The weapons requested by Ukraine make up almost the entire arsenal of the US Armed Forces

Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine, on the eve demanded that Washington provide Kyiv with weapons that are so necessary for “victory over Moscow”: a thousand 155 mm howitzers, three hundred MLRS, five hundred tanks, two thousand armored vehicles and a thousand drones. However, the United States is hardly able to meet such demands.

The fact is that the three hundred multiple launch rocket systems required by Podolyak make up about half of the arsenal of the American armed forces. According to the British newspaper The Guardian, the United States Army is armed with 363 Himars cargo rocket artillery guns and 225 M270 tracked launchers (another 47 in the Marine Corps).

At the same time, the 1 howitzers requested by Ukraine make up practically the entire arsenal of the US Armed Forces. Thus, the Pentagon has 518 M777 towed howitzers of the type already delivered, and the US Marine Corps has another 481.

Along with this, Washington is quite capable of shipping the required number of tanks to the Ukrainians, since the United States has 2645 active Abrams tanks and about 3450 are in storage.

On Wednesday, June 15, a meeting of the heads of defense departments of NATO countries chaired by US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin will be held in Brussels, during which Ukraine's demands for arms supplies will be discussed.

    Ukraine was hired to resolve issues with Russia by military means. The rest put pressure on sanctions and help Ukraine with money and weapons. Such a division of labor. The conspiracy took place a year and a half ago, apparently at the time when Zelya was in mi6. Here we must understand that Kyiv itself was asking for this. Most likely it was their plan. This is an important point. Payment for services includes not only loot, but also membership in the EU and NATO. Therefore, now Zelya requires more and more from employers. They have to give. Bye. But the irritation will inevitably begin to grow. Kyiv does not fulfill its obligations and deceives endlessly. Moreover, Russia will come out of the war much stronger. One grain alone is worth something. How will they impose sanctions on a country that controls half the world's grain market?

    What will end first - the entire arsenal of the US Armed Forces or all the soldiers in Russia?
