American Support for Ukraine is Waning

When, on March 14, 2022, Russian Armed Forces invaded Ukraine, leaving the world stunned, everyone anticipated a quick victorious war in favor of Putin. Russian forces were expected to have an easy time, and many Western defense ministries predicted that.

However, things didn’t turn out that way. After a year and a half of war, both sides seem to be holding their ground. The number of casualties and wounded continues to rise, and disruptions in the global economy persist. The risk of the war expanding further is increasing, and there is still no sign of an end to the conflict on the horizon.

But what appears to be running out, however, is the American support for the Ukrainians. This is exactly what Putin seems to be counting on: to wear out the American people, making them reluctant to continue supporting the war, as has happened in so many wars the United States has been involved in, from Vietnam to Iraq, Afghanistan, and now Ukraine.

The difference in this case is that Americans are not directly involved in combat, and American lives are not being lost. However, they are financing it with billions of dollars worth of weaponry. The Biden administration is not doing this out of purely altruistic motives, but rather with the primary goal of weakening Putin’s Russia, further undermining its armed forces and decimating its economy.

However, the money is substantial, and there is no end to the war in sight. Moreover, according to the U.S. Constitution, not a single cent can be spent without approval from Congress, and the mood there is rapidly turning against funding Ukraine.

Specifically, just hours before the exhaustion of the resources needed to keep the country functioning, the Speaker of the House, Republican Kevin McCarthy, had to cancel the additional $6 billion in aid intended for Ukraine to prevent this.

As an example, I mention the statement by Republican Senator Rick Scott of Florida, who stated, “in my state, people want to be helpful to Ukraine, but they also want to be helpful to Americans.”

So, on one hand, we have the government unequivocally supporting Ukraine, and on the other, more and more in Congress reacting negatively. In the event that Trump wins re-election, it will likely result in the termination of U.S. assistance to Ukraine, much to Putin’s delight.

The situation in Congress, which one can expect will deteriorate, will undoubtedly concern the leadership of Ukraine. It is also certain to cause concern for the governments of European countries.
