    Americans Fighting for Ukraine Urge Congress to Pass Aid Bill – By Brendan Cole (Newsweek) / Feb 7, 2024

    Three Americans who have served with Ukrainian forces have warned of dire consequences in the war with Russia if Congress does not agree to more aid for Kyiv.

    The ongoing deadlock in Congress over further funding for Ukraine threatens to hand Moscow a major advantage in the almost two-year-old conflict, according to the trio, who felt compelled to go to Ukraine to fight against the Russians.

    “It just gets frustrating when your country is stalling,” said one U.S. soldier who joined Ukraine’s international legion and arrived in the country in August 2022. He was posted to GUR, the country’s military intelligence agency.

    “America dictates the outcome of this war. If we decide Ukraine’s going to win, then Ukraine will win. If America just sleeps on it, then Russia will just take as much as it can,” the soldier told Newsweek, speaking on condition of anonymity.
