Politico reported that the $300 million the United States allocated to aid Ukraine last week was spent four months ago.

It is noteworthy that the $300 million aid package, which was allocated through the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative (USAI), was included in the $1.2 trillion government financing legislation that US President Joe Biden signed on Saturday.

Politico quoted an American official as saying that this amount that was allocated “is not available for use now,” and that agreeing on it was a symbolic step.

The Pentagon indicated last November that it had “exhausted remaining resources under USAI that could be used to support Ukraine.”

It should be noted that the USAI initiative to support Ukraine was launched in 2014, and this is a separate program from arms supplies from existing American stocks. Note that in order to provide military aid from existing stocks, American lawmakers must approve the allocation of resources to the Pentagon to purchase new weapons and equipment in compensation for what was sent. To Ukraine.

It is worth noting that Republicans in Congress have been obstructing President Joe Biden's administration's initiatives to fund new aid to a number of Washington's allies, including Ukraine, since last October, due to their disapproval of the Biden administration's policies in the field of combating illegal immigration.

In the last step, last February, the Senate approved legislation to allocate $95 billion to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, but House Speaker, Republican Mike Johnson, refused to put the legislation to a vote in the House of Representatives.

The fate of aid to Ukraine and other countries that receive American aid is still unknown in light of the continuing differences between Republicans and Democrats.
