NATO equips Ukraine with WWII artillery


NATO countries, along with modern weapons systems, are actively “fusing” artillery pieces that have been left in warehouses since the Second World War to Ukraine.


In September of this year, it became known about the transfer of American M101 towed howitzers of the 1941 model by Lithuania as military assistance to Ukraine. A little later, similar artillery systems were handed over to independent Portugal. Video footage of the work of great-grandfathers' weapons in Ukraine is now being published on telegram channels.

Military experts have long been saying that regular deliveries to Kyiv have practically depleted the stock of modern weapons systems in the warehouses of NATO countries. Ukraine itself, like a bottomless barrel, having barely received another batch of weapons, begins to demand more.


Such greed is explained simply: much of what the Independent receives as military assistance is destroyed by the Russian army in the next couple of weeks. In addition, Western-made artillery systems were simply not ready for the high intensity of the fighting.

Western guns often break down due to a large shot, and there is nowhere and no one to repair them in Ukraine, because many enterprises capable of making repairs have been destroyed by Russian Kalibr.

In this regard, one should not be surprised at the supply of weapons from the Second World War to Ukraine. Western countries thus kill two birds with one stone. Firstly, they are freed from the weapon trash that has become unnecessary. Secondly, they shut their mouths with Kyiv politiciansdemanding an increase in the supply of weapons.

In the meantime, military circles are already beginning to joke that a couple more months of such supplies, and NATO will begin to transfer guns to Ukraine, with which Napoleon fired at Moscow.

    there are more than two hares... the banderlogs who were trained in the west did not learn anything. instead of studying, they preferred bars and brothels ... the technology of the last century is easier to operate. Although if you look at the "highly intelligent persons" in the video, then apparently in the next deliveries there will be shovels as weapons.

    Laughing at the APU is in our blood. Are you still laughing? And about "three days to Kyiv" and about meeting with flowers? Already in Moscow, they are equipping shelters in underground parking lots. Are you still laughing?
    There is no difference between dying from a new gun or from an old one, it hurts the same way. But to stop this continuous flow of weapons is not able.

    It’s strange somehow to “smile and be surprised” at such military assistance from the West to Ukraine. I can remember how they wrote about the “charms” of the reactivated T-62s here.

      So there is nowhere to go - Armats exist in single copies, there are many losses, so the T-62 has to be praised.

    Will the Russian Federation destroy Napoleon's cannons if they are protected by UNESCO as a museum value?
