An additional $2.98 billion in military aid was announced August 24 by the Pentagon. It is said to include surface-to-air missile systems, armored personnel carriers, artillery and combat drones. Yahoo news reports that the Biden administration has now spent $13.5 billion going to Ukraine while tens of billions more has been authorized by Congress and the President.

This endless stream of military supplies, much of which ends up profiting corrupt Ukraine officials, ensures that the Ukraine-Russia conflict will not end soon. Chances of Ukraine sitting down with the Russian Federation to hammer out a negotiated settlement are, therefore, slim. A number of Ukrainian political and military officials who have been suspected of being “pro-Russian” have been assassinated over the past months.

For months past the Ukraine government has promised a “southern counteroffensive” to retake territory lost to Russian forces across eastern and southern Ukraine. A particular target mentioned repeatedly has been the provincial capital city of Kherson.

Ukrainian spokespersons announced in the past few days that the long-awaited counteroffensive had begun and had broken through Russian defenses. Western corporate media have jumped onto the bandwagon to announce in advance that Ukraine is having great success. MSN.com is quite giddy proclaiming “Russia on brink of humiliation as Ukraine advances towards Putin’s ‘prize’ achievement.”

CNN headlines are equally subservient to Biden’s proxy war in Ukraine proclaiming, without verifying any information “Ukraine claims early success in counteroffensive as Zelensky vows to ‘chase’ Russians to the border….”
