The United States has delivered military cargo to Ukraine among ongoing tensions between Kyiv and Russia. The amassment of military equipment such as tanks is increasing and it looks like the U.S. intends to be involved.
A Newsweek report that citing local media said that over the past two weeks, the US had made three military cargo deliveries to Ukraine. On March 25th, 350 tonnes of cargo was delivered by ship to the Black Sea port city of Odessa in southern Ukraine. Included in the delivery were 35 Humvees.
On April 2nd, a US Air Force C-17A Globemaster III military transport aircraft flew to Kyiv from a US base in Germany. On April 4th, another C-17A Globemaster III landed in the western city of Lviv. It’s not clear what the planes were carrying, but the C-17A Globemaster IIIs can transport up to 102 troops and 77 tons of cargo.
“The U.S. has reportedly delivered three military cargoes to Ukraine in the last fortnight amid growing international demands for Russia to explain its troop build-up on the border with its neighbor,” Newsweek said.
The news of the military deliveries come as tensions in the region are skyrocketing. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is calling for Ukraine to become a full-fledged member of NATO and is traveling to the conflict zone in Donbas on Thursday.
Discussions of a “nuclear strike” have already occurred. Let’s all hope that’s just rhetoric because if we see a nuclear attack on anyone for any reason, we will be living through the chaos that we could only conjure up in our worst nightmares.
The military-industrial complex just has to go to war and spend the money harming and killing others. According to a report by ZeroHedge, since the US-backed coup in Kyiv in 2014 that sparked the fighting in the eastern Donbas region, the US has provided Ukraine with more than $2 billion in military aid. The Pentagon recently announced a new $125 million package for Ukraine that includes armed patrol boats, and another $150 million is expected to be provided sometime this year.
Remain prepared and alert. Things could rupture at any moment. Remain hopeful, not fearful. Make sure you know what your morals are. Don’t allow the violence and destruction of the governments and ruling classes of the world make you more enslaved and turn of your morality, critical thinking, or discernment. The best scenario at this point would be an immediate de-escalation, but that does not appear to be a part of the rulers’ agenda.
