At a conference in Denmark on Thursday, 26 Western nations agreed to continue supporting Ukraine in its war against Russia for the long term and pledged more than $1.5 billion in new military aid.
The $1.5 billion includes donations from the UK, Denmark, and Norway, but more countries are expected to pledge money. “It will grow,” said Danish Foreign Minister Morten Bødskov. “Some of the countries need to go back home and get the support of their parliaments.”
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed the conference via video link, and Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov attended the meeting in person. Neither official specified what sort of weapons Ukraine was going to receive from the new aid.
The UK said Thursday that it would provide Ukraine with more multiple rocket launch systems that have a range of about 50 miles. Norway said that it will start training Ukrainian troops in Britain.
The new aid pledged by 26 nations on Thursday is just a fraction of what the US has been sending Ukraine. On Monday, the US announced $4.5 billion in budgetary aid for the Ukrainian government and a new $1 billion weapons package.
Ukraine is expecting to receive $3 billion of the new budgetary aid this month and for the remaining $1.5 billion to arrive in September. According to the US Agency for International Development (USAID), the new funds brings the total budgetary aid the US has provided Ukraine to $8.5 billion.
Since Russia invaded on February 24, the US has pledged over $9 billion in weapons for Ukraine. The funds are being pulled from the $40 billion Ukraine aid bill that President Biden signed into law back in May, which is meant to last through September 30.

Zelensky will soon be the wealthiest man on earth with his corrupt theft of funds from Ukrainian aid.
All his money can be confiscated if he does something wrong.
Let’s hope he pays the ultimate price,!
That depends on how he moves it and how well he hides it. All over Africa and even in Afghanistan, they hide billions of Western aid and loans, and it is not confiscated when they finally lose power.
You mean his money can be confiscated if he does anything inconvenient for other war criminals.
Crikey! What a bunch of A-Holes! Bye-Done is really getting on my tits! How many Americans could use some cold hard cash right now?! Do we have to buy weapons first?! Not only that but we are fighting the Russians (indirectly)! Bye-Done is in the MIC pockets really deep! Bye-Done is toast! I don’t care if he wins the Nobel Peace Prize! I am fed to the teeth with this warmonger. I’m going to put this in a language that everyone can understand: F-ck Bye-Done and the horse he rode in on (no offense to the horse)!
Don’t expect the next one to do it any better.
If there really was ever any doubt this is a proxy war….
The “budgetary aid” really offends me; read as “payoffs” to zelensky and his puppetmasters to continue to sacrifice Ukrainian lives for nothing. How’s that Kherson counteroffensive going? Oh right; it’s not; as reported in another story here today, Ukraine has “failed to make any territorial gains”. I guess we need to write bigger checks?? But “Himars, Himars, Himars”!
That should read the west pledges to continue the proxy war with Russia .
“‘It will grow,’ said Danish Foreign Minister…Bødskov. ‘Some of the countries need to go back home and get the support of their parliaments.'”
‘It will grow,’ said Danish Foreign Minister…Bødskov. ‘Some of the countries need to go back home to drum up fear and hatred plus put out brushfires of doubt about the failing US ‘no negotiation’ and ‘to the last Ukrainian!’ stance.
And when Ukraine is drafting 12 year-olds and 70 year-olds because nobody is left, they’ll still be sending
Steal from taxpayers to pay for endless wars, so sick of neocon foreign foreign policy.
Will it turn it big money?
Ukraine says it needs $5 billion/month for its government, free oil and gas to run its economy, AND both pay for soldiers and all their weapons and ammo for an army large enough to fight Russia — meaning a really big army.
So who is going to pay for all that? The US just ponied up $6 billion in funds and weapons, which is less than one month of what Ukraine says it needs, without anything for the coming winter’s fuel crisis.
Ukraine talks hundreds of rocket launchers, and we send them four at a time. Ukraine talks a thousand artillery pieces, and we send a few dozen. Ukraine says Russia is firing 50,000 rounds a day at them, and we send two or three day’s worth to cover months.
Big talk. Not much else likely, on the scale of the talk.
Indeed, hence Russia is winning quite decisively. This isn’t going to be remembered as a long war.
Yes it can go on for days.. Weeks even!
Hunter Biden is soon to be the single largest landowner in Ukraine along with other American corporations that own more agricultural land than exists in Italy. The land is leased until 2024 when it reverts to the lease holders.
Long term support?
I do not think this CAN go on for much longer. Soon the Russian Bear is going to react WESTERN provocation and BLOW THE WHOLE PLACE UP>
“Some of the countries need to go back home and get the support of their parliaments.” WHAT? You are going to ask the people and pretend you are democratic????
Putin’s plan for a new Yacht just got postponed.
But Zelensky’s didn’t.
Nah, he is too busy fighting for his country.
You would’ve done the same.
Or probably not, bases on your positions, you would’ve surrendered it to Putin.
Fighting for his country..no, fighting , and murdering what was once his population. Zelensky is a punk, and comedian. Putin owns him and the West..lol
Putin owns the land he likes to take from weaker / smaller countries. That’s the kind of leader you embrace.
And apparently, Putin owns you too.
And right back to the playbook.
Just like you do.
Yes. That Russia can’t lose this war until there is diplomacy that addresses their security concerns. My same playbook from day one. You, on the other hand, cheerlead for more war.
Did you forget Iraq, Lybia, Afghanistan, Vietnam and countless small countries in South America devastated by the US? By the way Russia is confronting US / NATO not Ukraine.
Right. When he’s not doing a photoshoot with Vogue. And unlike your position of letting every last Ukrainian die and their country left as a cratered shithole?
WHat’s wrong with the press taking his photos. What, do you prefer him shirtless on a horse?
If Ukrainians wants to fight for their country, that’s their call, not Zelensky’s and surely not yours. And guess what, they are proud of their identity and will fight until they deem it no longer necessary.
Yes, war is hell. “Oh, I’ll be right back after Vogue does some photos.”
And you keep up with the idea that the Ukrainians want to fight to their death so the US can destroy Russia. I know damn well sure it isn’t Zelensky’s call. No 40 billion, no war.
Dream on..Ukraine is now Russian territory because Zelensky chose racism, terror, and mass murder against the majority in Ukraine being Russian. Zelensky is a dead man walking as are his henchmen. Time is up and the West loses again…
You are ready to join Wagner. Go!!
Illegal sanctions, rabid Russophobia, and supplying Kiev with heavy weaponry all show the West’s deeply rooted hatred of Russia. The same hatred can be seen towards any country that has chosen independence over subservience to the West. This is why they also hate China and Iran with a passion.
Hopefully, these “western” govts won’t be in power come January.
Reading this, one would think it is Russia that is bleeding the collective West, not the other way round.
The West now wear a badge of failure on their collective sleeves. The populations of the EU and eventually the US will have the last word on this pathetic support for the ultimate clown being Zelensky. The great reset is not happening, with the BRICS and then some forbidding it.

They have the money to raise to give to the weapons manufacturers, but can’t do that for electricity and gas shortage for most of Europe?
The only way this song ends is for the rest of the world to stop taking pieces of paper bearing the likeness of US Historical Figures in exchange for cars, minerals, computers, etc and make America earn what it consumes again.
So with the help of the Clown of Ukraine Zelensky America and the West has fomented an ethnic war between all of the historical tribes from Eastern Europe.
Between obama and senile angry Joey Biden I am not sure which is the most evil and disgusting!
RUSSIA ON THE ROPES–PART 13; REALLY.
The first video shows a VSU soldier along with nearly 30 fellow comrades where he criticizes Ukraine’s civilian and military leadership’s response. It ends with two short Banderite chants.
