US Defense Secretary Austin said during his stay in Kiev on Monday: “In a conflict like this, there is no silver bullet.” It is important to provide the right skills and integrate them intelligently so as to achieve the right effect on the battlefield.
He assured Ukraine of further support. He sees “cross-party support in both houses of Congress” for it. Some members of Congress have legitimate questions that the administration will answer. President Joe Biden’s administration should fight to release new funds for Ukraine. Continuation of aid is controversial in the US Congress.
Ukraine has been defending itself against Russian aggression for almost 21 months. Kiev received massive financial and military assistance from the West. Ukraine fears a military setback due to an imminent decline in support.
