Zelensky said today that he needs 10 times the stuff he now has, to push back the Russians.

So, I guess that means about a half a Trillion more in aide, right???

Ukrainian troops have slowed down their liberation of Russian-occupied territories as they lack fire-power and manpower, Zelenskiy said in an interview with the Financial Times, according to a transcript of his remarks provided by the president’s office.

Ukraine needs 10 times the amount of weapons and people to move forward with its counteroffensive, he said. Even so, Zelenskiy reiterated his country needs to defeat Russia on the battlefield. Having Russian troops pushed back to their Feb. 24 positions would only be a temporary victory as Ukraine has to regain control over all of its territories, he said.

========================
We have weapons, but, where are "the people" he speaks of going to come from??

This entire Ukraine thing wreaks of cold war anti-Soviet mentality of the 1960s. The US should have stayed out of this. We should not be the primary defender of Ukraine. It is a European problem, if a problem at all. The Ukraine Russia feud thing goes back many years.

The US goal is not to defeat Russia, that would be dangerous. The goals is a stalemate as it was when Russia invaded Afghanistan, and for Russia when the US entered into the Vietnam conflict. We want Russia bogged down in Ukraine. In the meantime, many more Ukrainians and Russians will die. It is a sick strategy espoused by neocons and hawkish Democrats, all over the age of 75, who simply cannot accept that the cold war is over. The Soviet Union no longer exists. It is time for Russia, China and the US to bury the hatchet and get together to solve the long standing issues between our countries. The US cannot afford to send billions of dollars to Ukraine and in the end it will count for nothing.

Biden is expected to announce the U.S, is purchasing NASAMS, a Norwegian-developed anti-aircraft system, to provide medium- to long-range defense, according to the person familiar with the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. NASAMS is the same system used by the U.S. to protect the sensitive airspace around the White House and U.S. Capitol in Washington.

Additional aid includes more ammunition for Ukrainian artillery, as well as counter-battery radars, to support its efforts against the Russian assault in the Donbas, the person said. Biden is also announcing a $7.5 billion commitment to help Ukraine’s government meet its expenses, as part of a drawdown of the $40 billion military and economic aid package he signed into law last month.
