According to a U.S. official on Tuesday, the US will unveil a fresh $3 billion security assistance package for Ukraine as early as Wednesday. This will be the single largest contribution to Kyiv since Russia’s invasion six months ago.

The United States absolutely loves Ukraine. This aid is coming again, and the lethality of these aids is getting bigger and bigger. Russia is really overwhelmed. I looked at the aid list, and they are all targeted, especially the anti-radiation missiles exposed on the Internet, which are deadly weapons to Russia’s radar system. If Russia’s radar system is destroyed, then Russia’s air defense system will be fatally threatened. , I have to say that the United States has thoroughly studied the characteristics of Russia, and Russia’s troubles will increase in near future.

Recently, the United States announced a new military aid to Ukraine totaling 750 million US dollars. The list given by the United States is:

1. M-31 satellite-guided munitions used by the HIMARS system;

2. 15 US Marine Corps equipment Boeing Scanhawk reconnaissance drone;

3, 40 mine-resistant anti-ambush armored vehicles;

4, 16 105mm towed howitzers, 36,000 rounds, thousands of sets of javelins, Dow and other anti-armor ammunition. And an unknown number of anti-radiation missiles and so on.

Apart from this the United States will announce a new security assistance package for Ukraine of about $3 billion as early as Wednesday, a U.S. official said on Tuesday, in what would be the single largest tranche to Kyiv since Russia’s invasion six months ago.

The package is being prepared to coincide with Ukraine’s independence day on Wednesday. The package uses funds from the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative (USAI) appropriated by Congress to allow the Biden administration to procure weapons from industry rather than taking weapons from existing U.S. weapons stocks.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the official said the new weapons did not appear to include types of arms that had not been provided previously to the Ukrainian military. But the official said it would focus on ammunition and more medium-term objectives like defense systems.

I have to say that the United States has “true love” for Ukraine! However, in the face of this endless war of attrition between the two sides, Ukraine’s military industry has long been exhausted. Without external military assistance, Ukraine will lose badly, and quickly.

But don’t forget, this is a group fight between Western countries against Russia. Behind Ukraine are the United States and NATO countries. In the face of this group fight, even the fighting nation can’t stand it. Russia has lost about more than 5,000 military equipment so far. The list is as follows: 1,800 tanks, 1,000 infantry fighting vehicles; 650 armored vehicles; More than 300 guns and countless transport trucks.

Personnel losses: according to the new york times: Since the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, about 25,000 Russian soldiers have been killed, including 257 general-level and colonel-level officers, which can be described as tragic. In order to make these casualties insensitive, Russia stop publishing reports related to casualties from the end of March, so it cannot be ruled out that the actual Russian casualties are higher than these.

Ukrainian civilians have paid a heavy price5,587 are confirmed dead, and the true number is believed to be in the tens of thousands. The number of refugees has surpassed 6.6 million. Military losses have been heavy on both sides, with about 9,000 Ukrainians. Ukraine has lost control of 20 percent of its territory to Russian forces and their proxies in recent years. The destruction has already cost Ukraine at least $113.5 billion, and it may need more than $200 billion to rebuild.

Once Russia activates its nuclear warhead, Russian nuclear missiles will arrive in Berlin, the capital of Germany, in 106 seconds, Paris, the French capital, in 200 seconds, and London, the British capital, in 202 seconds. Russian Duma member Zhulavlev even pointedly said: If Moscow launches a nuclear war, no one will survive.
