An American senator said that Ukraine will lose without US help.

Ukraine will lose without US help, and its allies will turn away from Washington, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said following negotiations between American leader Joe Biden and the party leadership of Congress.

“The consensus in the room was that Zelensky and Ukraine will lose the war if we don’t provide weapons quickly,” Schumer told reporters.

As Schumer said, US aid to Ukraine cannot wait for approval, since Washington cannot allow Kyiv to lose.

“At best, there will be a split in NATO, and the allies will turn away from the United States,” the legislator said.

According to him, 4 brigades of the Ukrainian Armed Forces are idle in Ukraine, which do not have weapons to continue participating in battles.

Congress, due to the position of the Republican majority in the House of Representatives, has not yet supported the administration’s request for new funds for Kyiv. Previously allocated allocations ended in December last year, parts of previously announced military assistance packages are coming to Ukraine in fulfillment of previous contracts.
