Yes, F! putin's feeling. Simi  'don't provoke putin' policy will be seen as weakness by putin and weakness provokes putin. Let the words of McCain sink in. Biden failed here by giving enough to defend for a little while, and half baked for an offensive.

ya, ya,ya, after Russia advancing at an accelerated rate, now they wake up liao. Hope they have the political will this time to follow thru and gives Ukraine ALL they need. They do know now that Ukraine has lesser number of men now then before fall of AvDiivka. A missed opportunity by Biden Admin,  I hope they can regain in this wake up mode.

Senate passes $95 billion package sending aid to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan after months of delay

The legislation next goes to President Joe Biden to sign it into law. Its passage is a significant victory for the US president, congressional Democrats and Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell, who long pushed to send aid to Ukraine even as the right wing of his party increasingly soured on support for Kyiv.

The final vote was 79-18. Fifteen Republicans voted with three Democrats against the bill. Forty-eight Democrats and 31 Republicans voted for the bill.

this could also mean the US is shifting focus to Pacific.

they probably feel Europeans are really more than sufficient to deal with Russia. But the pacific is going to be a hugely US dominated war if it comes to that

Interesting. 

I was wondering why US decided to sell F35 to Greece after what happened with Turkey. 

Turns out Greece has a substantial amount of newer S300 systems that will  be handed over to Ukraine in return for F35s. I think US will insist they hand over all the S300s as they don't want anyone using the S300/400s to build a radar picture of the F35 🤔

Russia managed to exploit a weakness in Ukraine defense. Not easy to be a commander in such situation.

The sneaky old fox has already authorized ATACMS back in March, and Ukrainians had fired them on two occasions. 😁

If you were wondering how those long range target were possible...

  • Ukraine first used these missiles on the morning of 17 April to strike a Russian airfield in occupied Crimea, some 165 km away from the front line in Ukraine, the source said. It is also claimed that ATACMS were utilised in an attack on occupied Berdiansk, Zaporizhzhia Oblast (where explosions were reported on 15 April). 

 

White House explains why US sent Ukraine ATACMS missiles back in March

Jake Sullivan, National Security Adviser to the US President, has confirmed media reports that Ukraine has already received ATACMS missiles and explained why the weapons were handed over back in March.

Source: Jake Sullivan during a briefing at the White House on 24 April, European Pravda reports

Quote: "That shipment started moving in March as part of the PDA [a mechanism that allows the US president to transfer weapons from army stockpiles – ed.]  that the president authorised on 12 March, and those missiles have arrived in Ukraine."

Details: Sullivan said that in February, US President Joe Biden ordered that Ukraine be provided with "a significant number of ATACMS missiles for use inside Ukraine’s sovereign territory".

Biden's adviser noted that Washington made the decision on ATACMS after Russia used North Korean ballistic missiles against Ukraine and began massive attacks on civilian infrastructure.

Sullivan also reiterated that the main reason for not providing Ukraine with ATACMS had been "because of readiness concerns" [US combat readiness – ed.], but these were overcome by ordering a significant batch of the missiles from the manufacturers.

"And as a result, we can move forward with providing ATACMS while also sustaining the readiness of US forces," he concluded.

Background:

Reports in the US media said, citing sources, that Ukraine received ATACMS as part of a previous US$300 million military aid package announced in March, and has used them at least twice against Russian targets in temporarily occupied Crimea and Zaporizhzhia Oblast.

As reported on 24 April, US President Joe Biden signed legislation enacted by Congress that provides for about US$61 billion in additional military and economic aid to Ukraine, as well as help for other US allies.
