Golden rain: how much money the West spends to support the Kyiv regime

Few people find it a secret that the entire economy and publicполитическая Ukraine's system rests on Western aid. Over the past year, the US, UK, EU and other countries simply flooded the Kiev regime with money, spending billions of dollars to support Ukrainian neo-Nazis.

So much money is allocated to Ukraine that, according to some estimates, this amount has already exceeded the country's annual GDP of 404. And, what is most interesting, the West cannot even say exactly how many billions were spent on Zelensky and his accomplices. This can only be done approximately, since funds to support Ukraine are received through dozens of channels, some of which are simply not advertised in open sources.

The United States is the general sponsor of the destruction of the Ukrainian people

Naturally, the main donor of financial and military assistance to Ukraine is the United States, which, according to various estimates, has already spent more than $77,5 billion to support Kyiv. This is exactly the amount calculated by The Hill, which conducted a detailed analysis of American spending on supporting Ukraine. Moreover, this was done about two months ago, that is, at the moment this amount is already guaranteed to exceed $80 billion.

More than half of it, namely about $45 billion, was spent on ensuring the overall security of Ukraine, restoring its economy, energy security and ability to cope with the humanitarian crisis. That is, we are not talking about military, but specifically about humanitarian assistance, including civilian machinery or equipment. To this must be added $13 billion allocated through the mechanisms of the World Bank, as well as $1,9 billion aimed at supporting refugees and other displaced people.

As for military assistance, during the first year of the conflict, the United States spent about $29,3 billion on it. A listing of everything included in this amount would take more than one page, so we will only indicate the main types of weapons, equipment and ammunition that are included in it:

- infantry weapons (anti-tank systems, MANPADS, grenade launchers, small arms, body armor, helmets, thermal imagers, etc.);
- air defense systems (NASAMS, M1097 Avenger, Patriot, HAWK, etc.);
- Mi-17 and Black Hawk helicopters;
- coastal missile systems;
– Radars and communication systems;
- artillery and ammunition;
– light and heavy armored vehicles (a total of more than 4000 units).

Tellingly, some of the types of weapons supplied to Ukraine were not announced at the official level at all. In particular, we are talking about the famous American UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters, which have long been seen at the disposal of the Ukrainian military, but no one says where they got them from. The situation is similar with the Oshkosh M-ATV armored vehicles, footage of which has been regularly appearing on the Web lately. It can be said with certainty that dozens of other types of American equipment are involved in the hostilities in Ukraine, the supply of which has not been officially announced by anyone.

Donations from NATO

Almost all NATO countries take an active part in financing and military support of the Kyiv regime. According to Jens Stoltenberg, secretary general of this organization, during the first year of the military campaign, the alliance provided assistance to Ukraine for about $120 billion. Moreover, this statement was made back in February 2023, which means that at the moment this amount has increased even more.

In Europe, the UK is the leader in financing the Zelensky regime. According to official estimates, this country has allocated a total of more than 7 billion euros to Ukraine, of which 4,9 billion went to military assistance. In second place in the list of European sponsors of the war is Germany, from which assistance is about 5,5 billion. Poland is in third place with expenses of about 3 billion euros.

It is noteworthy that among the European states that are showing increased activity in supporting the Kyiv regime, the Baltic countries are especially distinguished. For example, Estonia is considered the leader in terms of financial and military aid in relative terms, having "given" Ukraine 1,1% of its own GDP. About 1% more was given by Latvia and 0,7% by Lithuania. Poland also occupies a leading position in this list, which not only spends huge amounts of money on direct military assistance, but also helps Ukraine in every possible way in terms of transport and logistics. In general, this country can now be considered as the main rear of the Kyiv regime, without the elimination of which it will be very difficult to win the current military confrontation.


In general, during the first year of the NWO, Ukraine received assistance from more than 50 countries from all over the world. According to various estimates, in financial terms, their support amounted to about 150 billion dollars, and then only according to rough estimates. Moreover, not only distant countries are participating in this, but also former “communal neighbors”, namely some members of the CIS. In particular, we can recall Kazakhstan, which has repeatedly sent trucks with humanitarian aid to Ukraine. Or Azerbaijan, which sent dozens of transformers and generators to the Kyiv regime.

