The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine announced that it had sent a request to its American colleagues to increase the supply of lethal weapons. The Pentagon was told about the receipt of such a request by Will Taylor, who is the US Chargé d'Affaires in Kiev.


The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine is requesting from the United States a new batch of Javelin anti-tank systems


According to Taylor, Mr. Poltorak’s department reports that he would like to receive more Javelin anti-tank missile systems from the United States. It is added that Ukraine could buy a new batch of such weapons from the United States.

It should be recalled that previously the United States delivered Ukraine 37 ATGM Javelin and 210 missiles to them. The total amount of this kind of supply amounted to about 47 million dollars. Preliminary supplies of lethal weapons for the needs of the Ukrainian army were approved by American congressmen. The United States obliged Ukraine not to send anti-tank systems to the Donbass. However, a few weeks after the deliveries of the "Javelins", the Armed Forces of Ukraine conducted exercises with their use in the Donbass.

According to the latest data, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine intends to bring the number of Javelin launchers to at least a hundred, as well as purchase about 400 anti-tank missiles to them.

The mentioned Pentagon mentioned Will Taylor to date does not report. At the same time, it is noteworthy that the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine does not send a letter to the manufacturer of the anti-tank systems, namely to the Pentagon. This suggests that second-hand complexes are going to be purchased.

    For storage in Polish warehouses? But what about the "greatest" Ukrainian developments of such weapons? They are not there, and there is nothing to transport even to Polish warehouses?

        Court.
        At the trial, the judge asks two gavriks.
        "Did you rob a liquor store?"
        "Yes, your honor."
        "What was stolen?"
        "Two boxes of vodka".
        "Where did you go?"
        "Sold".
        "Where did the money go?"

    Purchase of complexes "BOO"fraught"PE"failure of the starting engine, failure to lock on to the target, drift away from the target, etc.
    Accordingly, injuries, death of "specialists" Dzhevelinschikov are possible ...
    Or maybe in order to quickly sell the complexes "received" in the ATO zone - the price matters .. and the buyer (barmalei in Syria, Libya, Africa) will not know about the expiring shelf life ...

    On the one hand, the purchase of "Javelin" is logical and correct (since we have already bought it), since it will be necessary to supplant the ATGM of the previous generations.
    On the other hand, they cannot use these anti-tank systems against LPR / DPR. However, Ukrainians have enough anti-tank weapons.
    Not so long ago, Ukraine bought like LRT-3, to replace the SVD. Now snipers are snipers, not Marxmanns. Yes, SVD is a Marxman.) And this purchase was a very correct purchase, from a tactical point of view.
    Ukrainians also need to purchase AN / PVS-14 to increase efficiency at night.
    It was after such updates that it was worth thinking about updating the anti-tank systems.
    Well, it is the business of Ukraine, what to buy and what not.

        Yes, they have enough of the 3 generation ATGMs. The 4 generation is, of course, good, but not so necessary, specifically in the case of Ukraine.

      Break off. It is not for nothing that Russia began to actively issue its passports to the citizens of the LDNR, so that in the event of an attempt to "spill blood", it would have a justified reason to protect its citizens living in these territories.

So it is here - the javelins are delivered, only to Poland for storage until Ukraine reaches the age of majority. And Svidomo what pride, WE HAVE Javelins! only they are in Poland.

    They will not be superfluous. Given the ATGM war and increased needs, their own production can no longer cope. Yes, and production of this generation is not there yet.
    As for the comments that the last batch was taken to Poland, I want to remind you that the primary source is everywhere called the Facebook of one volunteer, and on his page there is no such information.
    Not a single Ukrainian resource (except reprints from Russian media) is also not present. The official is neither the United States nor the Ukrainian either! The conclusion is fake.
    However, I should not debunk such a fake on the basis of the war; any hat-making news helps Ukraine and weakens the Russian Federation.
    Let them believe in the export of the Javelins to Poland about everything badly falling apart and freezing ..
    we are not Japan of 1905/1906 ... but they did not refute the image of macaque
    (the phrase from the port of Arthur - if there is no overwhelming superiority, then the macaques will fill the koekaki - it turned out to be prophetic)
