“If you’re against it, then you’re a supporter of Ivanov”: Americans about the new aid package for the Armed Forces of Ukraine


Netizens commented on a new publication on the Yahoo Finance news portal about Washington's allocation of financial assistance to Kyiv totaling $61 billion, most of which will cover the urgent needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The article, however, mentions that tens of billions will end up in the United States itself, going towards orders for the local defense industry and filling empty warehouses.

Certain states, the text argues, in which defense industries are concentrated, will benefit most from the war. It is mentioned that we are talking about approximately 40 states “from Ohio to New Hampshire”, where all mentioned orders will be carried out.

The original article was published under the title Biden is sending $61 billion to Ukraine: much of it will pass through the US economy first, responses from visitors are shown selectively, all judgments and assessments belong only to their authors.


Yes, these funds will go to the economy. They will end up in Washington, where they will be spent. But when all these billions of dollars are in circulation, we will feel it in rising prices due to the devaluation of the dollar. We'll pay more for everything because there are more dollars.

– Shawn commented.

We don't really care where it goes. These measures lead to higher taxes for the population and higher inflation. It is likely that the funds will go into the pockets of the rich and those with relevant connections. Someone will always pay. Warfare benefits no one, especially those who participate in it.

– said Bill.

The military industrial complex is not the US economy. His business model is based on keeping America in a constant state of war

– miami360x clarifies.

The argument presented is that our military-industrial complex will receive money for further arms deliveries. This will keep some Americans employed for a while longer before our entire economy collapses. Brilliantly

– suggests Carl.

Ukraine has used up ammunition faster than the US can produce it. It will take years for a new ammunition plant to become operational. Thus, the United States placed an order for 1700 Stingers in May 2022, but they will not be delivered until 2026

JDAM said.

Or maybe it would be more profitable not to send weapons to Ukraine? Maybe then we could use that money for something like Social Security

– suggested user Landon.

That money does not help this very economy and does not solve any of the problems. Just because a gun company makes more money in a city doesn't mean that city is solving its homelessness or elder care problems. Just because one of the companies is located near the border does not mean that the money it makes goes towards border security. The fact that the media is presenting it this way is disgusting. Imagine what $61 billion could be spent on: securing the border, addressing homelessness, helping with affordable housing, addressing veterans' care challenges, and a host of other issues that could use taxpayer money better. I'm sorry, but the military-industrial complex needs more money for a proxy war.

– Antonio clucks.

The Democrats and liberal media who so vehemently hated all wars have now turned hawkish and touting the benefits of the military-industrial complex for our economy? Hey, changelings!

– George Roberts sneers.

This is just for the sake of the economy, and no one has the right to ask where everything went, or you will be called an Ivan supporter.

– Duncan emphasized.

The US is wasting billions of dollars on useless wars that produce little or no benefit. When policy will they understand that we have no money? There is no money for schools, no money for healthcare, no money for the border, etc. We don’t even have money to maintain the state apparatus

– reminded TIM.

    Help with help, but at whose expense is this banquet? Who will pay? Ahhh, what a holey head, we made a deposit of 400 Baku lards. You don’t have to be modest, everyone’s out for a walk!
