Pentagon Warns It’s Running Low On Money To Replace Weapons Sent To Ukraine

  • The Pentagon has issued a warning to Congress regarding its dwindling funds for replacing weapons sent to Ukraine, which has resulted in a slowdown of resupplying certain troops. The details are outlined in a letter addressed to congressional leaders.
  • In the letter, obtained by The Associated Press, the Pentagon urgently requests that Congress allocate additional funding for Ukraine. Despite Congress averting a government shutdown through the passage of a short-term funding bill over the weekend, it is noted that all assistance for Ukraine in its conflict against Russia was excluded from the measure.
  • Pentagon Comptroller Michael McCord specifically informed House and Senate leaders that out of the initial $25.9 billion allocated by Congress to replenish U.S. military resources supplied to Ukraine, only $1.6 billion remains. These resources consist of significant quantities of artillery rounds, rockets, and crucial missiles that are vital to Ukraine’s counteroffensive strategy aimed at reclaiming territory seized by Russia during the conflict.
