War Chest Running Dry? Biden Admin Fears Ukraine Funding Tap May Run Dry Soon

Published on

The White House warned on Monday that funding for military aid packages to Ukraine is running low. They asked for a fresh aid package, not just for Ukraine, before the end of the year. Shalanda Young, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), stated that the US government was out of both time and money to continue giving aid to Ukraine before the end of the year.

To reinforce this point, the Biden administration has asked Congress to take action on a package of aid that was sent to Ukraine by the administration in October. They have warned that it will affect our national security. Young stressed urgency in her letter addressed to Speaker Mike Johnson, (R-La), House Majority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, (DNY), Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer, (DNY), and Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell.

“I want to make it clear that without Congress action, we will run out of resources by the end of the year to purchase more weapons and equipment and to provide the equipment from U.S. Military Stocks. No magical pot of money is available at this time. Young wrote: “We are out of funds and nearly out of time.”

“We have no money to help Ukraine in this war. “This isn’t an issue for next year,” she said. “Now is the time to support a democratic Ukraine in its fight against Russian aggression. Congress must act now.

Young explained in her warning that the nearly $111 billion allocated for Ukraine’s military aid had been used, and the Pentagon has spent 97 percent of the $62 billion it received last month. This is in addition to the State Department’s $ 4.7 billion in aid to Ukraine. Young continued to make her point by stating that inaction will “kneecap’ Ukraine’s efforts on battlefields and increase the chances of a Russian win. Young stated that if the request was approved by Congress, $50 billion would be allocated to domestic national defense restocking. This is on top of the $30 billion request sent to Congress by the White House in October to replenish our inventory, after having sent most to Ukraine.

As the line between the two sides becomes more static, an expert calls it a transition from “maneuver war” to “positional battle”.

Frank Ledwidge is a senior lecturer at the University of Portsmouth in England, who teaches war studies. He was formerly a British military intelligence officer. “We are basically in a First World War scenario, where two entrenched armies cannot break each other.”

Bitter weather is expected to bring an end to the fighting after a deadly storm last week ravaged the area.

…” A Ukraine victory could change what is now widely viewed as a stalemate,” Rajan Menon said, an analyst at Defense Priorities in Washington.

Menon explained that the war is at a standstill for several reasons. These include ambivalence from Kyiv’s allies and a lack of urgency, which resulted in some vital supplies arriving too late to allow for an effective counteroffensive.

The war in Ukraine is now taking a back seat as the conflict in Israel approaches its third month. The Biden White House would have to be urging Congress to act on the spending package it sent in October.

The sudden visit by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to Kyiv in an apparent attempt to show that Ukraine is still a top priority in Washington, he announced $100 million of new military aid …” Tactically the shift of attention from Ukraine towards Israel made our situation more difficult because our war ceased being the single hottest spot on the planet”, Yehor Chernev of the Ukrainian Parliament, and the deputy chairman of the national security, defense, and intelligence committee told NBC News.

Speaker Johnson is the culprit, as he stated that he was confident that both aid packages for Ukraine and Israel would pass. He would prefer that the aid be split into two packages – one for each country, and money for border security on the domestic side in the Ukraine bill. The White House is unsure when a bill or set of bills will be drafted and passed by the House or Senate.
