"Will allow to ensure the territorial integrity of Ukraine": named the amount of military aid to Kiev from the Biden administration

39

Information has been confirmed that the new US administration has made a decision to provide Ukraine with a "military aid package." The amount of this assistance to Kiev from the United States has also been named.


According to the latest information, the American authorities have decided to support their satellite in the amount of $ 125 million. The Pentagon commented on the allocation of this amount and indicated what in this case should be meant by military assistance.

The press service of the US military department said that the allocation of funds "will increase the security of the Ukrainian border, and it also provides for the training and instruction of military personnel." From the statement:

This will ensure the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

The statement in relation to Ukraine looks either mockery or hypocrisy. It turns out that the United States considers $ 125 million to be sufficient “to preserve the territorial integrity of Ukraine” ...

It turns out that this time the United States will not supply Javelin ATGMs for the Ukrainian Armed Forces. But they will deliver two Mark IV patrol boats, which were decommissioned in the United States itself.

It turns out that Washington allocates the aforementioned funds not so much to Kiev as to itself. Indeed, under the guise of military assistance to Kiev, the United States actually orders the boats mentioned from themselves (also those that were previously preparing for disposal - and it would eventually cost more than the transfer of boats to the Navy), and will also pay for the training of the Ukrainian military to their own servicemen.

Commenting on the package of "military assistance" from the US, the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense said that they "continue to follow the path of meeting NATO standards." Let us remind you that a few days ago there was a curiosity in this regard, when even after repairs and retrofitting tanks T-72 in the military department of Ukraine said that this is "moving to NATO standards."

      There is always something to cut. ”After checking one of the combat units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Chinese fakes were found in the place of American night vision scopes.

    The United States considers it sufficient "to preserve the territorial integrity of Ukraine" and 125 million dollars ...

    Something is not thick ...
    According to the published data, in 2020 Ukraine received military products for 250 million dollars, in 2019 - 272,4 million dollars, in 2018 - for 250,7 million dollars, in 2017 - for 207,7 million dollars, in 2016 - by $ 226,5 million.

      Which (training) will be conducted by the state military. In the early 2000s, a "special" sergeant of some class flew in, from the US, gave a lecture to the border guards for two days, two hours each, mainly on interaction with the police, ambulance, and the population. Received 20 green (flight, accommodation, meals) at the expense of the host. My friend was then a combat training instructor at the border school, and he wondered how it was possible to cut the loot.

    These boats will also be given names in absentia, when will they still be in the United States?
    And 2,5 admirals urgently need to appoint new ones.
    In fact, the United States wrote off the boats and bought them out of their own accord, and someone, after all, on these "pennies" will warm up overseas.

    And with these boats, they are going to "restore territorial integrity", that is, to take the Crimea and in the process to defeat the Black Sea Fleet? Apparently someone forgot to take their pills.

      Take Crimea and win back Donbass for 150 lemons of greenery. This is tantamount to buying a Gelendvagen for $ 5.

    Let us recall that a few days ago there was a curiosity in this regard, when, even after the repair and re-equipment of the T-72 tanks, the Ukrainian military department announced that they were "switching to NATO standards."

    ... and the T-72 can be converted to NATO standards. At one time, Israel even converted the T-55 to such standards. Even now, the T-72s are quietly serving in NATO.

    Over the past 5 years, the United States has provided Ukraine with more than $ 1 billion of "military aid" for which they sold them mainly used weapons and equipment. Question: how will Ukraine give this money? Earth? Well, not those Americans who will write off a lard of debt for beautiful trousers ... Or will they try to incite Ukrainians against Russia? Or will they force Donbass to gouge? What disgusting to expect? But it is certain that the mean will be ... IMHO

      So it’s already done. Well, now you can proudly declare it on all channels, oh well, channels, in schools they will say that the United States has given aid as much as 1 billion, not like the impoverished Russian Federation, and believe me, no one will figure out what is really there

    Dialog:
    - What amount can save the territorial integrity of Ukraine?
    “Only $ 125 million, sir.
    - Okay, for the sake of such a high mission as salvation (before that, having taken it to the skin), we will give it.
    Then Biden loudly said that the United States will never recognize so called the annexation of the Crimea, so in the Ukraine began dancing with songs about this. They didn’t even understand or didn’t want to hear that the “so-called” was pronounced. Well, and 125 million Zelensky personally will show miniatures from "95 Quarter" and it would be desirable about Crimea, tk. there are very entertaining and not in his today's favor.

    Comrades, for whom is this news typeset? Or what for? To lull the vigilance? Firstly, the Mark IV boats do not exist a priori, which already speaks of the superficial attitude of the author and editor to the news. Secondly, the "oldest" boats of the Mark VI type were built in 2015, they can not be written off either in terms of time or operating time ... What's the point of "blurring your eyes" with such news? Underestimating the enemy always leads to an overestimation of one's own strength. The consequences can be very sad ...
