Europe Is Impatient For $60 Billion In Ukraine Aid From America Or Something

There is a solution for this. They can spend their own money!

Europe is ‘very impatient’: New ambassador raises alarm over stalled $60 billion in Ukraine aid

When Jovita Neliupšien? left her home in Lithuania for Washington, she brought along a closet’s worth of business wear – and left behind the emergency ”go” bag that many of her countrymen keep nearby in case of a Russian attack.

“You have to always have money, gasoline and so forth” on hand, said Neliupšien?, the European Union’s new ambassador to the U.S. “Because it’s literally on your doorstep.”

Now, as Europe’s top diplomat in America, Neliupšien? is working to instill in congressional leaders the sharp urgency that’s felt on Europe’s eastern border, as a $60 billion American aid package for Ukraine lies stalled in the Republican-controlled House.

Europe could pony up the money themselves, right? If they’re that concerned. Heck, they don’t even have to raise $60 billion. What is in the package?

  • $20 billion to replenish US weapons stocks after giving it all away to Ukraine for them to do….nothing
  • $14 billion for Ukraine to go out and buy their own weapons from US companies
  • $15 billion for “U.S. support including military training, intelligence sharing, increased presence in Eastern Europe, and other activities.” Isn’t training a little late since we’re 2 years into the war?
  • $8 billion for “direct budget support”, meaning we are paying for Ukraine lawmakers and government operations. That’s silly
  • $3.2 which really goes to keeping Ukrainian businesses afloat

Why can’t Europe allocate their own money?

With American aid caught in the fist of the House Freedom Caucus, the E.U. and its 27 members have pledged an additional $50 billion to Ukraine, bringing European support to $150 billion since Russia first invaded two years ago. European leaders have pledged to buy desperately-needed ammunition for Kyiv as U.S. shipments have dwindled. The U.S. has so far given Ukraine $75 billion in humanitarian, financial and military support.

Well, they can reach deep into their pockets. At the end of the day, Ukraine can. Not. Win. It’s a shame, but, that’s the reality. They cannot kick Russia out, unless they go scorched earth, run a guerrilla war like happened in Afghanistan, but, then Russia will go scorched earth as they leave, destroying everything.

“We need two feet on the ground, one on one side of the Atlantic, another on the other side, over there, if we want to have success and to see this war over,” Neliupšien? said.

While the aid money remains stalled on Capitol Hill, Washington and Brussels are both working to find ways to seize Russian government assets ? and use the funds to rebuild Ukraine.

The Senate is set to vote on the Repo Act, which would authorize the government to seize $5 billion in frozen Russian government assets held inside the U.S.

Have at it. Fortunately, the Ukrainian government is shady and happy to put the money in their own pockets. Before giving them anymore money from American taxpayers we need an accounting of where the previous money went.

Today, Neliupšien? is adamant that failure to support Ukraine will only lead to more invasions. On Wednesday, leaders in Transnistria, a Kremlin-backed breakaway region of Moldova bordering western Ukraine, requested Moscow’s protection – an apparent invitation for more Russian troops to deploy there.

“Other authoritarian or dictatorial leaders are looking at what is happening, and if Putin can outlast us, then the consequences can be quite global,” Neliupšien? said.

Good thing Biden didn’t show weakness and fecklessness starting with his Afghanistan withdrawal. Moldova is not a NATO member, either.

    Europe needs to police their own problems and stop looking for America to protect them..
    All that is happening now has been bought on by them and their lack of leadership and wanting to spend on their own defense.

  2. H says:

    Teach you really should do some basic research before asking “why don’t they reach really deep into their pockets .. ”
    Well the answer is trey have and will continue to do so. They have given 96 billion so far. And other countries are helping also
    Israel (God,’s own chosen people!) Have agreed to resume military aid the first being advanced front line radars. Before Oct 7 Israeli ” volunteers” were also fighting in the Ukraine foreign brigade. Putin just announced that he was inviting Hamas to Moscow for high level strategic security talks. They also support Syria which is the transit country for arms going to gezbiklag. Teach, wake up! Putin is a bad guy, a bulky, do t let him take Ukraine. .

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      Every guy here knows Putin is a bad guy. The problem is you fail to understand that so is Zelenskyyy. So are all the moslem killers you hold in high esteem. Btw, so is the SOB who let the border open so the murdering Venezuelan could come in and kill Laken Riley (say her name!).

      You need to stop acting like your team is Lily white and completely pure, it isn’t. In fact your team is even worse than our team. You need to take a deep look inside yourself and decide how much corruption, law fair, open borders and murder you’re willing to accept to win an election. In your case it may be unlimited but we’re not gonna take being pissed on forever.

      You may think that were nothing better than white Christian supremacists but we happen to think that we’re patriotic Americans and believe in our constitution as it was written not as you have altered it. And we don’t believe in lawfare north throwing our political opponents in the jail before an election Nora cheating and election and then refusing to do a audit and recap.

