    Wait til it happens. If it costs money, needs Congress, also can be put off for a long time. We are at war and can’t waste time on a Ukraininan terrorist groups. It will never happen – we make these promises all the time but never set a date.

      You seem annoyed whenever there’s good news about Ukraine.
      Sorry, but these aren’t from the US government, they are private individuals that will help Ukraine rid themselves of the invading russian apes doing their ‘wilding’.
      And containing russians in their cesspool of a country is a good thing for humans world wide.

        It still costs money and Semenchenko’s battalion right up there with Azov and Aidar. Too bad he survived Illovaisk.

          lol kommade-ette, don’t worry about the money because when the humans kill enough russians and they leave back to their cesspool of a country, Ukraine can develop their own resources instead of the primates from russia stealing them.

          russia is a disease upon humans, russia is ebola

    Donbas gets “privet” funding. Plus there are a LOT of former US military personnel who would do it just because they can not stand the Russians.
    Historical Note
    During the Bosnian war Croatia lost about one third of their territory to Serb rebels.
    Clinton wanted to help so he bought the surplus East German Army equipment and gave it to them.
    However the Croats hired a US “consulting firm” to teach their military US Air-Land battle doctrine and the results were operation Storm in which they overran the rebels in a matter of days.
    Ukraine’s defeat can be the catalyst for change that produces future victory. In many ways defeat is better (unless your the one who gets killed then it seriously sucks) Defeat focuses the mind. Tests the sprite. Clarifies the goals. Exposes weakness’ for all to see.
    Now is the time for the Ukraine military to do some serious self evaluation while the painful sting is still strong.

      “a LOT of former US military personnel who would do it just because they can not stand the Russians.”

      If I didn’t have two unbreakable obligations, I would have been in Ukraine months ago.
      Yeah, a lot of US Military personnel don’t like the russians, but to be honest, who does? We can be a wonderful asset to a free Ukraine. Lots of people getting out and being forced out, with not a lot to do, not a lot of economic opportunities, and they know what the apes in russia do.
