Where Military Aid To Ukraine Comes From

“Looking at pledges of military aid to Ukraine between Jan 24 and August 3, the U.S. government has committed to providing the most arms, weapons and other equipment by far. $25 billion in military aid was pledged up until the given date, according to the Ukraine Support Tracker by the Kiel Institute for the World Economy.

“The second-ranked country, the United Kingdom, has pledged far less – just over $4 billion – in the given time frame. In relative terms, however, both military aid commitments amount to approximately 0.1 percent of either country’s GDP. Looking at this metric, Ukraine’s smaller neighbors contributed more to its war effort, for example Poland (military aid of 0.3 percent of GDP) or Estonia (0.8 percent). Even when combining military, financial and humanitarian aid delivered or pledged by the U.S. is added up, this only amounts to 0.2 percent the country’s GDP.”

Seems like the U.S. is getting ripped off. Here’s the link: https://www.statista.com/chart/27278/military-aid-to-ukraine-by-country/