      What do you have set up for this election? Perhaps 95 million votes?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Yes, dumbass. We already have 105 million votes filled out. Bill Gates can switch votes on machines in a NY minute. Voting is fruitless. The Republicans should stay home in November. It’s a waste of your valuable time.

        Wasn’t it Trump who let in 100s of thousands of Venezuelans??

        We all know that both parties are corrupt and the system is broken. The working class is getting reamed and the leisure class as doing great.

        The difference right now is the God-awful Donald J Trump. He is corrupt (91 counts) but has no concern for America or Americans. You guys are more than just white Christian nationalists but you are white Christian nationalists which is ant-American. Trump has no ethics. He is the perfect vehicle for the far-right at this time. He is willing to hate those you hate! And he’s good at it.

  3. Dana says:

    If Ukraine losing the war is really the existential crisis for all of Western democracy that the neocons and warmongers claim it to be, why are they just asking for money and war materiel? Why are they not telling us that the only way we can be sure that Russia won’t win is to send American and NATO combat troops to fight the Russians on the ground?

  4. H says:

    Teach days ” please give Putin whatever he wants and stop sanctioning him. He has nuclear weapons!!”

    • Brother John says:

      Sometimes, “h” and Rimjob are so wrong and stupid — obviously stupid — that I can’t help thinking the webmaster is just posting obnoxious garbage just to boost traffic and comment counts. No intelligent, literate person can honestly be this fucking dumb.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:


        Mr H makes the valid point that Mr Teach and the MAGAts want to “give Putin whatever he wants” ’cause NUKES and WWIII!!!

        Otherwise you make a strong argument, LOFL, putz. And I scold you for insulting Mr Teach calling him not intelligent or literate, and being fucking dumb!

        The usually intelligent and literate Mr Dana uses the either/or right-wing device that the West has only two options in Ukraine – surrender or nuclear war with Russia. He “buttresses” his argument (such as it is) by claiming Russia’s annihilation of Ukraine is believed existential for the West. It’s very damaging but hardly existential. Mr Dana also argues that Russia will just stop after they conquer and absorb Ukraine – that Moldova, Georgia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Poland have nothing to fear. But Putin and Russia tend to nibble on their neighbors – S. Ossetia, Abkhazia, both of Georgia – beginning in 2014, Crimea, Donbas, Luhansk and the full invasion of Ukraine. Putin plays the long game, much like state level Repubs – must be authoritarian patience!

        Estonia, a NATO member, has a significant number of ethnic Russians and is a favored target for having a region or regions “annexed”. The North Baltic coast of Estonia has some 25% of its population being Russian, and Narva just over the border from Russia, supplies much of the electrical power for Estonia, the other 2 Baltic states as well as parts of Russia! Putin could annex Narva, which is some 500 feet from Russia, tomorrow to test how NATO would respond to such a tiny incursion. After all, pushing back against Putin and Russia could cause WWIII and NUKES.

          Vladimir Putin is 71 years, 4 months, and 24 days old; the “long game” isn’t one that he can wisely play.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Mr Putin has support within his cadre. When he dies the power will pass to another authoritarian, maybe even worse than Vlad the Invader.

            Our fascist from Fayette underestimates the perfidy of Russia today. There is an strong undertow to get Union back together!!

          • Brother John says:

            There is a point to be made here — Putin plays the “long game” inasmuch as he does what he believes advances and protects the interests of Russians. You may or may not agree with his objectives, but that explains his actions as he sees them.

            This is in contrast to the Democrat party, who care nothing for the welfare of American citizens and seek only to see them impoverished and subjugated.

            This is also in contrast to elected Republicans, who want nothing more than their breadcrumbs and to avoid being called raycissss by garbage people.

        • Brother John says:

          Putin could annex Narva (…) tomorrow to test how NATO would respond

          I’d say he’s got his answer, no? NATO, at the behest of what passes for American “leadership,” will run their currencies into the ground, impose pointless sanctions that create blocs of alliances against themselves, arrest political opponents at home, empty their armories, raid their treasuries, and frantically try to cover up the fact that they’ve been playing fuck-fuck games in the countries in question for 15 years.

          This is not 1947. Neither Ukraine nor Estonia are the Fulda gap. NATO has outlived its usefulness, proven again and again by the fact that so many member nations won’t contribute to their own defense.

          Russia could have been a part of NATO instead of a fucking boogeyman. We could have had friendly relations with Russia, had all you bubbleheaded idiots not carried on with the russiarussiarussia hoax year after year. But noooooooo.

          And “h” is an idiot. His commentary is marginally literate and you’re just full of shit.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Blojob typed: so many (NATO) member nations won’t contribute to their own defense

            You are so full of shit.

            As of 2023 every NATO contributes to its own defense. Over 50% hit the 2% of GDP recommendation.

            Luxembourg spends the least at 0.72% of GDP. Poland the most at nearly 4%.

            NATO also recommends that each member spend at least 20% of their defense expenditures on equipment. All members hit the mark. Poland, Finland, Luxembourg and Hungary spend 50% of their defense dollars on equipment.

