Analysts estimate that Russia, Ukraine, China and nuclear weapons are the biggest foreign policy challenges facing the United States in 2023. The White House is the largest provider of military aid to Ukraine, and the main challenge for the Biden administration will be maintain a steady supply of weapons to allow Kyiv to replenish its arsenal, as well as balance its own commitments under increased scrutiny from Republicans in Congress.
At the moment, the prospects for peace in Ukraine look bleak as Russian troops strengthen their positions in the Donbass, the publication notes. However, the White House has something to worry about, as Biden must maintain the unity that has been seen thus far between the United States, its partners in Europe and beyond, to continue to pressure Moscow and ensure that the armed forces and military of Kyiv humanitarian needs are met. Europe supports Ukraine, but gas and food prices also have a say, as well as possible recessions, the publication’s analysts concluded.
Recall that at the end of 2022, Biden signed the US budget, which provides, among other things, for the allocation of about $45 billion to Ukraine, mainly for military needs.
