U.S. President Joe Biden on April 19 exercised executive rights to withdraw an additional $325 million under the Foreign Assistance Act to provide Ukraine with more materiel.
The Pentagon stated the same day that the security assistance is “for more ammunition” for the precision-guided HIMARS rocket systems that the US has already provided, and that have proven to be effective on the battlefield against invading Russian forces and will be especially crucial for any spring counteroffensive.
The package includes additional 155-milimeter and 105-millimeter artillery rounds, tube-launched, optically-tracked, wire-guided (TOW) missiles, more than 9 million rounds of small armor ammunition, Swedish-made AT-4 anti-armor weapons, among other weaponry.
“The United States will continue to work with its Allies and partners to provide Ukraine with capabilities to meet its immediate battlefield needs and longer-term security assistance requirements,” the Department of Defense said in a news release.
Washington has provided more than $36 billion worth of security assistance to Kyiv since February 2022 when Kremlin autocrat Vladimir Putin ordered an all-out invasion of Ukraine.
The announcement precedes the April 21 meeting of more than 50 countries in Germany, known as the Ukraine Contact Group, which has been chaired by US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.
It will be the group’s 11th gathering since it was established more than a year ago and the latest Pentagon package is the 36th of its kind amid the European continent’s largest and bloodiest ground war since World War II.

What the Bullshit part of all this is. Not one cent has gone to the suffering people in Ukraine! They were promised money to help them from Zelensky. He hasn't given them anything!! How are they supposed to pay their rent? Buy food,? It's as corrupt as this government always was!
Whatever . . . I just think it's time for Biden to get serious about this war. The longer he allows this war to continue, the more Ukrainian and Russian lives will be lost. In total, how many men, women and children have already died from both sides, 300,000? More? The weakness of Biden is known throughout the world. If only Biden would give Ukraine enough weaponry to “win”, instead of only giving Ukraine enough to “not lose”. Unfortunately, until then, Ukrainians will continue to die and cities will continue to be destroyed.
TELL BIDEN to give Ukraine long-range precision missiles that will reach into the heartland of Russia and as many F-16 fighter jets that it takes for Ukraine to win. Show some strength and leadership Pres Biden! Am I wrong?
One more thing, the Russians need to deal with Putin somehow. Read this quote from U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham and his suggestion and maybe you'll agree. Maybe not. I'm not suggesting either way.
"The only way this ends my friend is for somebody in Russia to take this guy out." - U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham calling for the assassination of Vladimir Putin

Agreed even though America is the biggest donator of weaponry comparatively to the size of their military, feasible outlay, budget and economy its just a drop in the bucket. Get real and go big with weapons and crunch down on those Russians.
