US wants to prioritize the supply of air defense systems in future aid packages to Ukraine: what prevents it

Biden names priority weapons in future packages for Ukraine

The White House has identified a priority in the formation of future arms lists as part of the US military assistance to Kyiv. It is to strengthen Ukraine's air defense.

This was stated by the White House National Security Council Coordinator John Kirby at a briefing on January 4 in Washington. He also said what was interfering with the White House's intentions.

According to the American official, the ongoing Russian air attacks have convinced the United States that the main item on the list of arms supplies for the Ukrainian side should be air defense systems and equipment.

The US presidential administration plans to implement its intentions as soon as Congress approves new aid packages for Ukraine. Currently, Washington lacks the funding to do so.

According to John Kirby, the weapons from the last military aid package have not yet been delivered to Ukraine. It will arrive in our country "in the coming days and weeks".

As reported by OBOZ.UA:

The White House said that there is no money for Ukraine before the US Congress approves new military aid packages. Before the New Year, US President Joe Biden signed the last aid package for which he has the authority to spend.

After Republicans in the US Congress blocked a package of military and financial aid to Ukraine, the Biden administration found a way out of the impasse. The new idea was to finance Ukraine's fight against Russia at the expense of the aggressor by using Russian gold and foreign exchange reserves frozen at the beginning of the invasion.
