Biden Administration Considers Sending Ukraine Military Equipment Once Bound for Afghanistan
Ukraine has sought helicopters and other military equipment to deter Russia, though White House hasn’t approved plan
WASHINGTON—The Biden administration is considering a plan to redirect helicopters and other military equipment once allocated for the now-defunct Afghan military to Ukraine to help quickly reinforce its defenses amid a build-up of Russian troops near its border, U.S. and Ukrainian officials said.
The equipment is being sought by Ukraine, which discussed it with Pentagon officials, who generally support providing more arms to Ukraine. The National Security Council has yet to approve the arms delivery while the administration seeks a diplomatic solution to get Moscow to back off its military pressure campaign, the U.S. officials said.
Q1: Is US seeking war with Russia by White House Redirecting Military Equipment to Ukraine?
C: No. The USA is attempting to deter Russian attempts at dominance by making such efforts by Russia appear too costly in return for the benefits to be eventually gained by Russia. It is well known that Russia has sought permanent dominance over Ikraine, for economic advantage, benefit and regional dominance this would bring.
Q2: What's the purpose of this, to be at the Russian border?
C: As answered to your first question.
Q3: Will this lead to war and how long will this keep on going teasing and threatening Russia?
C: No. Ukraine cannot prevail in a war with Russia, Russia would destroy the benefit it seeks if it defeated Ukraine in armed conflict, the USA seeks to rebalance the costs and benefits to maintain Ukraine independent of Russia control or dominance. The USA is not threatening or teasing Russia, not vice versa.
Q4: Will the Ukrainian politicians come to their senses and let their people have some peace!?
C: The Ukrainian leaders know this and seek help from the USA, to achieve what we described in the answer to question 3.
