Republicans want to define Ukraine as a “NATO Plus” country

“Guaranteeing Ukrainian Autonomy by Reinforcing its Defense” (GUARD) is a bill drafted by the Republican Party aimed at strengthening Ukraine’s defense potential.

The Republican leader in the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Representatives Michael McCaul, justifying the need to introduce new regulations in this area, emphasized that “diplomacy has little chance of success if it is not taken from a position of force.” He criticized Biden for being slow to assist Ukraine in the face of the threat from Russia and for “capitulation” over the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

“This legislation firmly rejects this pattern of weakness that has dangerously emboldened Putin by providing Ukraine with the immediate support it needs to make the Kremlin understand that further invasion of Ukraine will come at a terrible cost. Vladimir Putin must note that Congress will not advocate the restoration of the Russian zone. influence or abandonment of Ukraine and our other NATO allies and partners in Central and Eastern Europe “- emphasized McCaul.

Main assumptions of the act

Under the new legislation, Ukraine would be called a “NATO Plus” country, which would facilitate the process of selling US military technologies to Kiev. The armed forces of Ukraine would receive financial support, which would be allocated to armaments and training. Sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline would also be reinstated.

Republicans are also demanding an official determination as to whether Russia is a terrorist financing country and US $ 155 million of support from Radio Free Europe to combat Russian disinformation.
