Volker: military assistance to Kiev will not be limited to the supply of Javelin complexes

Kurt Walker, the special representative of the US State Department for Ukraine, said that the supply of Javelin anti-tank complexes would be only a part of military aid to Kiev.


Volker: military assistance to Kiev will not be limited to the supply of Javelin complexes


As you know, during the Obama administration, the United States also provided security assistance to Ukraine, but there was a clear limitation: there should not be anything lethal. The Trump administration has removed this limitation from the time of Obama. This expands the capabilities of the United States to support Ukraine. Yes, Javelin will be part of such help, but it is a question of much more. Our goal is to fill the gaps in the armament of the Ukrainian army, raising the ability of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to defend their territory.
- said Volker in an interview with the European Truth.

According to him, the United States will use a combined approach to whether this weapon will be sold to Ukraine or provided free of charge.

We keep the policy of security assistance, which is provided free of charge, but at the same time, Ukraine gets the right to buy weapons that it lacks
- added Volker.

Last year, the White House approved a plan to provide Ukraine with a lethal weapons, including 35 Javelin launchers. The Minister of Defense of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak stated that he had reached “full understanding” on this issue with the head of the Pentagon, James Mattis, and the weapons would be transferred “timely and very deliberately,” RIA News.

The American side assured that the Javelin complexes will get to Kiev for free. At the same time, its use is rather expensive, since one shot from ATGN costs $ 80 thousand, and the cost of the complex itself, which has six missiles, is $ 1,3 million.

      Washington is actively deploying its second front in its proxy war in Syria against Russia - now directly at the very borders of the Russian Federation, i.e. in Ukraine.
      It is time for the civilian population of Ukraine to scrape away from Ukraine far away and as soon as possible! Where will this civilian population run and what country of these Ukrainian refugees will take to their place? That's the question! I think no!
      For example, before the TMV, Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany refused to accept all countries in fact! Even Poland did not accept Jews with Polish citizenship back from Germany! They, the Jews, as the "extra" population were no one needed.

          (about changes) I meant the personnel shifts in our government, and as for the offensive ... why can't LDNR start a large-scale liberation of Donbass from the acupuncture Bandera troops, all the more so Poroshenko-Waltzman trampled Minsk 2 with its decree on "reintegration"?

          so you can reason if you do not see the full picture, do you think everything is easy for us in Russia? and you know that after the collapse of the USSR, Russia emerged as one of the most economically destroyed countries + the eltsinoid killed us for 9 years .... now we just got on our feet and you demand new adventures, Crimea came on a legal basis, South Ossetia and Abkhazia after the attack on us (peacekeepers) .... well, what can I advise you - attack the Nazis, and if necessary we will help.

        You don’t need to rush, in order to defeat the enemy by a weight category an order of magnitude larger (1/10 military budget) you need calm, calmness and endurance. "A Russian man harnesses for a long time, but drives fast."

    Here is a broad outline of the US position on the Minsk Agreements. No agreements, more killings on both sides. For some reason, our Foreign Ministry is silent asymmetrically in response to such remarks to supply Ukraine with lethal weapons. The US officially becomes a party to the conflict.

    While you didn’t poke your Amer’s beak with syudy, life was more or less. Now Gordon has already declared that Russia has muddied the Maidan in Kukevka. And in the pants she spoiled dill.

    Americans have ordered the project "Ukraine" a ticket to the next world. They deprived the Ukrainian authorities of any option to retreat (only forward and commit suicide).
    Amerikosy deliveries and Poroshenko future offensive will completely untie Russia's hands.

    it is more political help than strategic.
    Obtaining information from the Global Hawk is more valuable than ATGMs, however, a large number of tanks and other armored vehicles like the Ordilo and the winds will be difficult to stop without ATGMs.
    However, the anti-tank systems only strengthen the position, but the swing does not swing strongly. All the same, they play a long one.
    besides reader excitement is not clear? One country recognized by the Russian Federation supplies weapons to another country recognized by the Russian Federation (nominally against ORDILO and winds, and not the Russian Federation itself). Or are there provisions in the Big Treaty that the United States and others should not ensure territorial integrity? That's who can, who is the fuel, who is the weapon ...
