern Europe, which could potentially increase tensions between it and Russia in the future. The nature of the military aid being provided to Ukraine is all about fighting a protracted struggle against Russia to try to bog it down in a military quagmire.

The AP report highlighted:
Unlike most previous packages, the new funding is largely aimed at helping Ukraine secure its medium- to long-term defense posture, according to officials familiar with the matter.
The US national security state clearly wants a prolonged conflict with Russia in Ukraine. Since the Soviet Union collapsed, US foreign policy elites have wanted to bring Russia to heel — whether it’s by looting the country during the 1990s or trying to expand NATO into its historical domain. Much to these geopolitical tinkerers’ dismay, Russia is not willing to yield. It has re-emerged as a regional power that wants to have its say on the world stage.
With a vast nuclear arsenal, Russia is one of the world’s premier powers. In light of this, the stakes are very high in any potential conflict with it. DC foreign policy decision-makers have not grasped this and still insist on escalating against a nuclear power.
This is a recipe for sleepwalking into a potential nuclear conflict — a scenario in which nobody wins. The only way to avoid further escalation is for an America First takeover to go down in DC. America First is the only political movement that espouses the US’s foundational foreign policy of non-interventionism and restraint.
The current neoconservative/neoliberal paradigm simply puts the country on the fast track to nuclear conflict. It’s time for a different foreign policy vision to emerge in DC.
