#ObamaBiden denied all military aid to #Poroshenko fearing that lethal aid would provoke Moscow.
“made possible by Ukraine’s continued progress on adoption of key defense institutional reforms to align Ukraine’s national security architecture with Euro-Atlantic principles”
Today, the war is mostly fought using indirect fire weapons like artillery, rockets, & mortars.
Snipers also engage targets across no man’s land, where the two sides are so close they can shout insults to one another.
Ukraine’s weapons sales abroad do “not affect the rearmament of the Ukrainian army in any way.”

On repeated occasions, American troops have fought opponents armed with American weapons.
And #NancyPelosi also provides congressional funding of #MilitaryAid, aka #ArmsSales to 142 countries; many of them accused of being major human rights violators.
Washington would now send lethal defensive weapons systems to Kiev, ostensibly to improve Ukraine’s ability to defend itself.
Russia has much more at stake in the outcome than the U.S., so the former will always be more willing to make sacrifices to achieve its desired political end state.
