US Aid Delay and its Impact

Stoltenberg acknowledged that while European NATO members and Canada have already contributed significantly to Ukraine’s military assistance, the United States’ prolonged decision-making process has hindered immediate aid delivery. He emphasized that the US Congress’s delay in approving an aid package directly affects the situation on the battlefield in Ukraine.

Stoltenberg emphasized, “Every week we wait, more and more people are killed on the battlefield in Ukraine.

Urgent Call for Action

The NATO Secretary General stressed the urgent need for proactive decision-making, stating, “It’s not just about making the right decisions; it’s about making them proactively and as soon as possible. It’s urgent.” He reiterated that the US has a crucial responsibility to fulfill its promise of support to Ukraine.

Stoltenberg urged, “It is not me who should advise the US Congress on how to pass laws. All I can say is that the US has a vital and urgent task to decide on a package of assistance to Ukraine because it needs this support.

International Commitment vs US Response

Highlighting the disparity in international responses, Stoltenberg pointed out that Europe and Canada have already fulfilled their commitments to aid Ukraine. He emphasized that it is now imperative for the US to act swiftly to provide the necessary support.

US Senate’s Recent Action

While the US Senate has voted in favor of a package bill containing US$61 billion for Ukraine, the US House of Representatives has delayed voting on the bill until the end of February, as it is currently in recess. This delay further underscores the urgent need for the US to expedite the approval process for aid to Ukraine.

In conclusion, Stoltenberg’s impassioned appeal serves as a poignant reminder of the human cost of delayed aid. As the situation in Ukraine remains dire, swift action from the US Congress is essential to prevent further loss of life.NATO, Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg, US Congress, Ukraine, military assistance, aid package, European NATO members, Canada, US Senate, US House of Representatives
