Military Review

White House: the supply of non-lethal weapons to Ukraine will continue

41
The United States will continue to supply non-lethal weapons to the Ukrainian government, reports RIA News Statement by Assistant to the President of the United States for National Security Herbert McMaster.




Ukrainians are taking significant steps to implement government and military reforms. Supplies of non-lethal assistance strengthen Kiev’s defense capabilities,
said MacMaster.

He also spoke on the relationship between Washington and Moscow.

We must resist the destabilizing behavior of Russia,
The official said, noting that in recent years it has "increased significantly."

He referred to such actions as “attempts to undermine democracies” in the West, as well as the spread of some “disinformation, propaganda aimed at splitting the public”.

At the same time, according to McMaster, the White House should avoid a global conflict with Moscow.

We want to avoid a global conflict with Russia ... It would not be in anyone’s interest,
He stressed.

Recall, Kiev, unsuccessfully seeking from Washington supplies lethal weapons over the past 3 years. Currently, the United States is providing military assistance to Ukraine, but officially only in the form of uniforms, various equipment and training of National Guard soldiers.

          But the tricks are unfinished: the M-16 can be loaded with blank cartridges or the same Javelin missile with a rubber pad in place of a warhead, and - here's a "non-lethal" weapon. negative

        Russia must also supply non-lethal ones (those that DO NOT FLY, i.e. not planes or rockets). Do not be limited to the supply of gum. help

    The "Javelins" are notorious ... The militias overpowered 82 mm mines with RPG 7 to launch. At 1.5 km. Just a sleeve - grind the adapter! Cheap and angry ...

    Everyone is already tired of the United States "defending democracy" around the world, under this slogan it is no longer possible to push through their own interests. The United States is becoming a clear and open enemy of Russia, I do not think that they will gain anything from this, and we will see this very soon.

    US will continue to deliver non-lethal weapons
    And small arms, grenade launchers, which were successfully supplied before that, and armored vehicles and heavy weapons through third countries. Hiding behind the necessity of a Congress decision on the supply of lethal weapons, which, as it turned out, is a simple bureaucratic formality, they deliver without any decisions.

    Why just got niggas in Boston and Philadelphia did not provide our non-lethal but very earthly weapons .Snachala found in Lviv with the help of these clowns. then they were taught the word javelin, then they wrote down their fiery speech on the iron and decided to make a fuss. Where are our friends Latins and Nigers, why are they not armed. Or again Brighton analysts missed the letter p in the memos on Old Square

    The USA is destroying democracy and the foundations of international law around the world, and especially in Ukraine: with the help of criminals and fascists, they have occupied the country, now freedom is in Ukraine

    The people of Ukraine are deprived of basic human rights - you cannot provide for your basic needs, you cannot object to illegitimate gang power, you cannot elect worthy people to the governing bodies. Terror in Ukraine continues and takes on new dangerous trends: the people of Ukraine do not want to fight with Russia, therefore, uninhabited Ishilists and Islamists are imported from Bl.Vostok, the basis is being created for starting a terrorist war against Russia in Ukraine
    the population of Donbass plunged into the wild Middle Ages, where the life of a person, his property necessary for life are not taken into account at all and does not cost anything. No one is responsible for the robberies, violence, murders that are being repaired by the Armed Forces, national battalions and volunteer battalions, recruited from released criminals

    Whatever formulations are used, this is all semantics; it is not yet known what will be more effective in practice, a dozen javelins or, for example, equipping a unit with secure communications and night optics. So the difference between the concepts of "lethal" and "non-lethal" is small, but the time for mastering new equipment and combat coordination is primary, it is easier to supply specific weapons to units already equipped with the basic version, which is likely to happen ...

    Yes, it's all clear! We agree with you! To do what? For too long, they (the mattresses) were allowed to do this, but starting with corn maize, they chopped bitches under themselves ... The result is Nato at the borders, there is no base around the ball, Yugoslavia, the outskirts are in chaos ... etc ...

      It’s just that more modern weapons will appear in the Donbass, in much larger numbers and nothing will change without a change of power in Kiev. After the change, the Natsiks will come to power, who will start a war, as a result of which the Donetsk will come to power in Kiev. Here somewhere, neither the USA nor the West can do anything, they will continue to scream and rave.
