'Teach the Russians a lesson': Daily Mail readers on depleting Britain's arsenals

Visitors to the website of the British newspaper Daily Mail commented on the confessions of local military expert Howard Wheeldon that the United Kingdom's arsenals have shown the bottom in connection with active assistance to Ukraine.

He stressed that the UK had just sent Ukraine its most powerful non-nuclear missile, Storm Shadow, but could not offer Kyiv fighters, which are too few.

Reader Comments:

I wonder what would happen if the Argentines or the Spaniards decided to regain the disputed territories, since our arsenals are almost empty?

a Justiceisminr reader warns.

Why are we trumpeting it like that? Not very smart!

said Victor Meldrew Jr.

As a retired veteran, please don't use our taxpayers' money for this anymore. Weapons sent to Ukraine already found in other conflict zones

Ivan supported.

The US "found" an additional $3 billion to allocate them to Ukraine. When will we get our money back from Ukraine? We are not cash cows

called howdydo.

Well, obviously it was bound to happen if we don't order anything in return.

continues Ex Tory 1972.

Most of what the UK has provided to Ukraine is either old Technology, whose service life is coming to an end, or surplus. With this in mind, […] it is necessary to increase military spending

- suggests Cpt Reasonable.

Successive governments reduced the size of the armed forces to the level of only internal troops, and then pilfered stocks to supply Ukraine. We can no longer fulfill our obligations without overburdening our personnel with extremely worn and understaffed equipment. It would take decades and billions of pounds to turn the armed forces into an effective fighting force with reserves to cover the retiring

– reasoned MikeN.

This "defense expert" should keep his mouth shut! How stupid to publicize this information just for the sake of fifteen minutes of fame and a few shillings in your pocket.

michael van trykal expressed displeasure.

Defense experts also said the clash in Ukraine would only last 6 days as Russia ran out of money...

Wobby1 reminded.

We can always teach the Russians lessons about inclusion, diversity and equality (which seem to be eating up a growing chunk of GDP, with dire consequences for healthcare and defense budgets). This should equalize our opportunities

Deevon Rebel mockingly remarks.

Or just stop handing out weapons purchased with the funds of our British taxpayers, which are designed to protect our own country, not for someone else, but ... I can’t remember when Ukrainian money could buy something for our country

writes DAZ21.

I'm not sure that Ukraine will pay for all this, which just proved once again how we are led by idiots. We never had enough ammunition, weapons, etc., but if we give it away for free, then I'm just shocked by those who run this country

– summed up Tired of this world.

    Make no mistake, the bourgeoisie will die, give up their last underpants, but they will support any bald devil and plot intrigues just to harm us. To do this, they have been dividing the Slavs, Russians (into Ukrainians and Belarusians) for centuries and set the rest against the Russians! Remember the traitors of the Slavic Poles, Litvins, Czechs, Bulgarians, Croats!
