The Pentagon praised Russian weapons: "It's impressive"


The US Department of Defense assessed the conflict on Ukrainian territory, as well as the weapons that Russia has, and Ukraine's prospects for the coming season. On November 18, Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin spoke on this issue during the Security Forum in Halifax (Canada).


According to the functionary, everything is fine with Russia with the armed forces, but Ukraine will face great difficulties.

You know, the Russians have a huge army and impressive weapons.

Austin said.

However, according to Austin, even such advantages did not allow the RF Armed Forces to "win over" the Armed Forces of Ukraine. This is due to the fact that in the confrontation, not only they matter, "but also the goals." He then echoed the words of US President Joe Biden that "Ukraine will never be a victory for Russia."

We know there will be challenges ahead as Ukraine faces a tough winter

added the US Secretary of Defense.

In his opinion, Moscow may begin to "threaten" Kyiv with nuclear weapons. But Washington and the West as a whole will respond together to this challenge by supporting Ukraine.

Austin stressed that the outcome of the conflict in Ukraine will be one of the determinants of the global security situation in the XNUMXst century. At the same time, he called the events on Ukrainian territory the biggest crisis since the end of the Cold War. He pointed out that the NATO bloc is not looking for a confrontation with the Russian Federation and will not be drawn into the confrontation, but it will definitely not stop helping Ukraine.

    if the enemy praises, then this is not good, then there are big problems, by the way, this is already known to everyone (everything is sold, you hang on there or buy copters, etc. on your armored radios). "a huge army" - this is when 2 million are mobilized, there are only 170 thousand + ground brigades of contract soldiers - and they started the NWO, against a multiple enemy, hoping that the dill would scatter because of Putin's "great" authority. but for dill, the authorities are sitting across the ocean, for this we must thank the ambassadors Chernomyrdin, Zurabov and the impotent foreign policy of the Kremlin

    Yes! Cynical silence that the war is being waged between the Russian Federation and NATO, and the non-state is a cover! (((

    Lloyd Austin is cunning when he talks about Russia's nuclear response in Ukraine, we never set ourselves such a goal as the use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine, but the United States has always been the number one target for us and is it now, so all these ridiculous arguments are absolutely do not correspond to reality.
