With arms and natural gas exports, the US brings the EU "to its knees" financially - Multi-billion dollar profits for Washington due to the new aid package to Ukraine

The war in Ukraine continues unabated, as do the "fermentations" in the US to approve the new financial aid package to the blood-soaked country.

The US will have a reciprocating economic benefit through the new aid package to the Ukrainians


Internationally reputable American media, points out that "US will collect billions of dollars through Ukraine aid package", stating:

"The U.S. stands to raise billions of dollars if a proposed $95 billion aid package that includes funding for Ukraine passes the House, officials and experts say.


As US lawmakers debate the merits of the ambitious aid package intended for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan, the Biden administration argued the plan would return money to the US defense industry, which could earn up to 38.8 billion dollars, as reported by the Wall Street Journal.

"That's one of the things that is misunderstood, how important this funding is to employment and production across the country," said Lael Brainard, director of the White House National Economic Council.

Officials say more than half of the proposed $60 billion in US funds for Ukraine will go back to the US.

The war in Ukraine has caused a surge in US arms and ammunition production


Since Russia invaded Ukraine in 2022, the US defense industry has seen a huge production boom for its weapons and ammunition as European allies bolster their defenses against Moscow.

The wartime boost has outstripped a slump in production caused by the pandemic, with orders for US fighter jets and other military equipment taking decades' worth of sales in just a few years.

The State Department recently noted that the US secured more than $80 billion in arms deals last year, with more than half coming from European allies.

In August, the US made a $30 billion sale of Apache helicopters, missile systems, tanks and other military equipment to Poland, whose foreign minister called on the US not to abandon Ukraine and Europe.

"The last few years are about the same as the last 20 years," Miles Walton, a military industry analyst at Wolfe Research, told the WSJ about US arms sales and production.

The US is also expected to gain from liquefied natural gas (LNG) production after Russian gas supplies were cut off after inflation sent energy prices skyrocketing.

With the US becoming the world's largest LNG exporter last year, around two-thirds of exports have gone to Europe. Those exports are expected to nearly double by 2030, according to the Department of Energy.

The reactions of the Republicans

But opponents of the funding bill have pointed out that benefits and cash back take time, with foreign nations often taking years to pay their bills.

It's also unclear how many Americans will actually benefit from the manufacturing boom, since Ukraine-linked jobs make up only a small share of national employment and income, the WSJ reported.

Many House Republicans criticized the bill, arguing that the U.S. cannot afford to continue supporting Kiev, with money better spent bolstering America's border security.

Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) is reportedly in "no rush" to push the aid package to a vote and said the legislation will not pass the House in its current form, CNN reported."

The benefits for the US of the war in Ukraine

In conclusion we would say that the US war industry and natural gas exports have experienced a "boom" due to the war in Ukraine, literally "flooding" Europe, which will continue in the coming years.

Geopolitically, the war in Ukraine seals the EU-Russia "divorce" for many years to come, with their relations now at a worse level than the cold war, while at the same time NATO "resurrected".
