Military Review

"They still need to overtake." What about the boats donated by the USA to Ukraine?

47
Almost four years have passed since Washington’s first promises to hand over two Island project patrol boats to Ukraine. However, until now the boats have not been transferred to Ukraine. In the Ukrainian command, the Navy decided to explain what caused this delay in time with "friendly support."


According to the commander of the Ukrainian Navy, Vice Admiral Igor Voronchenko, the last details of the supply of boats are being worked out. Voronchenko noted that the US is ready to transfer marine equipment free of charge, but Ukraine will have to spend funds from the military budget for their transportation and maintenance. Given that used boats, maintenance and repair, they probably may need immediately after transportation.

UNIAN quotes Voronchenko:
This is the first case of similar assistance from another country for appropriate payment, so at the legislative level there were certain difficulties in its implementation under the current legislation, but now this path has already been determined, it will be implemented under the existing agreement between the governments of Ukraine and the United States of America.


"They still need to overtake." What about the boats donated by the USA to Ukraine?


Meanwhile, Ukrainian journalists publish material that says that Kiev is delaying with the adoption of the US patrol boats in service with the Navy. The reason is associated with the business interests of Poroshenko for the construction of their boats at the Forge on Rybalsky enterprise, which could be supplied by the Navy of Ukraine at no cost. It is known that the boats produced by the Poroshenko plant are about six (!) Times more expensive than American ones, despite their less impressive performance characteristics.

I wonder what side of the boat from the US Ukraine will deliver to one of its ports? And if this turns out to be the port of the Sea of ​​Azov, then work for Russian border guards “in connection with the violation of Russia's sea border in the area of ​​the Crimean coast” could be outlined - as a response to the seizure of the Russian vessel “Nord” by Ukraine.

      Yes, because the Navy is not READY to accept them ...
      This is the first case of such assistance from another country for the appropriate payment,
      Yeah, for Ukraine everything is the first time ... at what every time. They don’t know HOW TO EXIT THEM, but didn’t they try to ask the Georgians?

    These trachomas should not be allowed into the Sea of ​​Azov, on occasion just drown them. And in general, the Sea of ​​Azov with adjacent territories is originally our land! It’s time to bring them back!

    Given that the boats are used, maintenance and repairs are likely to be needed right after transportation.
    The admiral is not in the know. Repair will be required before transportation. Time goes by, no service. belay

    Well, they don’t have these boats and that doesn’t stop them from CAPTURING OUR VESSELS IN NEUTRAL WATERS. But the powerful technical equipment of the Black Sea Fleet, during the training, famously crested skluplki drowning, Prevents him from returning the captured ship and crew.

    rather old troughs, and most importantly the engines are very worn out - and repairing or replacing RollsRoys dviguns is a complete job - it's easier to rivet the troughs in Kuev and put your own engines on them (well, for the rest, buy Porsche Cain yourself black, wife pink., white daughters and let his son red let everyone see how I punish his baby)
