US defense budget for 2023 will be $850 billion

USA (, - The US House of Representatives has passed a defense budget for 2023 of about $850 billion, the results of the vote show.

It is specified that the cost of 847.3 billion dollars will be a record for Washington. Last year, the budget provided for the allocation of 778 billion. In addition, another $10.6 billion is planned to be spent on "defense-related needs outside the budgetary jurisdiction." Thus, the total cost will be 857.9 billion dollars.

The defense budget contains the thesis that Washington will seek to exclude Moscow from a number of international organizations, including the G20. Six billion dollars are provided for containing Russia in Europe, and the document also talks about the need to reduce dependence on Russian energy carriers. In addition, the budget contains an initiative to impose sanctions for participating in gold and foreign exchange transactions with Moscow. In addition, the document assumes a permanent ban on the exchange of information with Russia on missile defense systems. The budget also includes $10 billion in aid to Taiwan and $800 million to Ukraine.

Now the document must be considered by the Senate. This is expected to happen before the end of the year.

After the start of the operation to protect the Donbass, the West increased sanctions pressure on Moscow. This has led to higher prices for electricity, fuel and food in the EU and the US. Russian President Vladimir Putin noted that the policy of containment and weakening of Russia is a long-term strategy of the West, and the restrictions dealt a serious blow to the entire global economy. According to the Russian leader, the main goal of Washington and its allies is to worsen the lives of millions of people.
