The U.S. resolution on strengthening the military assistance to Ukraine looks more like a Declaration, but not real support.
Comments about this correspondent of ГолосUA said political expert Valentin Gaidai.
“Let’s look at the previous 3-4 years of American military aid. They are not particularly strengthened our armed forces. Yeah was transferred to the Javelin, but it’s more like a symbolism of such support, the States of Ukraine, because Javelin States passed many countries, including those where the possibility of military actions is quite high. The same Kuwait can put in an example, other countries in the Middle East. There is nothing supernatural. There are rumors about the possible transfer of two frigates or one. Perhaps it will strengthen our fleet, still quite mild on the Black sea,” – said the analyst.
According to Viktor Gaidai, in any case, it looks more like a Declaration, but not real help.
“Yes, the United States declares that they seem to be with us and support us, but in fact that aid, like a cat laugh. I repeat that any real strengthening of the Ukrainian army with US assistance I have ever seen. Yes, there in the defense budget millions of dollars for Ukraine. Some of it is spent on uniforms, training is everything. But some global assistance I do not see. For example, Japan, South Korea, they really help. Or, as I said, some of the Gulf countries: Kuwait, Saudi Arabia. Here indeed we see the aid to these countries. And we have it so sluggish”, he said.
We will remind, in the U.S. Senate submitted a resolution calling for the strengthening of defense aid to Ukraine, and supporting the abolition of the construction of the pipeline “Nord stream-2”.
