What you need to know about the lend-lease program
The main idea of the program is that it gives additional powers to the US President to use the available US military reserves and send them to Ukraine. And only then think about how to replenish these reserves.
Lend-Lease will speed up the transfer of important military equipment and other important supplies to Ukraine by reducing bureaucratic delays. The procedure allows for a de facto donation of weapons with provisions stipulating that the recipient countries will pay the United States later.
It is known that the United States took such a step for Ukraine because they believe that the Russian invasion is an existential threat to the liberal order. Washington also realized that the Ukrainian army could resist the invader.
After the Lend-Lease law for Ukraine is approved by the House of Representatives, according to the procedure, it will be sent to President Joe Biden for signature.
