Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin has vowed to do whatever is necessary to give Kiev what it wants.

The Defense secrtary said that the US will move “heaven and earth” to supply Ukraine with what it says it needs to fight Russia.

He made the announcement on Tuesday at a 40-country meeting aimed at getting Washington’s allies on board the mission to prop up Ukraine’s defenses.

RT reports: Convened by the US at its German airbase Ramstein, the meeting’s official purpose was “to help Ukraine win the fight against Russia’s unjust invasion and to build up Ukraine’s defenses for tomorrow’s challenges,” in Austin’s words. “Ukraine clearly believes that it can win and so does everyone here,” he continued, speaking for the many US-allied nations present.

While saying that Washington, as the top-dollar donor to Kiev, will “keep moving heaven and earth so that we can meet” the needs of the Ukrainian government, Austin made it clear other countries would be expected to pony up.

Germany, which had previously pleaded scarcity, insisting its own army lacked sufficient weapons to send the surplus to Ukraine, has had a change of heart, according to Defense Minister Christine Lamprecht, who revealed Berlin would send used Gepard anti-aircraft tanks and purchase new equipment from German arms manufacturers to be shipped directly to the Ukrainian military.

Ukraine orders and Germany pays,” she pledged.

France will provide Caesar cannons, which have a range of up to 40km, while the UK has supplied Starstreak missiles and tanks. The US has stepped up its own heavy weapons deliveries, showering Kiev with howitzers and armored vehicles. 

Austin nevertheless insisted the countries present do more to help. “Ukraine needs our help to win today and they will still need our help when the war is over,” he said. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has claimed his country needs $7 billion per month to compensate for “economic losses” allegedly caused by the Russian offensive. He has also asked for a whopping $50 billion from G7 countries, citing escalating financial demands on his government. The US has already sent over $3 billion in military aid this year alone.

  1. He’s mum’s devout a Catholic who raised him to be too. So like Biden Pelosi Fauci and almost everyone else on power in America. But Loyds no African name and certainly Austin isn’t as any texan can tell you.
    And why are his parents identities concealed from his Wikipedia site.? Clearly the Pope’s behind the Ukrainians like he was behind Catholic Hitler too. The Vatican being the first state on earth to send congalratulations to him on his alleged winning of the Chancllory. Which was really quite unlikely Under Kaiser will helms reign Germqmy was almost totally Lutheran like the Kaiser There was something like 1.9 %Catholics. Hardly likely all those Protestants voted for a Catholic bqck in the 1930s when people were still serious about church. About as likely as 40 million nazis voting fir Jewish Zelensky. But absolutely almost guaranteed Austin would be 8n his position. Odds of his role bring filled by anyone except a Catholic about 95 to 1.

  2. throwing OUR money on the fire won`t change a thing but it will make the world hate america even more than it does
