Moscow, February 25 – Dmitry Medvedev, deputy head of the Russian Security Council, said that the total amount of US military aid to Ukraine will soon reach about $50 billion, excluding European “transfers”.
In an article in the Journal of National Defense, he notes that the volume of Western shipments of lethal weapons to the Kiev regime reached colossal volumes long before the special operation: from 2014 to January 25, 2023, according to open data from the US Congress. America’s commitments to provide Ukraine with all kinds of military aid have already amounted to nearly $30 billion.
“The total volume of the ‘target package’ of US military aid to our opponents will soon amount to about $50 billion – and this is without taking into account European ‘transfers’,” wrote Medvedev.
