US military aid to Ukraine has been successful because of Kyiv's leadership motivation. When Russia invaded in February 2022, Ukraine's leadership implemented a series of reforms and battlefield innovations that effectively used the aid provided by the USA.


Polina Beliakova and Rachel Tecott Metz, writing in Foreign Affairs, make the following points:
  • Western weapons, ammunition, motivation, innovation and reforms have contributed to Ukrainian success against Russia.
  • Ukraine is tackling corruption and prioritizing institutional military reforms.
  • Russia’s 2022 invasion galvanized Ukraine’s leadership to focus on the defence of their country.
  • Ukrainian civil society has dramatically enhanced its capacity by providing equipment and services to frontline forces.
