About "Ukraine (AFF)"
It’s common knowledge that Russia invaded Ukraine in 2014. What may not be common knowledge is that Ukraine has a fairly developed military capable of defending against Russian aggression. In fact, Russia’s military has suffered since the fall of the Soviet Union since many of their arms plants were in Ukraine. Accordingly, this case suspends all arms sales to Ukraine.
The U.S. has little strategic interest in arming Ukraine. Doing so would only further aggravate tensions with Russia, who would probably retaliate—either in Ukraine or against the U.S. in some other way. Furthermore, Ukraine is suffering from a bout of neo-Nazi sentiment that has infiltrated their government. They have cracked down on some peaceful protests and many criminals walk free.
