"This is more psychological help so that Ukraine does not surrender": Poland comments on US military aid to Kiev

The Polish press drew attention to the continuing deliveries of military equipment and weapons to Ukraine from the United States in 2020. Earlier, Voennoye Obozreniye reported that Ukraine received 20 Humvee armored vehicles and boats from the United States. US military aid to Ukraine in the amount of a quarter of a billion dollars is slated for 2021. These funds are already included in the US military budget, a draft of which, as you know, President Trump rejected, but his veto was overcome with the help of Congress.


The Polish media note that the Ukrainian army "is trying to switch to NATO standards." Previously, it received from Washington counter-battery radars, Javelin anti-tank missile systems, Island-class boats decommissioned in the United States, and large-caliber sniper rifles.

Polish readers comment on the Ukrainian "transition to NATO standards." In particular, it was noted that for Ukraine this transition could drag on for decades, since billions of budgetary funds allocated for the rearmament of the Ukrainian army are leaking into the pockets of Ukrainian oligarchs.

A few comments from readers of the Polish press (translated from Polish):

Asf:

It would be better if they handed these Humvee armored vehicles to us (Poland).

Aż tyle:

This is more psychological help so that Ukraine does not give up.

Herr Wolf:

If this is American aid, then why is Ukraine often offered to pay for it? ..

Some Polish readers lamented that the United States "does not give them military equipment as aid," and added that they would like to take Ukraine's place in this regard. This complaint was answered by a reader of the Polish resource Defense24 under the nickname Adam S.

Would you really like to be in the place of Ukraine - to get equipment worth $ 250 million, wage war with Russia in the country and kill 13 thousand people? Really?

Many, commenting on the situation with US military assistance to Kiev, are very jealous of the US arming Poland's neighbor.

    Right. It is not the supply of tractors and technologies that needs help! And just throwing firewood into the fire of the civil war near the border with Russia. And the enthusiastic squeal of Ukrainians is simply terrifying - is there really no one left who would understand why the United States is doing this ... then they themselves will be the first to go for fertilizers.
    Even some Poles understand this (and they know a lot about Russophobia):

        Moreover, this principle was the basis for the actions of those who signed the "Belovezhskaya Agreements", those who destroyed the Union.
        They pilfered what had been created over the centuries by the appanage principalities and "princes".

        The Ukrainian "state" was created by Yeltsin and part of the CPSU nomenclature. This made it possible for Yeltsin to overthrow Gorbachev, and Yeltsin's "comrades" received an indulgence for privatization. So they are dear to us, our "blood" laughing The United States was so confused by such unheard-of luck that at first it was even embarrassed to tear off pieces for itself. So, cautiously, a tiny piece. They were also afraid of even a dead bear.

          The Ukrainian state was created in 1918 through the military occupation and annexation of part of the Russian lands by Germany. It was created on German bayonets. And it was fixed according to the results of the Brest Peace. And for all subsequent events, thanks to Lenin and the Bolsheviks. Who have divided the international Russia into a bunch of principalities - "republics" for a thousand years. Returned to a state of medieval fragmentation. Even Stalin could not do anything about it, although he was against it. So there is nothing surprising in today's falling away of Ukraine. Hatred of Russia and everything Russian was brought up there throughout the Soviet years.

    This is not help, this is the preparation of the Ukrainian Armed Forces for the attack on Donbass and the clash with the Russian Federation. Then the Banderlog and balabolki, who ring around every corner about the war with Russia, will learn how this war looks like in reality.
    And help is when they help develop the economy and improve people's lives. And this, alas, is not.

    Of course, you can laugh at Ukraine, but this is for now. But their military budget in 2020 is -9,8 billion $ 2021 -9,4 billion $ and in 2014 it was only $ 1,82 billion i.e. 5 times increase in 6 years! + help from the USA and other countries. And there are not only outdated weapons, the same javelins, walkie-talkies, sights, body armor, sniper rifles are quite a level.
    I think another 5 years of active rearmament and they will try to return the dombas again.
