What weapons can Ukraine buy from the USA on the basis of approved licenses?

47
The US Department of State made a decision related to the possible supply of arms to Ukraine. We are talking about the approval by the US Foreign Office of licenses, allowing for the delivery of lethal to Kiev weapons. Licenses are commercial in nature and in fact suggest that Ukraine itself should (if it wants to) acquire arms from American companies.


RIA News cites the statement of the State Department representative:
The State Department licensed commercial exports by American manufacturers of a limited number of small-caliber and light weapons to Ukraine. We have never had a policy restricting such commercial sales. The United States considers requests for licenses to sell and export in each case separately.


At the same time, the State Department noted that the delivery of precisely such weapons to the United States "never had any particular restrictions."

According to updated data, the USA will allow Ukraine to buy self-loading sniper rifles M107A1 (Barrett M82) from private companies (American). The total amount of purchases will be about 41,5 million dollars.

What weapons can Ukraine buy from the USA on the basis of approved licenses?


It is emphasized that the permission for the purchase by Ukraine of anti-tank missile systems "Javelin" was not issued. But such permission was issued to Georgia.

    For good money, and sponsors, if you want to find it easy, the Yankees will sell, perhaps, unofficially, any weapon.

      They didn’t give the Javelins ... Now they’ll fill the Ukrainians with rifles and cartridges of 1913, but at the prices of the Tomahawks and the US budget it’s good that the Ukrainian junta will rise again for loot, and the electorate will get a bike about the great help! laughing

            But all the same, everything is united - the United States themselves benefit from the slaughter in Ukraine, and for the sake of its continuation, they can put under their control, and do not even rule out that the operators of the complexes were Americans, Javelins. True, this will be an open act of aggression, but when did this stop the United States? ???

              Do not get angry, Ukraine at the moment is quite ENOUGH and old Soviet weapons. And I think the bullet from SVD, and the old DShK kills no worse. And the ammunition there is still quite enough, also old, Soviet. But from this they did not become less deadly. Arms deliveries from other countries are still ongoing, albeit so far quiet. There, 155 mm caliber shells have been fixed since 2014. People decide the war first. The point of arguing? The rifle itself means little, there must still be those who know how to handle it. This is what you need to fear and what you should prepare for. Together with weapons, instructors will come first, then "mercenaries". And in fact, it seems we still have to make our choice. What will it be - that’s the question.

          This is not a joke, this is a delusion. "Value" and "price" are completely different concepts! yes The prices of the karamultuk and the sniper rifle may be the same, but the value is -
          no! The value of the karamultuk is purely historical. The value of a modern sniper rifle is its usefulness and suitability for solving the tasks of destroying an enemy located at a considerable distance. yes

    It would be necessary to study the issue of arming the rebels in Colombia, Nicaragua, Mexico. And somehow the question of the referendum in Quebec has been forgotten. After all, they must fight for human rights in Canada. Perhaps with weapons in hand. It's time to attack despite the fact that someone from behind the Ocean informs about the terrorist attacks that they themselves prepared.

    What weapons can Ukraine buy from the USA on the basis of approved licenses?

    Yes, almost any. But the question must be posed in the wrong way. What weapons will remain on Urkain, and will not be resold.
    This is how it is.

    That is, the United States approves and encourages the use of weapons by Ukraine against the Donbass? I personally understood that.
    And what they offer to buy for money is not a problem, they themselves will generously borrow money. For example, on the security of some especially valuable nishtyaks such as land, mineral resources, or the same gas system. so someone, but in the USA they’ll not carry a spoon by the mouth

    I believe that this list will not be limited. Under the legalization of the rifle will bring other weapons. The task for the Americans is to provoke and, if possible, deepen the military conflict with Russia. This, in their opinion, has at least 7 positive effects:
    1. The Russian Federation with greater “credibility for a democratic world” will appear as an aggressor country, hence even greater sanctions and attempts to pressure (UNGA resolution from this opera)
    2. financial costs of the Russian Federation
    3. deepening the split between the peoples of the Russian Federation and Ukraine, which makes any reintegration processes impossible in the future
    4. economic profit of exporters
    6. Ukraine’s growing economic dependence on the West (weapons will be bought for Western loans)
    7. Creation of a belt of unfriendly states along the border of the Russian Federation (Baltic States-Ukraine)

      After the start of terrible events in the Donbass and in Crimea in Kiev, it was decided to return to the military department not only Martynovka, but also the former Soviet air bases in Buyalyk that were in ruins in the Odessa region (until 2003, the Su-24MR 511 reconnaissance bases were based there Ukrainian Air Force reconnaissance regiment) and in Chervonoglinsky (until 1998 - the haven of the 737th fighter air regiment of that country long sunk into oblivion).
      Last summer, the military aviation commandant’s office worked at the Kanatovo airfield in the Kirovohrad Region, which was closed in 2004. Returned to life and the airfield in Kramatorsk. Moreover, for two years a lot of money was poured here. The cover of the runway and taxiways was completely changed, new air navigation equipment of both domestic and foreign production was installed.
      Titanic efforts and considerable financial costs brought back to life the military airfield in Lutsk.
      The reports from this so far only labor front are as follows: in 2016, the Zaporozhye and Lvov industries restored and handed over six MiG-29 fighters to military pilots (two of them were upgraded to MiG-29MU1 level), three Su-27 heavy fighters, one “spark” Su-27UB, two attack aircraft Su-25M1 and one "spark" Su-25UBM1.

      This year in Kiev, it was promised to modernize and repair about 60 aircraft and helicopters of various types and purposes. If this comes true, growth is undeniably impressive. However, the time for the 2017 results has not yet arrived.
      At the same time this year, for the first time in the history of independent Ukraine, cadets of the country's only educational institution for training military pilots - Kharkiv National Air Force University Ivan Kozhedub - began to learn to fly not only on training aircraft, but also on the MiG-29 and Su-25. Little of. Even within the walls of the university, they carry out sorties for military use. And the total flying time for release on average is pretty decent for a future officer 240 hours. Thus, everything is being done so that the commissioning of combat brigades of tactical aircraft of arriving lieutenants from Kharkov does not take much time.

        in the Odessa region former Soviet air bases in Buyalyk

        there, it seems, they poured concrete, estimated the damage from theft, etc. (2.2 billion UAH), there is little information.
        General information says that as of January 2017, 50% of the USSR airfields were restored (less than 2014% worked before 25)
        Same
        The process of training the flight technical personnel has been seriously intensified, primarily by increasing the quantity and quality of practical exercises and training sessions of units and subunits.
        In the course of 2016 alone (which, incidentally, was declared the “Year of Aviation”), 4200 training air battles and interceptions, 350 landings, 300 practical firing at ground targets were carried out (moreover, not only Su-25 and Su-24, but also MiG-29).
        It is interesting that for the first time in a very long time, such an element was practiced as landing on the highway’s aviation section of the MiG-29 and Su-24 combat aircraft

        Kozhedub University works like a clock.
        As for American aid at VO, only future aid is being discussed. Meanwhile, barrels have long been in Ukraine. While javelins are making fun of their heads, unofficial help + volunteer + fund + official help has been successfully delivered for a long time.

          the only question is whether Poroshenko would dare to order the start of hostilities in the Donbass. The ghost of Saakashvili looms behind him: he won’t start, the Georgians will begin to impeach and crap, he starts, Gunpowder knows how this will end and remembers how the Georgians finished, he will have to run. In both cases we are talking about personal safety and money. Poroshenko's dilemma.
