Republicans in the US threaten to cut aid to Ukraine: how the situation can actually change
Republican leader Kevin McCarthy announced a cut in aid to Ukraine if his party comes to power in November. However, it is unlikely that the United States will completely refuse assistance to our state.
After all, there is a balance of power in the United States. This opinion Channel 24 was voiced by military expert Petro Chernik.
Biden will continue to support Ukraine
In addition, until 2024, US President Joe Biden will firmly hold power in his hands. According to the military expert, the American leader will continue to initiate assistance to our state.
However, if the right wing of the Republican wing comes to power, it will greatly complicate our life. Since the Republicans “represent the American oil and gas lobby” and have their own views on the development of events in the world.
In a strategic perspective, America is a unique country, in that part that there really is a balance interests. Here are questions of our diplomacy and the ability to balance these interests, – explained Chernik.
According to him, while Ukraine has a “window of opportunity” directly under the control of Joe Biden, it is necessary to use it as much as possible. In addition, the amount of weapons already provided to the US is already unprecedented, since the Second World War.
“Money is allocated, laws are not retroactive, and especially in the United States of America. And I believe that Joe Biden will use this resource wisely,” the military expert summed up.
