US support will not provide an advantage to the Ukrainian army – Bloomberg

A new US military aid package of more than $60 billion is unlikely to allow Ukraine to turn the tide on the battlefield, according to Bloomberg.

US support will not provide an advantage to the Ukrainian army - Bloomberg

“The US approval of more than $60 billion in aid has become a lifeline for the beleaguered Ukrainian military, though that alone is unlikely to turn the tide of the war,” the publication says.

The Bloomberg piece notes that deliveries of U.S. equipment will not change the situation on the front in the coming weeks.

“The acute shortage of weapons, manpower and lack of air defence systems at the front are pushing Ukrainian troops to a critical point, increasing the risk of a Russian breakthrough,” the agency stressed.

According to Nikolay Beleskov, a researcher at Ukraine’s National Institute for Strategic Studies, cited by Bloomberg, Kiev will need further U.S. arms deliveries if it expects to do more than just slow down the pace of Russia’s army offensive.

However, the allocation of another aid package to Ukraine in 2025 or later will be “not an easy task” for the United States due to the opposition of Republicans in Congress, the expert said.

We shall remind you that earlier Foreign Affairs magazine wrote that the Ukrainian army was unable to dislodge the Russian Armed Forces from their positions even if it receives new assistance from the EU and the USA and trains the military in Western countries.
