Russia Dismisses US Aid Package for Ukraine, Calls Situation Unfavorable for Kiev

Russia has downplayed the significance of the latest $61 billion aid package from the United States to Ukraine, asserting that it will not alter the military dynamics in favor of Kiev. This comes as the US Congress prepares for a crucial vote on the major military assistance package for Ukraine.

During a press conference, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov emphasized that the US funding would not impact the ongoing conflict's frontlines. He stated, “It won’t in any way influence the development of the situation on the front. All experts now assert that the situation on the front is very unfavorable for the Ukrainian side.”

Peskov also criticized Ukraine's financial burden and described it as “a favorite colonial policy of the United States,” implying that Ukraine is fighting not only for aid but also against mounting debt.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has previously warned that the country could lose its war against Russia if the US Congress delays the aid package any further, attributing the months-long delay to the loss of Ukrainian lives and territory.

US House Speaker Mike Johnson has indicated his intention to advance the stalled aid package, which has faced delays due to political disagreements within the Republican Party.

As the conflict continues, Ukraine relies heavily on Western support, with the US being its primary backer throughout the ongoing conflict against Russia. Ukrainian leaders have urgently called for the immediate release of the aid.

President Joe Biden has committed to signing the aid package into law promptly once it clears Congress, despite existing differences over the plan's intricacies.

In a recent claim, Ukrainian forces reportedly targeted a major Russian airfield in Crimea, causing damage to military equipment. Crimea, formerly part of Ukraine, came under Russian sovereignty following a 2014 referendum. The US and EU refused to recognize the referendum results and imposed sanctions on Moscow in response.

Ukraine's military intelligence confirmed the attack on the Dzhankoi airbase, located in northern Crimea, stating that the operation was “successful” and resulted in damage to radars and air defense systems.

Russia initiated its "special military operation" in Ukraine on February 24, 2022, leading to heightened tensions between the two nations.
