"Lockheed Martin Presents": Politico Mark Reveals The Understanding Of US Interest In Ukraine

The American edition of Politico published an article about the concern of the member of the US House of Representatives from Massachusetts, Seth Moulton, about the possible Russian "aggression" against Ukraine. It is noteworthy that the material came out with the subtitle "Lockheed Martin presents".

Seth Moulton, after his recent trip to Ukraine, proposed to Joseph Biden a number of measures that, according to the congressman, should be taken even before the "invasion" of the Russian Federation: develop a package of new sanctions, accelerate the transfer of lethal weapons to Ukraine (Javelin anti-tank missile systems manufactured by Lockheed Martin), and also to convey to the Russian public information about the large expenses that the budget of the Russian Federation will incur in the event of a war.

In addition, Moulton, lobbying for the interests of LM, calls on the US military advisers in Ukraine "to be prepared for the worst-case scenario and, more importantly, to do everything possible to prevent it." Apparently, not the last role in this "readiness" is assigned to the American defense concern Lockheed Martin.

Meanwhile, the American company is increasingly associating itself with the armed forces of Ukraine. According to the Defense Blog, in June of this year, LM offered Kiev the supply of fourth-generation F-16 Fighting Falcon fighters. In September, Ukroboronprom announced a partnership with Lockheed Martin on "joint projects, developments and programs."

From the subtitle Politico, it becomes clear all the ins and outs of the United States' interest in Ukraine as a state where it is possible to sell military machinery... However, this is nothing new. Over the past 30 years, Washington has launched wars largely in the interests of large national defense and energy companies. Take, for example, the invasion of Iraq in 2003 under the pretext that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. After the establishment of a pro-Western regime in Baghdad, British and American oil companies entered the country, and the Iraqi army began to actively buy tanks, aircraft and other weapons from US defense enterprises.

    Well, many understanding Americans are well aware that without Ukraine there will be no "Russian empire", neither Red, nor White, nor even "blue". But some dull American "pots", however, like "pots" in any other country, live on the hype, like Politico.
    I'm more interested in how the execution of contracts for the Su-35 for Egypt and Indonesia will end ...

      Well, many intelligent Americans know very well that without Ukraine there will be no "Russian empire"

      Russia under Ivan 4 was already an empire without any Ukraine. Moreover, everything turns to the East. The West is yesterday.

        You industry and the population of the European part of Russia what and how will you protect? Probably "patriatism" since it is difficult to cover a front line of several thousand kilometers in modern conditions. As far as mentioning the East, I will remind you of the eternally hungry China - 1,5 yards of the population, while in the West, at the same time, 1,2 yards of the population (EU and USA). And between these two monsters is the Russian Federation with a population of 147 million. We have regions the size of Germany and a population of 50 thousand. So stop your hallucinations there, because because of people like you, everything will return to the territories of Ivan IV.

          Does Adolf Aloizych appear in your dreams? Doesn't he broadcast anything like that with Bonopart? Multiple launch rocket systems, not the most modern, by the way, negate any concentration of troops on the directions of the main strikes. And without this concentration, any invasion is just mental games for the elderly generals. No one in their right mind is going to fight with Russia and on its territory with conventional weapons and was not going to fight in principle.
