Nation on Deaths Doorstep…

Resisting Russia’s aggressive military incursion for over two years, Ukrainian soldiers, allies of the US, urgently seek increased American military aid to thwart Putin’s advancing forces, warning of imminent national destruction without it.

Putin’s Russia launched Europe’s largest war since World War II on February 24, 2022, assaulting democratic Ukraine from multiple fronts with a massive troop presence of 200,000.

Arriving in Washington DC ahead of the State of the Union Address, Ukrainian military representatives implore America for additional support, underscoring that failure to act swiftly would spell doom for Ukraine.

“Without that support, our fate is sealed,” stressed Yuliia Paievska from the Ukrainian Medical Forces Command, emphasizing the gravity of the situation.

Recent reports from the front lines paint a dire picture, indicating Ukraine’s gradual retreat and the loss of crucial territories to Russian forces.

Debate surrounds the potential impact of increased military aid on Ukraine’s ability to counter Russian aggression, with questions about its efficacy looming large.

Despite already receiving over $100 billion in military assistance from the international community, including substantial contributions from the US and its NATO allies, the Biden administration urges Congress to approve an additional $60 billion package swiftly to bolster Ukraine’s defense.

While Congress deliberates on this crucial decision, Ukrainian National Guard 2nd Lt. Dmytro Finashyn asserts the indispensable value of every weapon provided, emphasizing their critical role in Ukraine’s defense.

Although Russia has poured approximately $200 billion into its war effort and faced significant troop losses, its territorial gains remain limited and slow.

Veteran Oleksandr Batalov of the Ukrainian Armed Forces underscores the urgency of swift action, emphasizing that every moment of delay costs precious human lives, stressing the necessity for immediate and decisive support to Ukraine.
