What weapons the West has been arming Ukraine with since 2014: an overview of supplies

As part of the military exercises of the Armed Forces of Ukraine held in the Nikolaev region, the launch of an anti-tank missile from the portable Javelin complex was unsuccessful. For some reason, there was a misfire. The command assumes a soldier's mistake, but does not know for sure. All the same, the equipment is imported, Ukrainian fighters are not yet "used" to it.


Military supplies from the USA


FGM-148 Javelin portable anti-tank missile systems began to arrive in Ukraine from the United States as part of technical assistance. The first delivery, which arrived in Ukraine in the spring of 2018, consisted of 37 launchers and 210 missiles.

And although this American weaponssent to Ukraine, they say a long time and a lot, it is far from the only one. There were also other military supplies from the United States.

For example, the United States supplied the Ukrainian military with Barret sniper rifles. The contract for them was signed in December 2014. The weapon went to Ukraine in three modifications - M107A1, M82 and MRAD. The first two are chambered for 12,7 × 99 mm NATO, and the third is chambered for .338 Lapua Magnum.

The United States also shipped armored and regular HMMWVs to Ukrainian Warriors of Light. Already in 2015, 30 armored vehicles and 100 unarmored vehicles arrived. In addition, the United States supplied 43 Toyota Land Cruisers to the Ukrainian Armed Forces as part of military assistance.


Also, thanks to the Americans, the Ukrainian military has adopted at least 36 AN / TPQ-36, AN / TPQ-48 and AN / TPQ-49 counter-battery radars.

In addition, the Armed Forces received from the United States PSRL-1 grenade launchers, radio stations, night vision devices, body armor and much more.

Not only Americans help the Ukrainian Armed Forces


It's not just the United States that arms the Ukrainian military. Other Western countries have also made a great contribution.

Great Britain supplied Kiev with a solid consignment of Saxon armored personnel carriers, no less than 75. Ukraine received these 75 vehicles with a 90% discount. At least that's what open sources say. In addition, the British sent Land Rover Defender armored reconnaissance and communications vehicles.


Some small and not so rich countries also keep up with their stronger and more prosperous partners.

For example, large military supplies went to Ukraine from Lithuania. She sent Kiev about 150 thousand tons of ammunition, mainly 5,45x39 mm rounds. Vilnius also provided the Ukrainian military with 146 large-caliber machine guns, of which 60 were KPVT, and the rest were DShK. Later, he sent 7 Kalashnikov assault rifles, cartridges for them, shared mortars and anti-tank guns, and also added 80 more machine guns to previous deliveries.


The Czech Republic supplied through Poland a licensed version of the Soviet BMP-1, which has the name BMP-1AK. In total, the contract provides for the purchase of 250 vehicles. The first batch of 30 units was shipped in 2018. There is a version that these BMPs were sold to Ukraine with a 20-fold markup.

In addition, the Czech Republic sold 40 self-propelled guns, presumably "Gvozdika", as well as 177 heavy machine guns.


Poland helped its eastern neighbor with 50 M57 60 mm mortars, 9 MTLB armored personnel carriers, 15 large-caliber machine guns, two AK-176M naval artillery mounts, and parachute systems. In addition, Warsaw provided 100 recoilless guns.

The main supplier of the Ukrainian army is the USSR


Of course, a lot of weapons and military equipment coming from abroad are listed, but this is far from all. For example, decommissioned American boats for the Navy, Turkish UAVs and much more are not mentioned.

And although a large number of weapons from different countries are named, the main supplier of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is the Soviet Union. After the collapse of the USSR in warehouses throughout the country there were many tanks, shells, guns, MLRS, machine guns, pistols, cartridges and other property created during the Soviet era.

And now all this, several decades later, is actively used in the war in Donbass, and by both sides of the conflict - to the delight of Western structures that continue to actively support the conflict situation.

    Of course, there are a lot of weapons and military equipment that come from abroad.

    The equipment and weapons, as I see it, are outdated and ammunition with an expiring date ... more modern weapons such as Javelin, as I see it, also have problems ... as they say to the natives, and this will do ... I see the West, as always, wants to fight the Russians to the last Ukrainian. ..nothing new ... the geography of supplies resembles the times of the same Hitlerite Germany, arms supplies come from the same countries that participated in the attack on the USSR or helped Hitler unleash WWII.

