As Ukraine struggles against Russia, the U.S. is promising to send them military aid that would have gone to other allies.

From The Wall Street Journal. The Biden administration will rush the delivery of air-defense interceptors to Ukraine by halting delivery to allied nations, the White House said.

Talk about issues like these on The Community.

President Biden hinted at the move last week during the Group of Seven meeting in Italy, saying, “We let it be known to those countries that are expecting from us air-defense systems in the future that they’re going to have to wait.”

John Kirby, a spokesman for the National Security Council, said on Thursday that Ukraine would get the additional interceptors by the end of summer. …

The decision to redirect U.S. production of air-defense interceptors reflects the limits of the Western defense-industrial base, which has struggled to supply enough armaments to meet global demand. …

While the administration wouldn’t say how many interceptors it would send, a senior U.S. official said Ukraine would be given priority over the next 16 months, and the missiles would be delivered to Kyiv as they come off the assembly line. …

Among the nations that had contracts to buy interceptors and likely will be affected are South Korea and the United Arab Emirates, a congressional official said. The South Korean and U.A.E. Embassies in Washington didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Kirby declined to say how many countries were affected by reprioritizing the air-defense deliveries. He said it wouldn’t affect Israel or Taiwan. …

Over the last several months, air defense has been one of the top requests from Ukraine as it has sought to both defend its front lines and protect its cities and civilian infrastructure. Russia’s targeted strikes against Ukraine’s power infrastructure have cut electricity production by half, leading to blackouts and hasty repairs.

Zelensky intensified calls for more air-defense systems this spring after Russia’s military ramped up bombing of Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city, which sits near Russian territory.

Ukraine’s defense minister, Rustem Umerov, said in an interview earlier this month that his country needs twice the number of Patriot systems and interceptors as it has now for air-defense purposes. …

We pray O Lord, for a ceasefire and a much needed peacetreaty. The Ukrainian war is supplying the devil with tools to increase his territory. May it stop, and bring A Great Awakening to the world. We pray war will be replaced with Jesus as Lord or preparevus for Your return. In Jesus Name, Amen.

It is a shame, really, that this conflict is continuing to go on. It figures, as the war would have never happened in the first place if Trump had been re-elected in 2020. No matter how much aid we sent to Ukraine, nothing has really changed. This war drags on, and people’s lives are affected negatively. Our nation is SO far in debt, and we are sending MORE aid to Ukraine? How insane is that? Lord, may your will prevail, especially in the upcoming election. Thank you, Jesus.

Ukraine is the head of the global new world order hydra, has US genocidal bioweapons labs and adrenochrome torture of children factories, many children taken from Russia, and Zelensky is a pedophile involved in this, and the US should be sending them aid? God’s ways are not man’s ways, God’s thoughts are not man’s thoughts, what is really happening in the Ukraine/Russian Ukraine war?

Dear Lord, I pray that all aid to Ukraine would halt and that money would be redirected to support our military presence here and would provide the medical care that our veterans need.

Heavenly Father l pray that more wisdom will be given to the leaders of America now. I also ask that decision s to send weapons of war to Ukraine will not drag America into a global war.
Thank you Lord that you have plans for America to recover from the wounds that our country is suffering from. In Jesus’s Holy Name

Wrong move. President Biden should be helping all our allies first.

I would much rather see the aid Biden is sending Ukraine for them to keep quiet about Burisma go to our REAL allies, Israel and Taiwan. I pray it does so in the future!

The full truth about what is going on in both Ukraine & Israel is hidden from most people who rely on establishment & government sources. There is NO Christian position to stand in favor sending ammunition, bombs & other weapons of destruction to either nation! Don’t you follow Jesus?! Jesus never supported evil! Learn the whole truth before taking sides out of ignorance. Both wars are globalist acts of aggression that no one in their right mind should be supporting, unless they favor the coming beast system!

    Israel was attacked with a degree of barbarity unseen in centuries.and are taking steps to protect their people. Theirs is not an act of globalist aggression; what their enemies do is. I pray the Lord opens your eyes to this truth!

Matthew 7:3-5 says we are to fix our own problems before we can see well enough to help someone with their problems!
Lord Jesus, help me and my nation to fix our problems so we can focus more clearly to help others! Amen!

Lord Almighty, you are the only one that knows the truth of what is going on in Ukraine. Father, protect the innocent and expose the evil ones. Come in a might way to redeem that nation for your glory in the mighty name of Jesus
