House defense bill to counter threats from Russia, North Korea – The Hill

on Fri Jun 23, 2017 8:57 am
House defense bill to counter threats from Russia, North Korea – The Hill

The House Armed Services Committee is proposing several policy moves in its annual defense authorization bill to counter threats from Russia and North Korea, according to The Hill.

Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) told reporters Thursday that the House version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) would move funds for the European Deterrence Initiative from the Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) account to the base budget, The Hill wrote.

OCO is a war fund that has been a way for lawmakers to inject money into the budget without going over spending caps set by the 2011 Budget Control Act. Many have accused the Pentagon of using OCO as an all-purpose slush fund.

"I'm trying to slowly, as best I can, make OCO about OCO," Thornberry said. "I think it sends a clear signal to allies adversaries alike that we’re there to stay."

The European Deterrence Initiative is designed to provide aid to the militaries of European allies worried about Russian aggression.

The bill will also include a requirement that the committee receive a report on what a permanent presence in Eastern Europe would require.

"There's a cost to rotating forces through, and I don't know that any of us want to make a conclusion about that," he said, adding that there will also be several elements in the bill to "strengthen further our commitment to NATO and the Ukraine."

The Army already has one brigade in the region, but on a continuous rotation. Supporters of a permanently stationed brigade argue it would be a stronger deterrence.

Similarly, there are a number of provisions related to the Asia Pacific region, with more money for joint training and a variety of policy and funding commitments devoted to the region.

"I kind of think of it as an [European Deterrence Initiative] for the Asia Pacific," Thornberry said. "It’s not just talk it's dollars and commitment."

Thornberry last month introduced a $2.1 billion bill on Indo-Asia-Pacific security that he plans to fold into this year's NDAA.

The bill is timely as North Korea on Thursday conducted another rocket engine test as part of its efforts to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile, on top of dozen missile launches this year, as well as three engine tests in March.

The bill would also authorize millions for the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative, meant to help train and equip that country's military.

"It does continue to include military assistance to Ukraine and encouragement that the administration provide lethal assistance so the Ukrainian can defense themselves against the aggression that is coming at them from the east," Thornberry said...............

For protection from Russia: the United States promised to provide military assistance to Ukraine

United States intend to provide military assistance to Ukraine in the budget for 2018 fiscal year.

This was stated by head of the Committee on Armed Services of the lower chamber of the US Congress Mac Thornberry, reports of The Hill .

According to the senator, we are talking about the bill, providing for the allocation of funds to the US Department of Defense. Appropriate funds will be used to protect against Russian aggression.

In particular, Thornberry noted that the US Defense Department will allocate millions of Ukrainian military training as well as providing them with equipment.

"What exactly is included military assistance to Ukraine and the call to the presidential administration Trump provide lethal aid to Ukrainians could defend themselves against aggression from the east" - summed up the American senator.

Yesterday the US House of Representatives on the initiative of members of the Republican Party refused to vote on the bill quickly on new sanctions against Russia.

As reported by the "Observer", and later the Ministry of Finance of the United States imposed sanctions against 38 Russian companies and private individuals in connection with the aggression of Russia against Ukraine.
