Biden Freezes Defense Aid to Ukraine on Eve of Russian Summit

The world is getting more dangerous.

In an interview prior to the Biden-Putin summit announcement, Deputy Assistant Defense Secretary Laura Cooper told the Washington Examiner that the Pentagon was providing a wide range of military assistance to Ukraine.


“We are working to ensure Ukraine, in particular, has the resilience it needs to defend itself against acts of Russian aggression, and here we have a very comprehensive training and equipment program,” Cooper said.


At the time, the Russia, Ukraine, and Eurasia official described assistance including Javelin anti-tank missiles, counter-artillery radars, grenade launchers, and Humvees.


Asked if the Russian troop buildup prompted additional military assistance, Cooper said security assistance conversations were ongoing.


“We always talk about Ukraine’s requirements, and we’re always evaluating what they need and what the threat environment is,” she said. “It’s a very active and dynamic conversation and continues as such.”


Kuleba said talk needs to turn into actual military assistance, something Biden reportedly rescinded ahead of the Putin summit.


“Talking is important. However, talking becomes irrelevant when it’s not followed by actions,” the foreign minister said.

    And Hunter Biden and the Big Guy makes millions.

  2. steveegg

    They told me that if I didn’t vote for Biden, the President would make it easier for Soviet Russia to reconquer Ukraine.


  3. Le Roi du Nord

    Hmm, didn’t trump freeze $400 million in aid to Ukraine?

  4. Mar

    And he it released later, moron.
    Lying again.

  5. Le Roi du Nord

    So he did, after he got caught. There was no lie involved. What I said was true. But you lied about the “moron”.

    And Biden may release the funds in the future, so this is all way premature.

  6. Mar

    Pervert Boy, you lied because you did not include mention the whole story.
    You will give the benefit of doubt to a pervert judge who is jail looking for a plea deal but when it comes to President Trump, you constantly lie, don’t tell the whole story etc.
    What a fist class ass hypocrite.

  7. Mar

    Should have wrote Pervert Boy is a first class ass hypocrite.

  8. Le Roi du Nord

    Now I understand, you call anyone that disagrees with you a liar to prop up your failures.

    I didn’t lie about anything. Nor did I make anything up, unlike you.

  9. Mar

    I guess you have never lied here. Bahahaha.
    What an ass. You’re just pissed because got called out again, you uneducated fool liar.

  10. Le Roi du Nord

    Called out on what, mar?

  11. Le Roi du Nord

    And more of the current story, per Politco:

    “The National Security Council directed officials to put the package together, as Washington grew increasingly concerned over a massive Russian military buildup near the border with Ukraine and in the Crimean Peninsula, according to three of the people, who like the others asked not to be named in order to speak candidly about internal discussions. Officials at the State Department and Pentagon worked to assemble the proposal.

    But officials on the National Security Council ended up putting the proposal on hold after Russia announced it would draw down troops stationed near Ukraine and in the lead-up to President Joe Biden’s high-stakes summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    One of the sources said the package is still intact, and could be sent to Ukraine quickly. The Washington Post first reported that the administration considered and has now frozen the package. The fact that National Security Council officials froze the aid and the specific weapons discussed for inclusion in the aid package have not been previously reported.

    I’m glad you like your life living in delusion and hallucinations. Those med you are on make you feel special.

  13. Le Roi du Nord

    What is delusional about the facts, mar?

  14. dad29

    Still looking for a compelling US NATIONAL INTEREST in this Russki-Ukraine battle.

    Anyone? Hello?

  15. Jason

    Remember when our resident idiot (Leroy Saggybottom) was claiming that Trump was dismantling NATO? If he was willing to lie that blatantly, you would think he would be willing to share why he thinks we need to prop up NATO – aka the Russki-Europe battle.

  16. Le Roi du Nord

    Numerous reports from all sorts of sources about trump wanting to defund NATO, pull the US out of NATO, all sorts of trump-style derogatory comments about NATO in general, and countries/leaders specifically. Mattis and Bolton having to keep trump from starting an international crisis.

    All easily available were you curious.

  17. Jason

    So you’re not willing to share? All that nonsense salad you just typed and none of it addresses what Dad or I said. Poor Leroy , can’t keep up when the adults talk.

  18. dad29

    So when England, Germany, Italy, Spain, and France slam the door and yell “I HATE YOU!!!!” at the US for telling them to pony up their dues (contractually obligated dues) it’s an “international incident,” eh?

    My, you are certainly a sensitive ’90’s guy. We already know about State–which is a bunch of old ladies. Are you joining the Old Ladies’ club, LeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy???

  19. Merlin

    The Ukrainians need time to cope with The Big Guy’s skyrocketing influence peddling fees. The days of chump change shit being laundered through family and friends is over. The three monkeys doctrine is the law of the land and fear of consequences no longer exist.

  20. Le Roi du Nord

    Not at all, j. But you will never learn anything if you get others to your work for you. If you are too lazy to do the work independently, why should I enable your sloth even more.

    dud: Since j is all for sharing, show us your source for the, “I HATE YOU!!!!” . Thanks.

  21. Mar

    So once again Pervert Boy Le Roi has nothing.

  22. Le Roi du Nord

    Not at all, mar. Unlike you, I have the ability to think independently, rely on facts, and support education.

  23. Mar

    Pervert Boy Le Roi You’ve got your head so far up your ass you can chew your food twice.

  24. dad29

    “Fact-Free’LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy” asserts that the Teen-Age Girly-Girl Club (a/k/a “NATO”) didn’t need a good horsewhipping from Uncle Sam.

    Perhaps he should support his OWN education.

  25. Le Roi du Nord

    Nope, didn’t do that at all. And you call me “fact-free”.

  26. dad29

    Troll, you taught me how to troll you. And it works.

  27. Le Roi du Nord

    Nah, I couldn’t teach you anything. You think if you just keep spreading the lies and insults you don’t need to know anything. And that is obvious.

  28. Mar

    And another irrelevant post by Pervert Boy Le Roi.

  29. Jason

    4 more posts from Leroy just to prove that he does indeed prefer room temperature oatmeal. Thanks for continuing to prove that when the big thinkers type something, you cannot understand it.

  30. Le Roi du Nord

    No j, oatmeal was never part of the discussion until you brought it up. I prefer mine hot with brown sugar and raisins.
