If you thought America’s involvement in the Russia-Ukraine conflict would be short term you would be dead wrong.
Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks admitted this on Monday.
On Monday, Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks said Pentagon leaders believe the state of Ukraine will survive Russia’s invasion and that the US is preparing to arm the country for years to come.
“I think what we can assure ourselves today is that there will be a country called Ukraine. It will be a sovereign country and that country will have a military that will need to defend it,” Hicks said at the Defense One Tech Summit.
But Hicks said the Pentagon is looking to support Ukraine in the long-term, over the next five, 10, and 20 years into the future.
“We’re certainly thinking through the pieces that go into that with all the lessons we have developing out and aiding, advising and assisting… a partner nation, in this case Ukraine. I do think we are well equipped to do that. So are many of our allies and friends, and we’re working together now to decide what’s the best pathway forward,” she said.
She further described that support would go beyond arms, into permanent training programs: “We’re trying to think through the kinds of both equipment but also the any kind of longer term training and defense establishment efforts that they will need,” she added.
Two days later another billion was sent to Ukraine.
The media’s narrative on this is that if you differ from the mainstream narrative you must be a puppet of Putin. Nothing is further from the truth. Those that are against Putin (like this website) understand that the establishment’s foreign policy is only emboldening Putin. World leaders need to stop playing games with people’s lives and get a peace deal done.
