Why you should not worry about new deliveries of Western weapons to the Armed Forces of Ukraine


For the past few days, the information space has been filled with information about the supply of new batches of weapons to Ukraine. Moreover, we are talking not only about tanks and other armored vehicles, but also about long-range artillery, air defense systems, missiles, high-precision projectiles, and even, possibly, aviation. This situation naturally causes concern not only among the fighters and their commanders, but also among ordinary residents of the Donbass, Crimea and other regions of Russia. After all, all these weapons will be used against us in the first place, destroying even more of our homes, schools and hospitals.


It is clear that the danger of all the weapons provided cannot be underestimated. But if you look at this situation more broadly, then in all these deliveries there is nothing that our army would not have encountered before. All of these new military aid packages are more of a publicity stunt than a real offering to the Ukrainian Armed Forces of something that could drastically change the situation on the battlefield. There are several weighty arguments in favor of this, which we will talk about today.

Armament will not arrive in Ukraine immediately


Despite the fact that the packages of military aid announced by Western countries include dozens, and sometimes hundreds of units of military equipment, it is important to understand that it will be delivered in parts. A striking example of this is the widely circulated news about the supply of British Challenger 2 tanks. Despite the fact that London announced the transfer of 14 tanks to Ukraine (according to other sources there will be only 12), at first only 4 vehicles of this type will be provided to the Kyiv regime. The rest will come to Ukraine later and only after the Armed Forces of Ukraine prove that they can adequately use them.

The British did the same with the supply of AS90 self-propelled howitzers. First, the Ministry of Defense of Great Britain announced to the whole world that it plans to send 30 self-propelled guns of this type to Kyiv. However, it later turned out that in the near future London could send a maximum of 8 of these self-propelled guns. The rest are still at the production stage and will arrive in Ukraine at best by the summer. The same applies to many other types of weapons that are planned to be transferred to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. All these deliveries will be spread over months, thanks to which our armed forces will be able to slowly destroy this equipment in parts.

Some weapons will not be transferred at all


Not only will Western arms deliveries not meet the declared quantity, but some of them even exist only on paper. In particular, we are talking about the announced long-range GLSDB missiles intended for HIMARS. These missiles, like a donkey's carrot, the Americans have been waving in front of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for more than six months. Now, through their manual media, they have already promised to transfer them to Ukraine, but at the last moment they “forgot” to include these weapons in the next package of military assistance.

One of the main disappointments for the Armed Forces of Ukraine may be the promised Leopard-2 battle tanks. As you know, these tanks are German, and therefore their supply requires permission from this country. But the German authorities are in no hurry to approve this decision, referring to the lack of unanimity on this issue among the deputies of the Bundestag. According to preliminary information, such an agreement could not be reached as a result of the next "gathering" at the Ramstein airbase. As a result, the maximum that the Armed Forces of Ukraine can count on so far is a sop from Poland in the form of 14 of these combat vehicles.

Armament is not enough for Ukraine to launch a large-scale offensive


No matter how loud figures regarding the supply of Western weapons may be voiced by Ukrainian policy and propagandists, objectively this is clearly not enough for the Kyiv regime to launch a new large-scale counteroffensive. In mid-December, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Valery Zaluzhny, bluntly stated that for active offensive operations he needed at least 300 tanks, about 600-700 infantry fighting vehicles, as well as 500 howitzers. Then there was no answer to this request, but even now we see that the announced deliveries are much less than what the Ukrainian general demanded. All that Ukraine can do with the supplied tanks and howitzers is to stand on the defensive and continue to “nightmare” the inhabitants of Donbass with their shelling.

It is important to understand that the West is in no hurry to transfer a large amount of its weapons to Kyiv, not only because Washington or Berlin feel sorry for the tanks and howitzers. They quite rightly believe that if the Ukrainian Armed Forces receive hundreds of American or German tanks, then in a couple of months, or even weeks, they are guaranteed to be in the hands of the Russian army. And when this happens, Russia will have access to the technologies that are embedded in the Abrams, Leopards, Challengers, etc. And this, in turn, will help our fighters to fight even more effectively against NATO weapons and Ukrainian neo-Nazis using them.

