Pentagon announces new US command in Germany and increased aid to Ukraine | Al Mayadeen English

In addition to a fresh $400 million security support package, the Pentagon announced on Friday that the Defense Department is forming a new command to oversee how the United States and its allies train and equip the Ukrainian military.

The Pentagon’s commitment to arming Ukraine and the creation of the new command, as reported by the New York Times, are crystal-clear indications that Washington expects the “threat” from Russia to Ukraine and its neighbors to last for a very long time, according to current and former senior US officials. Sabrina Singh, the deputy Pentagon press secretary, told reporters at a news briefing that the command will “ensure we are postured to continue helping Ukraine over the long term.” The new origination,  Security Assistance Group-Ukraine, or SAG-U, will be housed inside the Pentagon’s European Command, with its headquarters in Germany. It will commit to giving Ukraine military weapons and training while employing about 300 people. The new command, which will report to General Christopher G. Cavoli, America’s senior European officer, will implement the decisions made by the Ukraine Defense Contact Group, a union of 40 nations established by the Defense Department after the military operation to address Ukraine’s demands. Senior military officials from the member nations met in Brussels this week in light of this.

    • We don’t have a dog in this fight? Not physically, but monetarily, we are up to our eyeballs in it – with no accountability as to how it is being utilized.
      I would posit that we will have a dog in it soon
