Political scientists: the struggle over the budget in the U.S. will not affect aid to Ukraine
The confrontation between the administration of U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama and the Republican-controlled Congress on the issue of adoption of the military budget for 2016 is related To the unfolding election campaign and will not affect the aid package to the armed forces of Ukraine, according to respondents Last news professionals.

Obama on Thursday vetoed a draft defense budget for 2016. The first document was adopted by both houses of Congress, but the President immediately said that they would not sign it, since the text suggests the growth of military spending presumably by 90 billion dollars in the coming fiscal year without the conclusion of broader budget agreements between 2 parties in Congress. The Republicans, controlling both houses of Congress, there is no sufficient number of votes to cross the President's veto. So, after a presidential veto meeting on the budget must be renewed.

the draft law Also stipulated that from 612 billion total expenditure budget planned to allocate 300 million dollars to provide assistance to Ukraine in military and intelligence cooperation, including military weapons, ammunition, drones, anti-tank weapons and mortars. To expend these funds, and if so, in what way, have to decide jointly the Ministry of defense and the U.S. Department of state.


Leading scientific worker of the Institute of international security issues, Russian Academy of Sciences Alexey Fenenko emphasizes that the Confrontation over military budget is a traditional competition of Republicans and Democrats, in which They determine " who was more interested in the development of US military power ".

"Republicans believe that Obama doesn't appreciate armed forces, cuts cost, when they should on the contrary be increased. Obama disagrees, says that there is no need to increase, need to focus on breakthrough technological projects, " - says the expert.

Answering the question why Obama went to use the veto in the adoption of the military budget at the present time, the specialist associates it With who received the course of the presidential election race.

"The Republicans have artificially put in the project large military spending to the Democrats they were podsokratili, then the Republicans will have another reason to accuse the Obama administration of dislike for America," said Fenenko.

Agree head of the Center Voyenno-political researches the CLAIM of RAS, Professor, DEP. World politics of the higher school of Economics Vladimir Batyuk.

"Actions of Republicans in Congress will be determined not so much normal legislative process, how much electoral considerations, proving how Barack Obama and his Democratic party are weaklings, unable to provide the national desire of the United States. The military budget has become a victim of such confrontation, " he said.

as a result it may come to the point that North America have the opportunity to enter into a new fiscal year without a military budget, the expert continued. In this case, equipped with weapons forces will have to be funded under the parameters that were laid out in the previous military budget. As a result, most defense programs are able to deal With the problem of lack of funding, he adds.



Batiuk believes that Congress and the White house can reach a compromise, despite pre-election passions. According to his statement, the situation where the Military budget will not be adopted, not advantageous neither for administration nor for legislators.

"They will seek consensus so as not to appear in the eyes of ordinary American citizens in the form of politicians, are willing to sacrifice national defense, national security to their political ambitions. This situation, when the White house and Capitol hill don't have the option to agree, strongly undermines the credibility of the politicians who brought this to boiling point. Voters, it is not like They do not miss the opportunity in the elections of these politicians to punish, " - said the expert.

according to his vision, while this compromise may be to reduce costs, the approval mechanism for the sequestration budget, especially because it would be in the interests of taxpayers.

Associate Professor of international relations MGIMO (University) Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, RIAC specialist Mikhail Troitsky also believes that the agreement on the U.S. budget will continue.

"I think the likelihood of compromise (for budget) high. What would be the point of this compromise, to tell now difficult, " said Trinity.


experts agree that the protracted approval of the military budget will not affect this document provided assistance to the armed forces of Ukraine. Thus, Batiuk emphasizes that North America is already providing assistance to Ukraine as non-lethal weapons - radios, night vision devices, radar for artillery. In addition, the amount provided for in the draft budget for 2016 ($300 million), compared With 90 billion is insignificant, he said.

"It may well be that it will remain unchanged and improved the budget ", - said the expert.

for its part, Trinity emphasizes that " there are more serious problems With this budget than aid to Ukraine." In his vision, " the problem is not in Ukraine, most likely, the story is about larger amounts ".