We clicked and we will click


Throughout this story, it must be remembered that units of the RF Armed Forces have been fighting against NATO equipment for more than a day. This is especially true for fighters from the former People's Militia Corps of the DPR and LPR, who until 2022 fought alone against the Armed Forces of Ukraine (already equipped with Western weapons), having at their disposal only old Soviet equipment and small arms. And this did not prevent our fighters not only from giving a worthy rebuff to the Kyiv invaders, but also from conducting successful counterattacks.

Now, the allied forces not only have vast experience in countering Western weapons, but they themselves possess the most powerful models of military equipment. It was not in vain that our president said that we would “click Patriot”, because our army has in its arsenal no less high-quality and modern means of fire destruction of the enemy. We have already pointed out that any German, British and American tanks burn beautifully after being hit by Russian ATGMs or cluster munitions. Not to mention the fact that many types of Western equipment are completely unsuitable for war in the Ukrainian theater. Take at least a 75 ton Challenger, which can hardly be imagined wading through our black soil.

Once again, I would like to emphasize: we do not call for “hawking”. Western weapons are quite powerful and dangerous, and should not be underestimated. But if Washington, London or Kyiv believe that their tanks can break the spirit of resistance of the Russian people, then they are deeply mistaken.

      That's right, "nothing to worry about". Worry or don't worry, Western weapons will be in Ukraine. And yes, thanks to the "inefficiency" and "small number" of these weapons, the "second in the world" has been marking time in one place for a whole year.

        Not the second, but the first! Americans cannot fight without toilet paper, but Russian fighters can. And not only without paper.

    This "do not worry" "experts" have been writing for more than a month.
    And then suddenly reports of shelling, losses, sledgehammers and so on leak out.
    And at the VO they are discussing why, according to reports, 150% of the supplies have already been destroyed, but it still shoots.

    And no responsibility...

      The elite turned part of the defense industry into a shopping center, and they began to sell everything else purely on a commercial basis. Selling everything where it is sold for money, but it’s not profitable for the country’s defense! Then it’s necessary for the country to sell weapons at the exchange rate. Putin built the economy! Everything is on a commercial basis, everything is for export. They didn’t ask the question! why Roskosmos transferred everything to the volute, Tourists selling the RDS space engine, launching satellites for other countries. But for themselves, practically nothing! since 2004, Boeing and others began to be leased? And what if those who came up with this economy could fly to the west, withdraw money, sell the country, have property there in case of escape from a criminal

    Reminds me of the King from the movie "An Ordinary Miracle":

    When his own wife, his beloved, was strangled in his presence, he stood near and persuaded: be patient, maybe it will cost

    Now the US is strangling Russia and us. Literally and extremely specifically, with the aim of killing - physically.
    Before lying to raise morale, you must at least engage in a fight with the enemy. This enemy is not Ukraine, and not even Europe

      is the best suited to such articles that are pouring out of a cornucopia, and to the reverent preservation of the RF Armed Forces of the logistics routes for Western weapons for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, from the western borders to the front line.

      Here "Tigers" just did not click. They were few, but they were a big problem. After the defeat of our such army in the Battle of Kursk, the task was urgently set to increase the caliber of guns on the T-34, which improved the situation, but not completely. I had to build the IS-2.

        The fact is that the tigers could very accurately hit our tanks up to 1,5 km. And the T-34 is the ultimate dream of 500m. And all you need to do is lengthen the gun for the T-34. And it seems that there would be little gunpowder in the projectile, and the quality of the gunpowder is low .. You need to clarify on the Internet

      I watched the losses of our and German tankers, maybe not there, but I didn’t find others, the Germans lost 15 tanks throughout the war, the USSR lost 600 thousand tanks. In total, the Germans lost about 56 armored vehicles, the USSR 000 units. Look at the tank losses in 26 MB. The fact that I was shocked is putting it mildly. It is necessary to destroy these cats at the border, they should not be on the line of contact.

    These are all words, but if once and for all they were beaten off from the West to supply something to Ukraine, it would be better. And for this, all you need to do is create an impassable radioactive strip in front of Ukraine. In Poland, Romania ..... You don’t need to bomb Ukraine. But it’s time to bring Poland and Romania into the senses. They warned 24 hours in advance. At least one tank will cross the border, the entire crossing with the district is 100-200 km away. turn into a radioactive funnel. If the next tank crosses in another place and repeats the same there. And I assure you that more than 2 tanks will not cross. They will change their minds. And they will grow wiser by 100 years.
