NATO plans to create $100 billion fund to support Ukraine - FT





NATO plans to create a fund to help Ukraine

Diplomats say the U.S. share of the $100 billion will be significantly less than the bipartisan aid package whose approval has been delayed.

"This will be a crossing of the Rubicon. NATO will play a role in coordinating lethal assistance for Ukraine. I see a consensus emerging, and I think it will be there by the time we get on the plane to Washington," said one publication's interlocutors

25 than 23, than 21, 19 and 18. They better hope no major offensive like in 2022 comes around the corner somewhere this month to June to speed run the conscription age to 18.


Ukraine reduces conscription age from 27 to 25 years

The bill was submitted to Vladimir Zelensky for signing on June 5, 2023, but the president only signed off on it on April 2, 2024

MOSCOW, April 2. /TASS/. Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky has signed a law lowering the conscription age from 27 years old down to to 25.
The draft, which has been published on the Verkhovna Rada’s (parliament) website, will enter into force the day after its publication.
Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada passed the law reducing the conscription age to 25 years old back in May 2023. On June 5, 2023, the bill was submitted to Zelensky for signing but the president only signed off on it on April 2, 2024.
Ukraine’s Strana news outlet pointed out earlier that Zelensky might have decided to sign the draft because "the president is not certain that the Rada will be able to pass the second reading of the bill in the near future."

In recent months, Ukrainian and Western media outlets have repeatedly pointed out that the Ukrainian army lacked manpower. US Senator Lindsay Graham (blacklisted as a terrorist and extremist in Russia) urged Kiev to reduce conscription age during his visit to Ukraine in March.


Send Graham to the frontline instead, it would sure suck if there was a disgruntled ukrainian american carrying a gun that knew about the location of his residence.

A bit late but, here's zelensky signing into law the lowering of conscription age


Tells you much about the situation for Ukraine right now.

Just look at this population Pyramid and Ukraine in 2023 has only around 100K male in the 25 yrs old cohort. Attrition will kill this cohort in a very short time.

Ukraine is a doomed country already with no future, even if they manage to push Russia all the way to the original border. I guess the irony couldn't be any bigger for a country which anthem started with the word 'Shche ne vmerla Ukrainas'

Speaking of countries doomed by their population pyramid, Russia is very, very much in an irreversable decline without major immigration reforms. The reality, however, is that the immigrants don't want to go to a shit hole, ruled by a dictator, with horrendous life expectancy and significant poverty, with a significant chunk of the population still lacking running water. They flock to the West instead.

That is why it's imperative for Russia to swallow Ukraine and add the population pool.

Yeah thats why Russia wants both Ukraine and Belarus so Russia stays as a Ethnic Eastern Slavic nation.

Russians feel threatened by Non Russians in particular the Turkic and the Caucasus.

It is said that Russia is trying to reverse a Muslim future. Dont forget the open borders between Russia and Central Asian states.

Ukraine has always been more important to Russia than the Central Asian state. I don't recall any invasion towards Moscow from Central Asia in the last 300 years, but from Ukraine there were plenty.

As for Muslims, I think by the time Islam rebound, Russia (or any of the current great power) will not be there anymore or they will still be there but ain't gonna be as powerful as it is today.

So there's no need to worry.

WTF We all love Israel now. https://rostec.ru/news/robot-saper-shmel-poluchil-novyy-tral-dlya-effektivnoy-borby-s-lepestkami/ atleast if Russia's demining equipment gets destroyed by a drone there wont be a loss of life.
1712172627001.png

The High-Precision Complexes Holding of Rostec State Corporation has modernized the remotely controlled MGR-4 Shmel humanitarian demining vehicle. The sapper robot was equipped with a new improved compact trawl, which simplifies the transportation of the vehicle and allows for more effective neutralization of anti-personnel mines, including small-sized "Petals".

The new trawl has a reduced size and weight, which makes it possible to transport a robotic vehicle in the back of a conventional truck in a fully assembled form. It is also equipped with additional minesweeping elements - firing pins, which do not give even the smallest anti-personnel mines a chance to "hide".

Such equipment is especially in demand in new regions, where the enemy is using inconspicuous PFM-1 Lepestok mines against the civilian population and intensive humanitarian demining work is underway. The updated Shmel is being demonstrated for the first time at the High-Precision Complexes exposition at the Expotechnostrazh exhibition.

"Bumblebee" is a modern system with remote control. Robotization of the machine makes it possible to eliminate direct human participation in hazardous processes, minimizes the risk for sappers and increases the speed of demining. The new mine sweeper is capable of clearing a wide range of anti-personnel mines, including small-sized pressure mines. The main purpose of this equipment is to help quickly establish a peaceful life in new Russian regions," said Bekkhan Ozdoev, Industrial Director of the Armament Complex of Rostec State Corporation.

The humanitarian demining vehicle was developed on the basis of the Ant-1000 mini-loader by the enterprises of High-Precision Complexes - the Kovrov Electromechanical Plant and the All-Russian Research Institute Signal. Earlier, Rostec showed tests of the demining complex in the NashCrash project.

The Expotechnostrazh exhibition takes place from 3 to 5 April 2024 in St. Petersburg. The event brings together leading Russian manufacturers and specialists in the field of security.

Since you are like a keeper of Ukrainian package deals has Ukraine received more aid in the 1st quarter of this year than in either the 1st quarter of 2022 or 2023? I am just trying to estimate a time frame of when the systematic killing of Ukrainian soldiers reaches the mobilization laws to push the age to 18
