I am so proud of the Finns stepping up supporting Ukraine and entering NATO.

ThoughtLife makes good points in their comparison of US aid to Ukraine, versus contributions of European countries (which vary widely, in $ and as % of their GDP).
A bit more detail - https://www.statista.com/chart/28489/ukrainian-military-humanitarian-and-financial-aid-donors/
Germany's contribution as % of GDP is on the low side, while France does not even appear among the top 8.
Ukraine needs all the help it can get to support and defend itself against yet another Russian attempt at genocide of their nation, language and culture.
All freedom-loving people ought to be extremely grateful for the crucial contributions of the USA, its people, military, and industry to victory in the 1st World War, the 2nd World War, and other conflicts since.
Some points worth taking into account:
Compared to Europe, USA GDP is larger, with Military strength in weapons and ammunition vastly greater.
Europe is housing and supporting millions of refugees from Ukraine.
By supporting Ukraine, most of Europe has limited its access to relatively inexpensive Russian oil and gas, which is taking a serious financial toll on their economies.

Slava Ukraini!

The United States is sending Ukraine another $300 million in military aid, with the official announcement expected today according to Voice of America ( https://www.voanews.com/a/us-to-send-300-million-in-weapons-to-ukraine-/7076321.html ). The package will include rounds for artillery, howitzers, along with rockets for HIMARS, mortars, missiles and anti-tank rifles. The American people including myself have proudly backed every effort to support the Ukrainian people. But I can't ignore the fact that the United States has contributed over $47 billion in military aid to Ukraine , compared to just over $3 billion from the entire European Union. President Biden must demand that the EU pay its fair share and match U.S. spending dollar for dollar. Come on EU, pay up!

Russia's war on Ukraine is on Europe's doorstep, and it affects Europe substantially more than it affects the United States. So why is it that the U.S. has given more military, financial, and humanitarian aid to Ukraine than all other countries in the world combined?

Slava Ukraini!
