Kiev is going to buy American air defense systems. Where does the money come from?

Ukraine intends to acquire US air defense systems. This was announced on the eve of the air of the Ukrainian radio station "New Time" Valery Chaly, who is the extraordinary and plenipotentiary ambassador of Ukraine to the USA. According to the Ukrainian ambassador, the corresponding request for the purchase of air defense systems has already been sent to Washington.

Kiev is going to buy American air defense systems. Where does the money come from?

Ukrainian authorities plan to acquire at least three such systems, the total cost of which will be 2 billion 250 million dollars.
Valery Chaly noted that the priority directions in the development of the country's defense today are the military air and sea spaces.

According to the Ukrainian diplomat, back in Brussels, where a NATO summit was held in July, the president of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, during talks with US President Donald Trump, voiced his plans to buy American air defense systems (apparently, we are talking about Patriot complexes) . In addition, this issue was discussed with US national security adviser John Bolton on one of his recent visits to Ukraine.

"To ensure the defense capability of Ukraine, the military also needs Drones, counter-sniper systems and counter-battery radars," Chaly added.

Total for the current year Ukraine was delivered weapons worth 40 million dollars. The main suppliers for the independent state were and remain the United States, Lithuania, Canada and the United Kingdom.

Where does Ukraine get the funds in the amount of 2 with more than a billion dollars for the purchase of American air defense systems and probable missile launches, taking into account that everyone costs about 3 million dollars, Ambassador Chaly does not report.

      For example, they can buy with the money that was seized from Gazprom. There is just $ 2,5 billion, if I'm not mistaken. They are probably still going to sue, they talk about it openly. Or they can beg for a loan. Americans, too, probably would like to have their air defense systems right on the Russian borders. Of course, today it still seems unlikely, but life does not stand still. Who knows where the current anti-Russian hysteria will bring the world.

        This is more the desire of the United States, rather than the possibility of Ukraine, so they will combine this into one, under the guise of acquiring Ukraine.

          They have already started up money from Gazprom for bonuses, partially! Pana managers they are, no worse than others. On the leftovers that will be? already paws stretch out many and very greedy.

          Golden words are all the continuation of the development of the Regional Airspace Initiative, which they have included in Eastern Europe: the song will go on to improve the civilian sector, you will see there and Lockheed Mratin will be tightened

      If their own wishlist, they will not buy. And if the owner from Fashington said "We must, Petya, we must," then in Ukraine, on credit, this very missile defense system will be poured in the right proportion. And NATO "advisers" will sit on these lines. It turns out that NATO, like on the territory of Ukraine, has not settled, but the missile defense system controlled by them has also been moved to the very border of Russia by the hands of the Ukrainian junta. Fashington-style hypocrisy. Yes, it should be noted that the Ukrainians will pay for the Amers themselves, albeit in debt.

      The Turks did not live up to their high confidence, but the Ukram can ... while maintaining constant control over them, by their advisers. Here is even more interesting infa that Ukrainian pilots try on the F-16 and A-10 ...

        Well, Don Pedro announced that Ukraine would press for NATO. So the demonstration began with a distant sight (in the hope that someone would drive the half-dead Hawks or Warthogs).

      The most interesting thing is that when the Boeing was shot down, they said that ALL the Buks were sold to the Georgians. a week ago at the parade showed "Buki"
      Georgians probably lent for the parade laughing

      Therefore, at the expense of "welded" - even in dreams will not.

    A typical separatist day.
    Lyubov Sushko: literary diary

    Got up. He bombarded his house from the city.
    Finished off his wife from SVD.
    Without taking the daughter from the kindergarten,
    fired at him from BMD.
    He blew up the factory where he worked,
    and bombed the old man’s mine.
    Mortar airdrome
    overlaid with an aimed salvo.
    Pulnul on air conditioning
    from its MANPADS
    neighbors and senior citizens
    set fire did not flinch a hand.
    Pulling out a Russian BUK from the basement,
    what Putin gave just before
    direct Malaysian,
    for dinner, a Boeing shot.
    Crucified relatives in the alley quickly,
    I started to inject and thump.
    At the DNR separatist
    so the ordinary day passed ...
    From that "deza" my cat, even Tyoma,
    laughed at the corners with laughter.
    I would like to ask "Svidomo" a question:
    WHAT ARE YOU SMOKING THERE, THE POPPERS ??? ......... something like that ....

    To want is not to acquire. With an empty Ukrainian pocket (payments for Gazprom’s money are in Ukrainian heads only) Americans have even such a deal
    will amount to 2 billion 250 million dollars.
    will not bribe. If only they will be able to agree on some kind of barter.

    Counting money in someone else's pocket is not decent. But not the point, they will give them this and other weapons on credit. And Ukraine, instead of the arms manufacturer, will become its customers, which is what the American military-industrial complex needs.

    Ukraine is on the verge of default, but here such not real plans.
    To replenish the budget deficit, it was announced that the country issued bonds for $ 725 million, on the Vienna Stock Exchange under an not really high percentage of 9,10-9,15%. The most paradoxical thing was that it was not announced who exactly undertook to release these bonds on the market. By the end of the year, the country should give lenders in the form of interest a little less than $ 2 billion, but the next tranche of the IMF is delayed and it will be possible to receive it only after analyzing the commission that will visit Kiev in September, but not a fact
    The whole intrigue again takes place within the framework of American assistance to young Ukrainian democracy. Simply, Poroshkov once again offered to fork out for partners!

    Americans were generally asked whether they were willing to sell or not. And even if they deliver the system, it will be the base of amers in Ukraine - they will not give such weapons to the uncontrolled use of the Papuans.
    That is, if we are talking about the delivery of the Patriot complex to Ukraine, then we can talk about the deployment of an American base on its territory - the complex will naturally be guarded by the American base, and not something there in Ukraine.
