Because of Russia's unleashing a full-scale war, the United States is step by step supporting Ukraine. The last “slap” to Vladimir Putin on the part of the American side will be the signing of Lend-Lease on May 9.

Putin will get a “slap”

After the US Congress voted for Lend-Lease for Ukraine, many wondered why Joe Biden was in no hurry to sign it. However, the President of the United States decided to do this at the time when Putin would hold a parade in Moscow to the nearest hour.

This is just the last slap in the face for Putin,” Piontkovsky stressed.

Pay attention!The last Lend-Lease was used during World War II. Then the United States transferred weapons to European countries that fought against Nazi Germany.

The publicist also recalled that before the vote for Lend-Lease, a cascade of events took place, which also confirmed the support of Ukraine by the United States. In particular, on April 25, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, as well as the head of the Pentagon, Lloyd Austin, arrived in Kyiv.

After that, an important event was the meeting of ministers of 40 countries at the Ramstein air base in Germany. They met on April 26 to discuss support for Ukraine in the war with Russia.
