Ukrainian Ambassador to the United States: Part of the US military aid in 2022 will go to "lethal defense"

42

The Ambassador of Ukraine to the United States of America O. Markarova told reporters about the military assistance provided by Washington to the Ukrainian Armed Forces (AFU). According to Oksana Markarova, cooperation with the United States continues to deepen. For 2022, Washington has planned to provide military assistance to Ukraine in the amount of $ 300 million.


The Ukrainian ambassador to the United States said that part of the finances will go to "lethal defense". In this case, such a phrase means lethal weapon, which, according to Kiev, is planned to be used exclusively for defensive purposes. However, after the use of the Turkish attack drone "Bayraktar" by the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the positions of the NM DNR, as well as after the use of the American Javelin ATGM systems in Donbas, the term "defense" can hardly be called true.

According to Oksana Markarova, "there is also a second component of military assistance." Moreover, the Ukrainian ambassador added that in this component "there is something that cannot be said, but the Ukrainian side will try very hard to get it." The specific version of the weapons was not named.
Also, the Ambassador of Ukraine to Washington noted that the Armed Forces of Ukraine receive assistance from the United States in the form of additional funding through the President of the United States. For this, the White House may issue an appropriate decree.

Recall that in 2021, the Armed Forces received from the United States decommissioned Island-class patrol boats, sniper rifles, electronic countermeasures, and Javelin ATGMs. At the same time, in Ukraine, the General Staff sounded statements that "I would like to receive American air defense systems, including the Patriot air defense system." So far, the US authorities do not dare to transfer such complexes to Ukraine.

    oh well, most of them will be left in e. i, in the pockets of those who are involved, i.e. .....
    and the rest will go to the "lubrication" of those involved, on the other hand.
    The rest will be attached ... will be attached in short, there is no need to pamper the horses.

        Oh, how it reminds me of what happened.
        However, nothing special or unexpected.
        When the West creates another showcase / icon of its own well-being, it turns out / is visible ... a bright wrapper, at least at first !!! and then, when the task is completed, the wrapper will come off ...
        But this is not an option for the extreme, there was purposefully needed a beggar, angry people ... who will be shown the enemy, a caring big "brother".
        In general, the method was not developed yesterday, but .... it works, over and over again.

      The article contains a bunch of grammatical errors.

      You would show part of this heap, otherwise the AI ​​from the Internet issued:

      (the editor took abbreviations for grammatical errors - underlined in red)
      Most likely, articles of this kind from third-party resources (in foreign languages) are translated in an online translator with subsequent revision.

      It will work, even with errors. Only articles in style are worse.
      "Users of the Upper Vasyuki site of Britain said that Russia is the world leader!"

    So far, the US authorities do not dare to transfer such complexes to Ukraine.

    And they will not dare, since there is no certainty that the data from these complexes will immediately end up in Russia ...

    Lethal defense was already in Afghanistan. Strongly promoted the lethal drug business. Now the Taliban are arranging the supply of the fruits of lethal defense to Yu.ES.H. From such a defense in / on / for / under / Ukraine, the size of cemeteries can increase in proportion to the increase in supplies. This amount of green paper must be divided; when dividing, losses are inevitable.
