Information Service "Voice of America" reports that lethal supplies have already been made from the United States weapons to Ukraine. In particular, it is said that the Texan company AirTronic USA received a license to supply PSRL grenade launchers to Ukraine. In fact, we are talking about a modified version of the RPG-7 grenade launcher.


Voice of America: US already supplies lethal weapons to Ukraine


General Director of the American company Richard Vendiver told the media that cooperation with Kiev began in 2015, and at the end of last year, AirTronic USA had already delivered the first batch of grenade launchers for the needs of the Ukrainian armed forces.

It is noted that deliveries have become systematic and are carried out to this day. At the same time, Vendiver did not indicate what exactly the number of grenade launchers ordered from Ukraine and through which channels the lethal weapons were delivered.

From the statement of the general director of the American arms company:
I can say one thing - our company supplies in coordination with the US embassy in Ukraine, as well as with the State Department and the US Department of Defense.


The official Ukrainian authorities did not make previous statements on this score. There is no information at the moment about the amount of the contract with the company, whose activities are lobbied by the Pentagon and the State Department.

      Sniffed ... that's the best definition. RPG-7, even a "modernized" one, is not the kind of weapon that Ukraine needs "nosebleed".

            Ukrainians are not aborigines, they are consumables. Or bait, like maggots.

          Yes, those who think about such an operation will be destroyed instantly. Nobody needs them to "think" at all, in the sense of "never" fellow

    the United States is already supplying lethal weapons to Ukraine

    The deliveries of small arms, heavy equipment (through third countries) were carried out even with the beginning of the ATO. Therefore, not news, but another statement of facts.

    I can understand the supply of the same javelins, but why? Do Ukrainians have a shortage of Soviet RPGs, which are definitely not worse? I don’t think ... Probably the old stuff is being discarded so as not to be disposed of.

      Most likely, the main emphasis will not be on the RPG-7, there is a lot of this good in Ukraine, and the main supply will be new ammunition for it.
      But with this, Ukrainians are not very good, and the efficiency will be no worse than that of Javelin, and the cost is much less.

    That these grenade launchers arrive, they wrote back half a year ago. And they deliver, apparently, "diplomatic mail", like snipers, etc.

    Is it micro or nano javelin ??? I probably have something with vision?
    That is, they burnt down all their RPGs in warehouses, they began to import overseas ... yeah, "overdid" how to drink it !!!

    The "old man" RPG-7 was repurposed in ribbed ABS plastic and given an "anatomical butt".

      According to Putin, the heat will soon subside in Syria. It will be possible to deal with the western part of Donbass. And then how the card will fall. It is important to do everything calmly, with a fair amount of cynicism, FSUs of amerykassy and other pig-faced ...

    The term "lethal weapon" for me sounds just as crazy as "civil marriage" in relation to cohabitation !!! I live in a civil marriage registered with the registry office! The weapon is ALL, by definition, LETAL !!!!! And the fact that it does not kill is equipment and equipment !!!

    So the padders have been supplying weapons for a long time. The first batch of dill was sold immediately, without exporting it from the port of Odessa.

    One Satan pipe worth 2800 dollars for Ukrov, and even without ammunition, supposedly use your old ones. Great Peremoga!