            You claim NATO has “outlived its usefulness”. What NATO nation has Russia invaded? They’ve invaded former Soviet era nations of Ukraine and Georgia. Belarus rolled over for Russia.

            Without NATO how would the world respond to Russian excursions into the Baltics? United Nations admonitions? LOL. Poland?

  5. Professor Hale says:

    If the Biden Administration didn’t squash the peace treaty 2 years ago, there wouldn’t be any need to “give Putin everything he wants”. Diplomacy is reasonable people working together to avoid catastrophe. The Biden administration (Blinken, Kerry, Clinton, Yeltzin, Rice, Obama) all seem to not just want war with Russia, but desperate to start one, even when peace was within their grasp.

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      Diplomacy is reasonable people working together to avoid catastrophe.

      When people like trump do that, actually try and work together with the Russians all they get from people like Elwood and H is called names and accused of being Putin’s friend. They constantly refer to trump as putin’s friend even though it was trump who got the best deals out of Russia and kept us out of war. So far Biden has cost over a million lives with this nonsense in the Russia and Ukraine. Basically that makes Biden a genocidal maniac. But we can’t say that only Democrats can say that about us. They can sit there and kill a million babies in the womb a year and call us genocidal maniacs because we side with Israel. And believe it or not they think they’re righteous!

      • Professor Hale says:

        Maybe if we stopped interfering in Russian elections, trying to overthrow their government, supporting a coup in Ukraine, and reneging on the last three deals we had with them, Russia might trust us enough to negotiate another deal. The democratic party administrations controlling our country, even under the Trump administration, has made the USA the bad guys globally. We are worse than the Nazis.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Professor Not of History typed: We are worse than the Nazis.

          The Nazis murdered several million children, women and men for being Jewish, non-white, Roma, homosexual, Polish, mentally ill, disabled, Soviets and Jehovah’s Witnesses. Millions more were persecuted.

          Just as the American nuRight have been trying rehabilitate Russian authoritarianism, some have started to point out that “the Nazis weren’t all bad”.

          “We are worse than the Nazis.”

          With MAGAt planning to exterminate Blacks, Hispanics, LGBTQs, liberals, atheists and Muslims they are forced to start downplaying the horror of their plans. The Nazis weren’t THAT bad.

          We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are NOT created equal, the Chosen Ones are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among the Chosen Men, deriving their just powers from God. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the Chosen Men to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them that are White and Christian. Lesser beings will be invited to leave as they will no longer be entitled to the Rights of Men.

            Cumjob, once again with insightful precision, slices straight to the heart. I am reconsidering my life.

            Do YOU, Cumjob, believe that Americans today are worse than the Nazis?

  6. James Lewis says:

    Chicken Little Man

    Mr Putin has support within his cadre. When he dies the power will pass to another authoritarian, maybe even worse than Vlad the Invader.

    If that’s the case and since Ukraine can’t win without our help but can keep Putin from winning…

    You’re looking at an endless war.

    Is that what you want??

    • CarolAnn says:

      You’re looking at an endless war. Is that what you want??

      Of course that’s what he wants Democrats love wars. Haven’t you noticed Howard’s been rooting to get us into an actual shooting war with Russia since the beginning? Just the idea of hundreds of thousands of white men dying gives them an erection especially knowing most of them are Christians. He’s an evil mother face it. Plus it gets his really moving to thank all those Nazis in the Ukraine kicking ass and taking names.

      There’s an election coming up James Lewis, nothing helps Democrats more in an election than wars. They can run around screaming don’t change horses in the middle of the stream and all kinds of other silly sayings you combine that with stuffing ballot boxes vote harvesting doing 20 votes for every old person in a home they have victory in their eyes. Then they can get one with destroying the rest of the United states. There are still areas that need complete and total destruction like land ownership and property rights.

        Hubert Humphrey was unavailable for comment.

        Actually, quick, visibly successful wars normally help the party in the White House, though the elder George Bush found out that that is not always true, but lengthy wars, wars in which little or no progress is obvious, tend to not make the voters happy.

  7. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Mr Teach believes Ukraine should surrender to Putin, typing: At the end of the day, Ukraine can. Not. Win. It’s a shame, but, that’s the reality.

    They are unlikely to repel the Russian invasion without help. Tens of thousands of Ukrainian soldiers and civilians have died. Millions have been displaced, fleeing to surrounding nations, and westward inside Ukraine. It’s what people do when their lives are threatened.

    MAGAts such as Mr Teach have fallen in goosestep behind their leader who is dominated by Putin, and who hates Zelenskyy and Ukraine for not bending to Trump’s desires. Trump holds a grudge and demands that he be obeyed. To disagree is to be disloyal.

    America Firsters (MAGAts) feel Russia invading Ukraine is none of our business. MAGAts whine about communists everywhere! But who is closer to the vile aspects of communism than Vladimir Putin who spent half his life a KGB communist?
