A Defining Geopolitical Moment for the United States

Kyiv Post

The moment of truth has arrived, and the US cannot delay helping Ukraine defeat Russia’s aggressive plans any longer, otherwise the consequences for all will be dire.

On Oct. 20, 2023, the President of the United States requested from the US Congress a $61 billion aid package for Ukraine to “provide the critical training, equipment, and weapons necessary to help Ukraine defend and recapture its sovereign territory and protect the Ukrainian people against Russian aggression”.

Ukraine’s President voiced publicly that, without this financial aid, Russia’s all-out war against Ukraine could seriously take a turn for the worse.

Almost four months later, on Feb.13, 2024, the US Senate passed an emergency defense spending bill, which included an aid package for Ukraine. However, this aid package also needed the approval of the House of Representatives, which did not consider, let alone vote on, this bill for reasons that are difficult to justify.
