The Pentagon will exempt its Ukraine operations from a potential shutdown if lawmakers can’t agree on a deal to fund the government by the end of the month, allowing key training and other activities in support of Kyiv’s forces to move ahead uninterrupted, according to a Defense Department spokesperson.
“Operation Atlantic Resolve is an excepted activity under a government lapse in appropriations,” Sherwood said, referring to the named operation for DOD’s activities in response to the Russian invasion.
The move means that the U.S. military’s activities related to the war, such as training of Ukrainian soldiers on American tactics and equipment, as well as shipments of weapons to Kyiv, will continue despite any potential shutdown.

Why do we have any “operations” involving Ukraine?
Well, of course, the Congressional and bureaucratic kickbacks can’t be endangered.
I don’t care what side you’re on, but this is 100% anti-constitutional. Congress controls the purse strings. The Executive branch doesn’t get to decide what gets funded or not. For mission essential requirements those are pre-identified and approved. By this logic the executive branch can just declare everything required and spend whatever they want.
What's outrage is POS like you is all for continuing to spend billions on this war. In case you have noticed, you're the vast minority and the majority is getting increasingly ticked off about the money being wasted on it.
Yep. Biden is king. Dictator, whatever.
