In the US, the White House is cautioned against selling Javelin to Ukraine

Selling anti-tank complexes Javelin to Ukraine will worsen relations between the United States and Russia, writes US military analyst and former lieutenant colonel of the United States Army Daniel Davis in the National Interest publication.


2 March It became known that the State Department approved the sale of 210 anti-tank Javelin missile systems to Ukraine in the amount of 47 million dollars. The official position of Congress and the White House is that it will help ensure the security of Ukraine.

In the US, the White House is cautioned against selling Javelin to Ukraine


However, as the author of the article points out, the armament of Kiev will only strengthen the separatist and anti-government sentiments in the east of the country. At the same time, it will worsen relations with Russia, which has nuclear weapons.

The author also believes that if the United States is ready to help Ukraine, then it is also entitled to expect assistance from its side at a critical moment. However, at present Kiev cannot be called an ally of Washington.

According to the author, 210 missile systems can bring Ukraine tactical successes in the event of an aggravation of military conflict, but are not able to change the situation as a whole.

According to Davis, the White House wants to force Moscow to retreat from its interests in Ukraine, but this is a delusion. In the future, we can expect only a degree increase in relations both between Russia and Ukraine, and between Russia and the United States, reports Lenta.ru

    Screaming into the void, and even more so, his opponents are deaf Russophobia, the main thing for them is to throw more firewood into the fires of war.

      It would be better if the colonel explained that in the case of the delivery of the APU, the javelins, the samples would certainly fall into the hands of our military (unless, of course, they are already there). Moreover, most likely not even in the form of trophies, but for a moderate amount of money.

      For almost everyone, retirement exempts from the rigid framework of corporate-corporate behavior and mental expression, retirees simply begin to express their more adequate and balanced opinion. The obligation to behave not as you see fit, to say not what you consider to be true, but since the rules you do not require, the established ones puts strong pressure on the psyche, enhancing the state of cognitive dissonance. And when his pressure with his resignation finally subsides (for everyone to varying degrees, some “scoliosis”, as they say, only the grave “cures” completely and irrevocably) there is a desire to “speak out”, to correct the information continuum

    if the United States is ready to help Ukraine, then it has the right to count on the help on its part at a critical moment.

    The hope that the most powerful army in Europe (and perhaps the world) and the most powerful economy in 404 will help the United States at a critical moment? what Damn, how everything is running ... They have the same diagnosis.

      No, everything is fine, you just didn’t understand about “help”. Many of the strongest armies (Roman, Ottoman, etc.) had at the back of the "horde of barbarians" mercenaries or satellite. They were thrown into battle first to identify the enemy’s deployment, the destruction of his battle formation ... History has preserved the phrase of one of the English kings before the battle: arrows cost money, and Scots are free ...
      That's how they are used.

    Quite a reasonable conclusion, but they just need it.

    A purely populist move that no matter how it affects the situation in the wake of the trench warfare, the tanks on both sides are neither the newest and are amazed by the ordinary birds, which levels the advantages of jewels only more expensive and more difficult to prepare the operators

      Yes, how can I understand that there is truth, but there was infa for fifty launch and a couple of hundred missiles.
      And in fact the former’s speech ... into the void! There, the mood can only spoil Russia and nothing else!

    And are the USA ready for the fact that Donbass will also receive assistance?

    I can’t say anything seriously ... I can only neigh that if they are given these mysterious devices, then not military losses in the army’s wit will grow up a bit, because they will shoot backwards, or they’ll put them near the stove, but anything it’s the same Ukrainian army!
    For example, in the reference Ukrainian land with mud lies all night and in the morning he will go to shoot from it, .... and hello.

    Javelins need American instructors to teach the skew-armed Bandera to use this device. And if such instructors appear in Ukraine, in the light of recent statements by our Defense Ministry and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as well as generally aggravating relations with the Anglo-Saxons, it may happen that these instructors go home with a load of 200.

    Do the ultimate goals of the leadership of Ukraine and the United States in the supply of American weapons? The declaration of the struggle with the Russian world is an empty place, for the reason that the country is forming at least a couple of hotbeds of confrontation with the country's authorities, only now in the West of Ukraine.
    Apparently, the Ukrainian authorities do not set themselves the goal of reviving the country in economic terms, the authorities put on the collapse ?! Then you don’t have to give back debts and there will be an opportunity to remain in power in one of the fragments. And the supply of weapons from the USA only goes to the strengthening of the warring countries. It can ultimately lead to the arming of certain groups in the civil war

    According to the author, 210 missile systems can bring tactical success to Ukraine in the event of a worsening military conflict

    Of course they can, but the ensigns need to sell something? And here is the news - the fly did not sit ....

      Which, in the case of PURCHASE of Urkaina from the United States (if pennies are found), will be broken, lost, sold, damaged by the rear-armed operators within a couple of weeks. You can’t buy even a decent cottage in Londongrad for the miserable 47 lemons of raccoons. Ask Geletey, he paid 105 for a house in the suburbs, and not cu, but pounds.
