A possible breakthrough of the Russian Armed Forces through the Suwalki corridor prevents the Pentagon from supplying weapons to Kyiv


The United States may seriously reduce the volume of military assistance to Ukraine. In any case, the US military insists on this. High-ranking Pentagon officials have repeatedly stated that the stocks of weapons in the United States have noticeably dried up. And in the event of a direct military clash with Russia or with any other country in the world, the American army will simply have nothing to fight with, writes Foreign Policy.


The United States has already supplied Kyiv with a significant number of Stinger and Javelin complexes, as well as 155 mm artillery systems and MLRS. These deliveries led to a decrease in the level of stockpile of ammunition necessary for the conduct of the war by the Americans themselves. U.S. military officials have repeatedly pointed out to lawmakers that the munitions thresholds envisaged by the Pentagon’s military plans, for example, for a possible U.S. and NATO war with Russia, which could include a military scenario of a Russian military breakthrough into the Kaliningrad region through the Suwalki Gap, prevent the United States from sending more ammunition to Ukraine.

Such statements by officials from the Pentagon greatly irritate US congressmen, who believe that arms supplies to Kyiv should not only continue, but also increase their volume. Legislators, for example, are very dissatisfied with the plans of the military to supply Ukraine with an additional shipment of weapons worth $275 million. According to the inhabitants of Capitol Hill, this amount of assistance is too small.

According to international experts, fierce discussions between the military and politicians in the United States may have a negative impact on the volume of arms supplies to Kyiv. The arguments of the former clearly outweigh here. In the Pentagon, first of all, they think about their own security. After all, it is from the generals that in which case there will be a demand for the actions and security of the army.

Congressmen, on the other hand, can afford to make populist statements without regard to the real state of affairs, because in a real military conflict they will simply wash their hands of it.

    It is possible to stop the flow of weapons to Ukraine with a single strike of a single Kinzhal missile with a nuclear warhead at the Beskydy tunnel in the Lviv region.
    And also officially add that the next "Dagger" will fly to Polish Rzeszow.
    When a Ukrainian air defense missile fell on Polish territory, an acute shortage of toilet paper arose immediately in Europe and in the White House.
    And this is only from the assumption about the possibility of a Russian response.
    And now, after the shelling of the airfield of strategic aviation of the Russian Federation, what and whom to be ashamed of? American grandfather with progressive dementia?
    After the destruction of the tunnel, who will risk being the first to be destroyed?
    If only there was a will...

      I am convinced that we need to start from Rzeszow, and announce the next strike on the pentagon, well, or whatever else in the states will fall under the warhead. Of course, there is a risk for the most serious batch after that, but all the snot will immediately stop, and the clown's capitulation will follow instantly

      "Dagger" with a nuclear warhead through the Beskid tunnel

      they already hit him, with a simple "caliber" - apparently they didn't hit very well - they damaged it "near-yes-nearby" they fixed everything in a couple of days ...
      there were no more attempts - to see the Kremlin was "banned" ...
      it's a pity...
      if you get straight into the tunnel (as they did pin do sy through the caves in Afghanistan), then the usual charge is enough for sealing.,.
      there is still an old one that is closed, it would not hurt to process it too, just in case ...
      plus, to level the "stations" for changing wheel sets near the Polish and Romanian borders ...
      Everyone was talking about this back in March...
      but the thirst for profit does not give peace to the Kremlin and others like it ...

        You have strange logic. For the sake of profit, the Kremlin should not have started NVO at all! And in the case of a nix, blame it on pre-prepared warm places.

          learn materiel, then you will not see oddities ...
          having screwed up Ukraine since the late 80s, and all the 90s were busy tearing apart the legacy of the RSFSR, our tops decided to "return" what was lost ...
          politically, nothing came of them, starting with Pavlovsky's attempts with elections ...
          then Maidans, etc...
          in short, they were told that they were expected there - they decided to go in and put their "godfather" in a Kiev chair ...
          but the mind was not enough, hence the failure ...
          although they have already begun to pick up their hands since 2015 ...
          and these are already "fresh" movers ...

            And where is the materiel? On the picture ? This is written at the level of the populist rhetoric of the communists, designed for the layman of the Soviet temper. Or maybe your vague guesses about the "godfather"?

            Here, in order for the factories ... to have ... an owner ... and a CBO is started

            - is it analytics?

              no one here, your educational program, was engaged in contracting ...
              you are not even able to distinguish conclusions from analytics ...

                "Conclusions" may be the product of "analytics" - there is no contradiction here.
                And the above-voiced conclusion is so far-fetched that it just seems like a mockery of common sense. Whenever I hear something like this, it makes me boil. The world is much more complex.

                If you do not understand anything about what is happening, then you are on the right track. If it seems to you that you understood everything - something is wrong, somewhere you made a mistake and did not take into account something.

                You can write down the wisdom, he just came up with.

    Obscurantists Moscow continue to trade through Ukraine. This is the only logical explanation. They don't want to talk about it out loud. Kind of like patriots.
    Each wagon (truck) passing from the West is the death of Russian military and civilians. The Kremlin's army is for us. And the people have no control over them. Everywhere dzhimordy. Not a single policeman was sent to the front, they are needed here.

      And every wagon (truck) is jobs, rosy dreams of an "economy torn to shreds" ... Of course, there are bullshit, where without them. If you do not see another logical explanation, this does not mean that it does not exist.

    U.S. military officials have repeatedly pointed out to lawmakers that the munitions thresholds envisaged by the Pentagon’s military plans, for example, for a possible U.S. and NATO war with Russia, which could include a military scenario of a Russian military breakthrough into the Kaliningrad region through the Suwalki Gap, prevent the United States from sending more ammunition to Ukraine.

    Understood nothing.
    First, even if the hypothetical Suwalki corridor is pierced by the Russian army, its practical value will be equal to zero - because it will be shot through by NATO forces from two sides, through and to death. Possible working solutions for the hypothetical release of the Kaliningrad region are completely different.
    Secondly, how will this very corridor interfere with the supply of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from the West? No way. For daily, methodical and effective counteraction to the supply of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with weapons and ammunition, we need not the mythical Suwalki corridor, but the relevant orders of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, and control over their execution.

      It just needs something "optimistic" to write. Like: "Look, the United States and NATO are afraid of breaking through the Suwalki corridor." They are afraid, yes. Maybe it’s better to explain what they promised, to the same NATO and the United States, so that they would not completely blockade the Kaliningrad region and would allow it to continue to supply it, in the conditions of the North-East Military District? wink
