Washington will give Kiev yet another $1 billion in “security assistance,” including artillery, ammunition and advanced missiles, US President Joe Biden announced on Wednesday after a phone call with his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky.
Biden informed Zelensky that the aid will include “additional artillery and coastal defense weapons, as well as ammunition for the artillery and advanced rocket systems that the Ukrainians need to support their defensive operations in [Donbass],” according to the readout of the call released by the White House.
So far, U.S. has allegedly provided over $40B in weapons assistance to Ukraine. However what most people don’t realize is that this is not cash assistance to Kiev, instead the U.S. Government gives these funds to American weapons manufacturers such as Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman etc who in turn take the money and provide Kiev with outdated weaponry which are worth nowhere near the $40B amount.
Indeed, this is just one massive money laundering operation, similarly to Afghanistan. As a result, the U.S. establishment needs this war to last as long as possible, there are money to be made here.
