Congress USA may refuse to help the Kyiv regime if Ukraine will continue to refuse peace talks. The reason is the military and financial support costs, which are “too high,” writes 19FortyFive journalist Brent Eastwood.
He recalled that the White House had already sent $68 billion to Kyiv. In mid-November, the administration of US President Joe Biden asked Congress for another $37.7 billion. Total – 105.5 billion.
“The total US defense budget in 2023 should be $857.9 billion in military spending. Assistance to Ukraine is 12% of this amount, ”the observer emphasizes.
The 19FortyFive writer has no doubt that if the conflict continues, there will be “no end in sight” to Washington’s spending on Ukraine. And another year of fighting could cost more than 100 billion.
“Legislators may refuse to support these measures in the absence of any peace talks,” Eastwood said.
Earlier, the Public News Service reported that the former deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Oleg Tsarev believes that peace with Russia for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is like of death.