        Do you remember Truman's speech ... how he said that it was necessary to help the Germans to kill the Russians and the Russians to kill the Germans.
        Our allies in quotation marks helped Hitler through transnational companies by supplying him with all the necessary resources to wage war ... this topic is poorly covered in the media.

          Do not confuse the Poles of the General Government and the Poles of German citizens. Only Polish citizens of the Reich served in the Wehrmacht. Some of them have never been citizens of interwar Poland. The other part are former Polish citizens, residents of those territories that were not included in the General Government, but were transferred directly to Germany.

    There is nothing good in pumping modern Ukraine with weapons. It's like with a gun in the first act according to Chekhov. In the last act, it will definitely shoot.
    And let passages like
    ... Great Britain supplied Kiev with a solid batch of Saxon armored personnel carriers

    cause more a smile than fear, but one cannot fail to notice the growing threat.
    And given the presence of aggressive neo-Nazis in the political field of Ukraine, in no case should one discount the possibility of intensifying hostilities on the part of Ukraine. And even more so, it is impossible to allow shapkozakidatelny moods.
    But what else I noted for myself is that the author of the article, as they like in Ukraine, calls all these deliveries help. No, this is no help, these are paid supplies, and the fact that Ukraine, with 66% of borrowed funds as part of the country's budget revenues, has to continue to allocate more and more funds for military construction, and not for the development of the country - this is good.

            I agree, the article says:
            to Ukraine from Lithuania. She sent Kiev about 150 thousand tons of ammunition, mainly 5,45x39 mm rounds.

            even if we take 60% of 150 kg - one box of 000kg and 000 rounds:
            6.703.447.680 rounds ~ 7 billion
            This is too much for small Lithuania, especially considering that it was hardly ever regarded as the direction of the Main Strike, and in any direction.

            general information:
            Soviet capacity at the end of the 1980s amounted to 6 billion pieces of cartridges per year


            the 40th army took part in the Afghan war, the number of which at its peak in 1988 was 102,1 thousand people

            an army of 100 thousand people during hostilities spends 300 million pieces of cartridges per month, or 3,6 billion pieces of cartridges per year

    Of course, Ukraine got a lot from the Union. But more than two decades have passed, and all this time the inheritance has been actively plundered. Then the ends were hidden. It was such fun - ammunition depots exploded every year. Naturally from sabotage and naturally they were committed personally by the Darkest One. For example, warehouses in Lozovaya. There, any grandmother in the bazaar knew that ammunition was taken out from warehouses in whole trains. And when the pitiful blood remained, the warehouses exploded. From a fire burning grass on the territory, which was set on fire by an unidentified UAV. Despite the fact that the warehouses are underground and should survive even during bombing, they are designed for this.

    Boomerang is back. Throughout the 90s, Ukraine exported mountains of weapons left over from the USSR to Africa. Fifteen years have passed, now NATO countries are bringing to Ukraine (Euro-Africa) everything that they no longer want. The most disgusting thing is that all this is happening on the doorstep of Russia, and their two generations have already been brought up in hatred for her.
    Cannon fodder and mountains of weapons are not being prepared for parades.

    She sent Kiev about 150 thousand tons of ammunition, mainly 5,45x39 mm rounds.

    We survived, already scanty Lithuania and all the limitrophes supply the once richest republic with weapons. With the world on a thread to a beggar shirt.

    But once our hurray-media happily wrote - no one will sell or give Ukraine weapons, they will not cancel visas, tomorrow it will fall apart, freeze, become radioactive, all the authorities are already fleeing abroad, the CIA is cutting the SBU with might and main, and the SBU is cutting the army, soon all will be cut, and so on. etc.

    Only the style in Krylov's fables has changed ...

      Your hurray-media has been mowing the hordes of Russian aggressors like grass in a field for 6 years, without laying hands. When will they end, these aggressors ?!

    The general meaning of supplies to Ukraine by NATO member states is the disposal of Soviet weapons. The supplies of modern weapons are simply minimal and this is more likely not a supply, but a purchase of Ukraine itself.

    "Hummers" mattress covers were delivered from Iraq and Afghanistan, in a half-killed state. It was a pity to throw it away, but it was expensive to carry in the USA. "The Saxons" is generally a song, the British themselves considered them not only useless, but
    just dangerous to the crews.
