The US House Armed Services Committee supports the immediate transfer of lethal military equipment to Ukraine. This is stated by the Committee Ranking member Mike Rogers and House Foreign Affairs Committee Lead Republican Michael McCau.
“The United States should not wait for the Kremlin to cross anymore ‘territorial red lines’ in Ukraine before sending additional military assistance to Kyiv. Instead, the Administration should send this lethal aid immediately to deter further Russian aggression," the statement reads.
According to the committee, Biden administration has time and time again chosen to appease the Kremlin at the expense of Ukraine. That is why the committee advocates the immediate transfer of lethal weapons to Ukraine.
As we reported earlier, the Biden Administration halted a package of lethal military equipment to Ukraine that was put together in response to Russia’s military escalation in and around Ukraine this spring.
Later they denied this information, but admitted that the non-provided backup package still exists.
The package included short-range air defense systems, small arms and other anti-tank weapons.
