German Ambassador to Kiev: Why APU "Javelins"? There are no tank battles in the Donbass

30
The German Ambassador in Kiev commented on Washington’s decision to transfer the Javelin anti-tank missile systems to the Ukrainian armed forces. According to Ambassador Ernst Reichel, such a measure by the United States is a kind of symbol - first of all for Russia - a symbol of the fact that Ukraine is ready for tougher actions in the event of “large-scale aggression”.


In an interview with the news service Interfax-Ukraine Reichel at the same time said that the FRG are categorically opposed to the Javelin anti-tank systems in the zone of armed conflict.

German Ambassador to Kiev: Why APU "Javelins"? There are no tank battles in the Donbass


According to the ambassador, it makes no sense at all to supply Javelin to Donbass for the simple reason that there is no tank battles.

From the statement of the German diplomatic representative in Ukraine:
It is necessary to take into account that the weapon from the United States-it is weaponry that has no direct relation to the fighting in the Donbas. The most frequently mentioned are Javelin anti-tank missile systems, but there are no tank battles in the Donbas. Accordingly, the supply of this weapon is symbolic and a precautionary measure in the event of a possible more massive attack. This is not a contribution to the direct resolution of the conflict in the Donbas.


Ukraine, on the contrary, demonstrates with all its might that Javelin is transferred by Washington as a weapon that “can and should be” used in the Donbas. But just for what or for whom are they going to shoot the APU in this case?

        Did someone attack her? As far as I know, Russia has not yet come to war. I emphasize - bye. And there, like a chip lies, how dill will behave. You can specifically run into the Lyuli. Ossetia let it be an example if someone does not catch up.

      It is incomprehensible all this hype about these ptrk. They are presented as a miracle weapon, as if they were selling an atomic bomb. Well, they will be delivered, well, the militia will change tactics, they will find an antidote, so they will also transfer the captured samples for study to Russia

        Maybe (my suggestion) is that the operator has a chance to survive, and the rocket hit the tank from above?
        I will tell a case from the Second World War
        When our IL-2 first used the PTAB-1.5 bombs, the effect was deafening! 2ila destroyed a column of German tanks on the march, 20 pieces !!!! The Germans were in shock!
        Then, when they came to their senses, they dispersed the tanks ... but at the same time, controllability both on the march and in the attack improved dramatically ....
        You write everything correctly, but when you have to adapt to the enemy it is not always profitable.

    Germany has been directly rejoicing lately. Either prefers to remain silent or makes informed decisions. Are they really in anticipation of the income from transit for a new gas stream?

    According to the ambassador, there is no point in delivering Javelin to Donbass for the simple reason that there are no tank battles there.

    Woke up, damn it. They are already there, while in stock, but may appear at the front end by May. Russia needs to HEAR, Herr Ambassador, so as not to “hit the tail” later. fool

    I came across an interesting article today. We are talking about the entire post-Soviet space, in all countries. I will give excerpts only about Ukraine:
    1. Only in the first half of 2017, Ukraine’s dairy exports to China grew nine times.
    2. According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), Ukraine’s share in world arms exports in 2007–2016 increased from 1,9 to 2,6%.
    3. In 2015, the suspension of exports to Russia and the ban on the export of certain types of weapons from Ukraine (in order to increase supplies to the front in the Donbass) led to a reduction in Ukrainian arms exports to $ 323 million. But just a year later, it grew to $ 756 million.
    4. In 2016, trade between Ukraine and the EU continued to grow (now the EU accounts for 40% of Ukrainian foreign trade), while Ukraine exported to third countries more than two times more than to Russia (30 and 12%, respectively)
    What follows from this. Erotic fantasies about the disappearance of Ukraine is time to forget. No where will I go.
    But what is the interest of the state - Russia in the war, and another enemy on the border, even Putin can not explain.
    The situation is at an impasse for both sides. But the situation in Russia is much worse. Sanctions do not crush Ukraine.
    And surrounded by enemies, not Ukraine. Let's see the latest UN vote. Russia is supported by 6-8 countries. All. Enchanting success in foreign policy.
    At one time, Ivan the Terrible, and Peter 1, and Nikolai 1, and Alexander 1, and even Nikolai 2 in such situations went to negotiations in the name of the interests of the state. But alas, not Putin, for him Russia is a means of satisfying its complexes.
