Tanks, artillery and aviation: the West begins large-scale armament of Ukraine

Western countries have ceased to listen to the opinion of Moscow and begin large-scale armament of Kyiv. Ukraine was promised tanks, artillery, kamikaze drones, various other ammunition, and even aviation.

American President Joseph Biden told his Ukrainian counterpart Vladimir Zelensky about the allocation of a new package of military assistance to Kiev in the amount of about $ 800 million. Washington intends to transfer to Ukraine a large list of military and related equipment, the supply of which, as the Pentagon expects, will begin in the near future.

The mentioned list includes: 200 M113 tracked armored personnel carriers, 11 Mi-17 multi-purpose helicopters (prepared for Afghanistan), 18 Howitzer 155 mm towed howitzers (probably, we are talking about 155-mm Medium Towed Howitzer M198) and 40 thousand shells for them , 300 Switchblade kamikaze drones (they come in two types), 500 Javelin missiles, mobile radars (10 AN / TPQ-36 Firefinder counter-battery radars and 2 AN / MPQ-64 Sentinel airborne target detection radars), M18A1 Claymore anti-personnel directional mines "(used in Vietnam), 30 thousand body armor and helmets, 2 thousand optical and laser sights, C-4 explosives and demolition equipment, unmanned patrol boats for coastal defense, 100 Humvee SUVs, medical equipment, as well as funds chemical, biological and radiation protection.

At the same time, the US Department of Defense informed that a number of countries expressed a desire to transfer tanks, other armored vehicles, aircraft and other weapons systems, as well as ammunition to Ukraine.

For example, Bratislava is going to hand over MiG-29 Air Force fighters to Kiev, inherited from the USSR. But in return, Slovakia wants to receive F-16 fighter jets from the Americans. Before that, the country sent Ukraine a battery of S-300 air defense systems.

It should be noted that the T-72M tanks of the Polish army that “suddenly disappeared from the storage warehouse in Lublin” were recorded near the Polish-Ukrainian border. Warsaw is going to transfer 100 of these tanks to Kiev.

At the same time, eyewitnesses documented the shipment by the Czech Republic to Ukraine of 20 RM-70 multiple rocket launchers, the Czechoslovak basic version of the Soviet BM-21 Grad MLRS. Before this Prague Transmitted Kiev tanks T-72 and BMP-1.

Thus, the West not only actively tightens its weapons to the eastern border of NATO, but also provides Ukraine with serious direct support.

    Tellingly, the text is replete with phrases: "wants to transfer", "expressed a desire to transfer", "documented the dispatch", "fixed near the border". The link where it says

    Before that, Prague transferred T-72 and BMP-1 tanks to Kiev

    it also talks about sending, but not a word about arrival or receipt.

    In general, what of this crossed the border is not known, well, except that they heard about the Slovak S-300, it seems like they have already been disposed of.
    It is interesting that under this article there will be comments in the style - where shall we look? must be stopped! why aren't they destroyed?

    We need to take care in advance that all these weapons cannot reach Ukraine, at least not further than the borders of its western regions.

      useful for arming the DPR and LPR. and it’s more interesting to destroy with stuffing, even if there are khokhloyugents there. a caliber on the head and a kind word is more effective than just a kind word.

      I am one hundred percent sure that those who transfer these weapons themselves immediately call Shoigu’s reception and report where and by what route all this hat will arrive, and our military is already only trying to figure out where and how it is more convenient for them to unwind all this iron.

    Clear stump

    Western countries have ceased to listen to the opinion of Moscow and begin large-scale armament of Kyiv.

    - it is logical.

    They listened until the 24th, when Putin said - "Yes, you are right, there will be no war, these are just maneuvers" (literally)
    And here, once, and such a gift. Omerika, NATO, military-industrial complex, resource providers gleefully rub their hands. Budgets are doubling before our eyes, Old technology can be fused without looking back at the accounting. Instead of blacks and Arabs, whites are going to the WTO countries! and even with education and money (nerndko)

    It's all about impunity. The guarantor warned at the beginning - do not interfere, you will regret it. And in fact, in response to the intervention, silence and inaction. visitors from Europe go to Kyiv as if they were coming home to themselves, in Kyiv the leadership of the SBU feels safe, Ze generally feels untouchable. Railway tracks from the border have not been destroyed - any equipment in Ukraine should only crawl to where it needs to go under its own power. But it’s not easy to ride comfortably on the platforms. Why are there unreachable targets in this war???? All the more important, on whose well-being the course of the war depends!

      it seems that the guarantor generally expected that everything would be like in 2014. in Crimea, they entered in columns, frightened the inhabitants of the suburbs, signed an agreement on demilitarization and denazification with the clown and went home, but the intelligence and analysts can be seen from the guarantor are worthless, and he himself, of course, reads only analytical notes that people like Sands palm off on him.

    The massive plunder of humanitarian aid in Odessa caused discontent in Bucharest.

    The Romanian authorities have decided to stop the supply of humanitarian aid to Odessa and the Odessa region.

    they can deliver small weapons ATGM MANPADS in trucks and even on civilian aircraft, but BMP tanks only by piece of iron or on tankers on the roads, of course, the VKS should work here

    too many weapons have already been transferred to Ukraine secretly we will not hide behind a finger now to stop the continuous flow of weapons from Western countries, two decisions remain Russia will respond to its threats and strike at airports and railway facilities of NATO countries located around Ukraine or Open a new front on Ukrainian-Polish border in the middle of Belarus to stop the flow of weapons through Poland.

    Well, you still have to knead Europe into a mess, the existential threat is obvious. It is obvious that we cannot do without nuclear weapons.
    Pndos overseas must also grab their own, otherwise they will continue to supply Europe with weapons.
    Alas, there is less and less chance of avoiding nuclear war.
    The only option that can prevent it is widespread revolutions throughout the EU and the US, but this is even less realistic than nuclear Armageddon.