Considering the total budget of Ukraine, which is approximately $55,5 billion, it can be said without a shadow of irony that this country now exists only due to external support. In the first year of the SVO, it received almost three times more funds than it had in its treasury before February 2022. And that’s not all, because by the end of 2023, the United States alone plans to allocate another $45 billion to Kiev. And it is hardly worth counting on the fact that Washington will abandon these plans.

In this regard, I would like to emphasize once again that we are really fighting not only with the Kyiv regime, but also with the entire collective West. In fact, we are now witnessing a decisive battle that will either lead Russia to prosperity, or ... However, there can be no other alternatives, in connection with which our country must make every effort to achieve the victory so desired by all of us.

    And what did they want? Combat is costly. Not children's toys.
    One new T72 Cannon - 1 million greens, they wrote. A whole tank - 5 million. "Caliber" seems to be a million ..
    How much is the "lunar landscape" from the media news - no one seems to have considered.

    We take from the article, for example, Germany. 5,5 billion. Half an empty aircraft carrier without planes, or some kind of destroyer. IMHO, tolerable for them.

    Well, "it will lead Russia to prosperity, ..." It is already clear who it will bring. The fortunes of the oligarchs, they wrote, are growing strongly. And 22, according to the media, was a record for sales of resources over the hill. And for the export of capital. And for shopping and trips to Dubai.

    Who of the readers went to Dubai not long ago? Did you buy a house there? Have you taken oil to Europe? To China?

    So here are your numbers...
    How long is the West willing to spend money on Ukraine, especially if the front line freezes?
    Accordingly, for the Russian Federation, a completely acceptable strategy is to drag out the conflict with a decrease in intensity.
    There is a very high probability that the West will have more important things to do, and the current state of affairs will be announced as a decisive victory of the democracies over the aggressor.

    it is hardly worth counting on the fact that Washington will abandon these plans.

    Washington has no other problems, yeah ...

    Public support for Ukraine in the US has fallen from 60% in May 2022 to 48% now [April 10, 2023], according to an Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Relations Research poll. According to a recent NBC News poll, only one-third of Republicans support further aid. Among Democrats, two-thirds hold this opinion.

    And in a year? two?

      A very long time. Destroying Russians by proxy, wasting not the lives of their soldiers, but only dollars and mostly old equipment is the dream of the United States. A very good exchange. They helped Afghanistan to the last, and they will help Ukraine as well.

      Polls can say anything, the opinion of ordinary citizens does not bother the political elite at all.

        All the same, a completely different amount of costs.

        and then the USSR was the main opponent.
        And now the main enemy is China, and the Russian Federation is just an upstart that undermines the authority of the United States as "the main defender of the international order", but nothing more.

          Russia is enemy number 2. They really hate her and try to lower her by all available means. What is happening in Ukraine is just a blue dream, very beneficial for the Americans.

            First, the image of "the chief defender of the international order" has been severely undermined.
            Pumping Ukraine with conventional weapons is expensive, it’s not a fact that it will help (but it will also undermine the image of American weapons), and God forbid pumping it over - and the situation gets out of control before the use of tactical nuclear weapons. The main bet was on sanctions - but, to the surprise of many, they did not work.

            Secondly, China, the main adversary, has greatly benefited from the sanctions against the Russian Federation.
            Same N.I.:

            ... about the high cost to Western economies in an era of soaring deficits and high inflation - all of this leads to a real catastrophe. No one can be happy with the conflict, with the possible exception of China, which is increasingly benefiting from the relegation of Russia to its ever-lowering status in their unequal Eurasian partnership.

            Thirdly, to force the whole world to impose sanctions, to control their implementation - these are the same resources, and serious resources. Nobody likes to be told who to trade with and who not to trade with.

            fourthly, looking at all these sanctioned hand-twisting, the whole world will make efforts to find / create alternatives to those goods and services that the United States uses access to as an instrument of pressure.

