The newspaper pointed out that “officials acknowledge that US and European arms stockpiles will run out at some point. While the United States has provided $54 billion in military and other aid, no one expects another $54 billion in checks when they run out.”

According to the publication, officials and analysts said it would be difficult to “maintain the same level of material support” in the face of “growing tensions” of the conflict “on both sides of the Atlantic.”

The newspaper adds that congressional-approved military aid is estimated to last until the second quarter of next year, but “the question is how long the current arms and ammunition shipments can continue without compromising US military preparedness.”

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov indicated that any arms shipment to Ukraine would be a legitimate target for Russia.
