US Congressman: The decision on the provision of lethal weapons to Ukraine will be soon

Ukraine needs lethal weapon to protect against Russian aggression, in particular the Javelin anti-tank missile systems. Kiev may receive them in the near future, said Member of the US House of Representatives Will Heard


What to expect from the congress? It should be remembered that there were two countries to which Congress provided independent allocations, Israel and Ukraine. They provide $ 50 million dollars in lethal weapons. The current administration is viewing this item. I think Javelin portable anti-tank missile systems are needed here to ensure Ukraine’s defense against Russian aggression.
- said Hurd in an interview with the Ukrainian edition of Gromadske.

US Congressman: The decision on the provision of lethal weapons to Ukraine will be soon


He also noted that "the Trump administration has revised positions on many issues."

This question (about the delivery of lethal weapons to Ukraine. - approx.) Was raised by Defense Minister Mattis (James), National Security Advisor McMaster (Herbert). I think the decision on the provision of lethal weapons will be made soon.
- added Hurd.

Earlier, the head of the Ukrainian General Staff, Victor Muzhenko, said that Kiev had transferred to Washington a list of weapons that Ukraine would like to receive. He also expressed the hope that Washington would provide Kiev with lethal defense weapons.

    But who would doubt it was not for the beautiful eyes of Trump that the President set the arms lobby ... He will work it out, will not go anywhere, weapons all over the world will now pour in a vast river ...

    Uncle Sam needs to learn: sell old weapons at the price of a new one, and also give out a loan with a good interest on a purchase.
    But will Ukraine run out of "last pants"?

      They have long been without pants, and pay the debts to ordinary residents, and not to the geeks of Paras and co. If the United States begins to deliver lethal weapons to Ukraine officially, I’m sure that we will begin to deliver weapons to Donbass as officially and unilaterally. This war is far from over and I think there will be an explosion and new hostilities.

          With the supply of lethal weapons, the United States is becoming a party to the conflict. Poroshenko, and this is necessary, as a fact of support for their regime. I don’t think that the Americans are so dumb. Yes, and they can row to the fullest from us. Again, Europe will not approve this fact and the gap in relations with the United States will deepen.

    Will Ukraine go to the World Cup? What about the USA? If not, then we are waiting for the "reintegration" of the republics in the summer of 2018. They like to host a Show when everyone is engaged in sports: in 2008, when the Beijing Olympics, in 2014, the Maidan, when the Sochi Olympics. In 2018, the World Cup, the best time for the occupation of Donbass. We cannot intervene. And so, because of 1978, half of the countries did not come to the 1980 Olympics.

    The United States with its conflicting statements looks like a woman who is not pregnant, but is trying to give birth and is pushing with all her might. Give birth sooner, in the Donbass, your weapons are also waiting, which will perfectly serve against the APU.

    The Javelin complex is a serious weapon. Do not underestimate, If it is given in sufficient quantity and well trained operators, the loss of equipment will be serious.

      It is much cheaper to provide Ukraine with a large number of second-generation ATGMs. If the United States is concerned about the large number of armored vehicles at LDNR. The conditional “third generation” solves the tasks of anti-tank warfare too limited to speak of its qualitative superiority over the “second generation”.

      This is if there is a technique. And if there will be an offensive from the republics. But Ukrainians are such that they will use the "Genie" against any target of the youth, drunk, for example. By the flag of the DPR or the passenger car. And one shot from the Jin Dart will cost a lot to the American taxpayer. A shot at Kamaz will even cost 150 American Tugriks if the ammunition is newer, but 000 in any case. Second-hand "Kamaz" is not so much. Moreover, in a month, Ukrainians will shoot down the entire ammunition. I served with them, I know. The main thing is not to allow them to use real weapons, then they will turn from Europeans into savages and scorch everything that, in their understanding, “stirs”. Descendants of the gentry however.

    The faster lethal weapons appear in Ukropia, the more builders there will be to complete the Sakhalin tunnel through the Tatar Strait (an unfinished Stalin construction during the Gulag). Forward hohlopiteki, the tunnel is waiting for you !!!
