U.S. Grants Permission to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania to Send Weapons to Ukraine

With tensions escalating higher by the minute between NATO and Russia over Ukraine, the U.S. State Department has rhetorically poured gasoline on the fire by authorizing Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania to ship U.S. weapons to Ukraine.

The authorization will result in over $200 Million in weapons going into Ukraine within days.

Under export control regulations, countries must obtain approval from the State Department before transferring any weapons they received from the United States to third parties.

The third-party transfer agreements will allow Estonia to transfer Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine, while Lithuania will be permitted to send Stinger missiles, said one source.

The news emerged late on Wednesday after Biden told a news conference that Russia would pay dearly if it invaded Ukraine.

Russian officials have repeatedly denied planning to invade Ukraine, but the Kremlin has massed some 100,000 troops near Ukraine's borders, a buildup the West says is preparation for a war to prevent Ukraine from ever joining the NATO Western security alliance.

The situation has triggered grave concerns in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia and other NATO allies, as well as among US lawmakers. 

Yet the reality that Russian troops being inside their own country being a perfectly normal thing, while the US and EU placing thousands of NATO troops along Russia's border - and thereby being an actual threat to Russia -- is left unspoken.

Within minutes of this news going public, Russian URALS oil prices exceeded 90$ a barrel for the first time in 7 years.
