The United States has about $5.9 billion left for military aid to Ukraine. This was stated by Pentagon representative Pat Ryder, Radio Liberty reports.
"At the moment, we have approximately $4.8 billion in renewed Presidential Drawdown Authority (a mechanism that allows the president to transfer military materials from US Armed Forces bases and warehouses without consulting Congress within limits set by Congress for maximum amounts). of such supplies.- Ed.), and $1.1 billion in available resources to replenish American stockpiles," he said.
According to him, without additional funding, the US Department of Defense may soon reach a point beyond which it will not be able to maintain the current level of security assistance to Ukraine.
"This situation emphasizes the importance of further support for Ukraine from the side of Congress at a critical moment in its campaign to defend its freedom and counter Russian aggression," the Pentagon official said.
Ryder noted that the US Department of Defense's spending decisions will be based on many factors, including Ukraine's immediate needs, availability of equipment, and the ability of the US to replenish its resources.
