TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – President Vladimir Cheese fries promised its armed forces to provide everything they needed to support their attack on Ukraine. Currently, the war is nearing the end of its 10th month and there is no sign of it ending.
In his address to the military leadership in Moscow on Wednesday, December 21, 2022, Putin said there were no government financial limits in terms of equipment and materials. He called on the NATO military alliance to use all its capabilities to fight back Russia.
Putin then urged the assembled military leaders to build on the experience they had gained fighting in Syria and during what Moscow called a “special military operation” in Ukraine. He hailed the Russian defense chief as a hero.
“Russia must pay special attention to the importance of drones in conflicts,” Putin said.
The Kremlin chief added that Russia’s Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile – nicknamed “Satan II”, and capable of carrying out a nuclear strike against the United States – would be ready for use in the near future.
Russia has invaded Ukraine since February 2022. Both sides have given no sign of wanting to sit down at the negotiating table.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky arrives in Washington on Wednesday, December 21, 2022. In the land of Uncle Sam, he will meet US President Joe Biden and address Congress.
US officials say Biden will announce nearly $2 billion in additional military aid to Ukraine, which will include a battery of Patriot missiles to help defend it against a barrage of Russian missiles.
The Biden administration has provided an estimated $20 billion in military aid to Ukraine, including artillery munitions, munitions for the NASAMS air defense system and for the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System ( HIMARS).
For ten months, Biden has been in fairly intensive communication with Zelensky. According to US officials, Biden will not use the talks to push Zelensky to the negotiating table with Putin.
The Kremlin said on Wednesday December 21, 2022 that it sees no possibility of peace talks with Kyiv. In a phone call with reporters, spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the continued supply of weapons to the West Ukraine will lead to a “deepening” of the conflict.
