See, this is why you need to get off the right wing news outlets. That stuff is poison.
Although not officially in NATO, GWB and Obama both backed Ukraine. You should also look up the rhetoric of right wing politicians regarding their support for Ukraine before Trump got involved. So yeah, they may not be as close to us as the UK, but we had backed them because we know what Putin is up to in wanting to spread his love throughout europe.
Think about this for a second. We just went through a week where we told people who supported our troops in Iraq that they can't come into our country because they were from war zones. Now we're going to back out of supporting Ukraine as well....something that we promised them we would do if Russia came knocking.
Our credibility as a country has gone to sh it since Trump showed up. Unfortunately, I fear that it is already too late. Putin knew that with a Trump presidency, we would in-fight with each other while he makes his move. Brilliant for him, bad for the world.

Sorry, you're gonna need a better source.
Interestingly this video looks suspiciously similar to one of an artillery night training exercise a couple of months back. hmm...