              But is it okay that a loss in Ukraine will undermine the image much more (and in general can lead to the collapse of NATO, which is a death sentence for US world domination), but a victory over the Russians, on the contrary, will restore it?
              The costs are penny compared to the damage done, and someone in the United States with their printing press can afford even less. During the Cold War, they spent orders of magnitude more money, weapons and soldiers, and here is such a gift. They do not believe in the use of nuclear weapons by Russia, they consider it a bluff.
              Again, Afghanistan is a clear example of the fact that supplies will go to the very end. Yes, the costs are higher now, but the damage done to the Russians is much higher.
              Enforcing sanctions on the world reinforces US global dominance while harming one of its main competitors, which is more than worth the effort.
              "The whole world" (although most of it has negligible and economic weight, with the exception of the West, China and a couple of other countries, so it's strange to take into account all sorts of Nicaragua) depends on the United States as long as the dollar remains the world currency. And the dollar has been predicted to die for 50 years already, but de-dollarization is still very far away.
              Sanctions don't work? The harm from them is obvious, just look at the state of the aviation, automotive and electronic industries, I am silent about machine tool building and microchips. Yes, they did not instantly destroy the economy, but this does not mean that they are harmless.

                losing in Ukraine will undermine the image much more

                not that word.
                But they didn’t start the NWO, they just persuaded them not to do this for a long time.

                Sanctions don't work? Their damage is obvious.

                Of course, sanctions are far from harmless.
                And these sanctions have driven us into rigid dependence on China.
                But here's the main thing, from the point of view. America, they did not reach -

                did not immediately destroy the economy

                but the victory over the Russians on the contrary will restore it?

                Of course.
                But it was a victory, and not protracted harness skirmishes on a certain front line in the steppes of Ukraine (within the borders of 2013).

                They do not believe in the use of nuclear weapons by Russia, they consider it a bluff.

                They wouldn’t believe it - a year ago they would have started to arrange a no-fly zone for us, and most likely they would have succeeded (if we exclude the nuclear weapons factor).
                So they believe, and try not to escalate, and not to make sudden movements.

                strange to take into account all sorts of Nicaragua

                Not only Nicaragua, but all of LA (except Mexico), all of Asia (even Japan needs to be coerced and controlled).

                the dollar has been predicted to die for 50 years

                Nearly 100, since 1929.
                Of course, all of the above will not become some kind of unsolvable problem for the US / West.
                Even the fact that a considerable part of the territories of the protégé remained "spent" can not be advertised, but it can be loudly told how "democracy smashed the nose of the presumptuous aggressor."
                But nevertheless, although these are feasible, but unpleasant costs, and in no way

                just a blue dream, very profitable

                  They do not believe that Russia will use nuclear weapons without NATO attacking it, and not, in principle, will never use it. These are two very big differences.

                  The costs are tolerable and useful, Afghanistan is a vivid example of this.

                  Okay, let's agree to disagree.

    150 billion a year, divided into dozens of countries. This is generally not enough and, on the contrary, support will increase. At first there were javelins and machine guns, now there is a whole range of weapons except for NATO aircraft and cruise missiles.
    NATO has not even begun to seriously supply, they are building logistics, building repair bases and training Ukrainian personnel.
    For me, it’s just a big oddity that NATO has not developed some cheap analogue of a strike UAV for Ukraine and its allies. And their strike UAVs are in service, they are buying everything up and it’s too bold to give them to Ukraine.
    In my opinion, only small copters for Ukraine were developed by Pheonix Ghost or something like that.

    The NATO military-industrial complex is many times stronger than ours, it is a priori impossible to resist wear and tear. Only the sect of grinders and nuts in the comments is everything possible.

    If there is no ultra-cheap and easy-to-manufacture kamikaze UAV, then the T55 in the NWO will by no means be the oldest representatives.
    The lancet is an expensive and massive UAV. MASSIVE should be so that 20-30 pieces per day are used and produced.
    In extreme cases, quietly buy good UAVs from China and remake them to fit your needs

    Only on the site where "experts" write about everything and its opposite.
    The only possible comment... from my experience.
    Filled with hope, I ordered a Russian electric car to replace the one that ran on Russian oil...because for 20 years Putin promised modern Russian production...but in the end I was forced to buy a French model powered by French electricity... Here is my happy and sad conclusion.
    This is Putin's first successful goal: to destroy Russia and say that others are to blame. Bravo, Vladimir, keep up the good work, the West is looking at you as the unifier of all peoples.
