Ukraine is Defenseless Against Russian Attack Due to ’05 $48 Million Grant Sen Obama Secured To Destroy Its Guns, Ammo

With much hype surrounding whether or not the U.S. should aid Ukraine against Russian attack this week, it’s imperative to note a fact going unnoticed by the media.

As Russia continues to reassert itself in the Eastern Bloc with its Neo-Soviet territorial ambitions, one cannot help but shudder at the fact that Ukraine will be defenseless with or without aid from the U.S. (As much as I want Ukraine to defend itself, I don’t think it’s smart to give them aid at this time.)

In fact, they shouldn’t trust this administration with providing them aid given one of Obama’s actions as senator that’s continually thrown under the rug. In August 2005, he and former U.S. senator Dick Lugar visited Ukraine and traveled to Donetsk, which is the hotly contested region Russia is so eager to seize from Ukraine. Then-Senator Barack Obama secured $48 million in federal funding to help Ukraine destroy tons of thousands of guns and ammunition, which has now rendered Ukraine essentially defenseless against any future attack from Russia.

Here’s more from Daily Mail:

As a U.S. senator, Barack Obama won $48 million in federal funding to help Ukraine destroy thousands of tons of guns and ammunition – weapons which are now unavailable to the Ukrainian army as it faces down Russian President Vladimir Putin during his invasion of Crimea.

In August 2005, just seven months after his swearing-in, Obama traveled to Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine with then-Indiana Republican Senator Dick Lugar, touring a conventional weapons site.

The two met in Kiev with President Victor Yushchenko, making the case that an existing Cooperative Threat Reduction Program covering the destruction of nuclear weapons should be expanded to include artillery, small arms, anti-aircraft weapons, and conventional ammunition of all kinds.

After a stopover in London, the senators returned to Washington and declared that the U.S. should devote funds to speed up the destruction ofmore than 400,000 small arms, 1,000 anti-aircraft missiles, and more than 15,000 tons of ammunition.

How ludicrous is that? As David Limbaugh said and famously wrote, Obama is- without a doubt-the great destroyer. Meddling with other countries and essentially making them weaker? He’s truly a great destroyer domestically and abroad.

  • Dick

    Is this what he and the democrats want for the us? To confiscate our weapons, emasculate our military and leave the US defenseless?

    • Bullets First

      Seems to have been his modus operandi for the past 7 years.

    The purpose of this article is solely to assign blame. It is defeatist. It makes no difference at this point in time who is to be blamed for Ukranian military weakness… the bottom line is no amount of weapon given to Ukraine would change the outcome of a furious and determined Russian assault on it. Is it too difficult for all of you to undestand there is no military solution for the Ukranian crises
