US Army says it will RUN OUT of money to protect Europe and Africa by May if Ukraine aid isn’t approved: Congress facing growing pressure to send more money to keep basic operations going

Army will RUN OUT of funds for Europe and Africa without Ukraine aid

The U.S. military is currently diverting money meant for operations in Europe and Africa to assist Ukraine, and could soon run out of funds for its operations in those parts of the world.

  • The U.S. is currently siphoning hundreds of millions of dollars to support Ukraine amid an impasse in Congress
  • The Army’s Europe and Africa Command has about $3 billion left to cover its operating costs that are expected to amount to $5 billion in 2024

The U.S. military is currently diverting money meant for operations in Europe and Africa to assist Ukraine, and could soon run out of funds for its operations in those parts of the world if Congress does not act soon. 

The U.S. is currently siphoning hundreds of millions of dollars to support Ukraine amid an impasse in Congress. 

Since the start of this fiscal year, October 2023, the Army has spent over $430 million on Ukraine-related operations, including training Ukrainian troops, transporting weapons and deploying U.S. troops to Europe

The Army’s Europe and Africa Command has about $3 billion left to cover its operating costs that are expected to amount to $5 billion in 2024, one senior Army official told CNN – and could run out of money by May. 

‘If we don’t get a base budget, if we don’t get Ukraine supplemental [funding package], if the government shuts down, if we get nothing else and nothing changes from today…we will run out of [operations and maintenance] funding in May,’ the official told the publication. 

For months lawmakers have looked for a way to pass a supplemental funding package to get money to Ukraine, but appetite for funding its war against Russia has waned on Capitol Hill. 

Soon the Army will have to arbitrage funding, with Army Secretary Christine Wormuth telling CNN she expects they will have to ‘rob Peter to pay Paul.’

‘Every incremental dollar I have, it’s very important where I put that dollar. And I’m constantly choosing between, do we put it on barracks? Do I put it on enlistment incentives? Do I put it on exercises? Do I put it on modernization? I don’t have spare cash to be just sort of donating some of that,’ Wormuth, the service’s civilian leader tasked with budgeting, told CNN. 

‘This was money that we anticipated to be replenished, obviously, by the supplemental,’ she added, reiterating the need for congressional action. 

‘We would cease to exist,’ if funds are not allocated from elsewhere within the Army’s budget, one official said. 

While US funding for Ukraine has run dry, training for Ukrainian troops has continued because it’s been deemed mission critical by the president. The U.S. is currently training about 1,500 Ukrainian troops in Germany and is training Ukrainian pilots on the F-16 fighter aircraft at Morris Air National Guard Base in Arizona.

SHOCK VIDEO: Huge Line of Illegals “As Far as the Eye Can See” Traverse Down Steep, Rocky Mountain After Crossing Into San Diego

Joe Biden’s America.

A huge line of illegal aliens traversed down a steep, rocky mountain after illegally crossing into Jacumba, California on Monday.

Hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants from all over the world are traveling through the Darien Gap en route to the United States every month.

Illegals from Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and South and Central America are making the trek to the United States.

Jacumba, which is about 75 miles east of San Diego, has been a hangout for thousands of illegals after crossing the border. The high desert has been a drop-off location for smugglers for illegals to live in makeshift camps.

The group Border Kindness, which is a non-governmental organization that helps provide resources for illegals, has provided food and water in areas where terrain is difficult to traverse in the San Diego mountains.

A large group of illegals crossed through the open gaps on the border wall in Jacumba and traversed down the rocky mountain.

The line of invaders goes up the mountain “as far as the eye can see.”

“There is currently a huge line of illegal immigrants coming down a steep, rocky mountain after crossing into Jacumba, CA. The line appears to go up the mountain as far as the eye can see. Three men made it down already and told us they’re from Kazakhstan,” Fox News reporter Bill Melugin said.
