Joe Biden has announced that he signed off yet another new Ukraine military aid package Wednesday, with $325 million of war supplies from American sellers handed over to Kiev.
This reveal by the White House comes at the same time Ukraine’s defense minister shared that the nation was just given U.S-made Patriot surface-to-air guided missile systems. According to the Associated Press, materials in the gift include demolition munitions to clear routes, over 9 million rounds of small arms ammunition, four logistics support vehicles, extra parts, and equipment for harbor safeguarding and maintenance and repair.
Breitbart News reported that this monetary assistance package marks the 36th time the Presidential Drawdown Authority has been depleted to assist Ukraine since Russia invaded the country in February 2022. It reportedly comes after the White House announced another sum of $2.6 billion in military aid earlier this month.
Many are not surprised that the U.S. is handing over powerful weapons to Ukraine. A segment by Fox News host Tucker Carlson earlier this month claimed that the conflict in the eastern European nation is largely one of the United States.
“The slides show that this is not Ukraine’s war. It’s our war. The United States is a direct combatant in a war against Russia,” Carlson said on his primetime show earlier this month. “As we speak, American soldiers are fighting Russian soldiers. So this is not a regional conflict in Eastern Europe. This is a hot war between the two primary nuclear superpowers on Earth.”

Carlson additionally noted that the war has never been formally declared, nor was it approved by U.S. Congress, making it a “violation of American law.”
More recently, Carlson has discussed the secret U.S. government-funded biolabs in Ukraine, which had their existence admitted by Victoria Nuland of the State Department when she acknowledged that there is concern that “Russian forces may be seeking to gain control of them.”
A report from Breitbart at the end of last year found that the cumulative total of $113 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine up to that point surpasses the military budget of every nation in the world except for the U.S. and China.
