Military Review

British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace announced an increase in military assistance to Ukraine

55

Great Britain not only will not stop the supply of lethal weapons to Ukraine, but on the contrary, it intends to increase them, and in large quantities. Defense Minister Ben Wallace announced this.


Commenting on the provision of military assistance to Ukraine, the British minister said that London would continue to increase the supply of lethal weapons to Ukraine, but declined to give details. According to Wallace, he will speak in Parliament on Wednesday, where he will announce all the details. The only thing he talked about was that Britain not only supplies weapon to Ukraine itself, but also helps other countries to do this.

We are increasing the volume of lethal and non-lethal military assistance (...) We are also helping to organize the supply of all types of assistance through NATO and from other countries on a bilateral basis

- he said.

As Wallace emphasized, Ukraine needs air defense systems and Britain intends to help it in this, but not with its own aircraft, but with the supply of air defense systems. He called Kyiv's demands "legitimate", but did not provide any details about the anti-aircraft systems planned for transfer, but later in his speech he mentioned the Stinger MANPADS, a large number of which have already been transferred to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

(...) apparently the Ukrainians want someone to take Russian planes out of the equation, leaving them to fly themselves (...) Seems like a perfectly legitimate request to me, but I think we can get it done in another way by providing Ukrainians with air defense systems

- he said.

        The UK will not only not stop the supply of lethal weapons to Ukraine, but on the contrary, it intends to increase them, and in large quantities.
        It reads like this: Great Britain not only will not stop forcing Ukraine to die, but on the contrary, it intends to prolong its agony, and in as painful convulsions as possible.

          To which Novak said: “We are considering the possibility of shutting down the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline, but so far we consider it inexpedient.” In his explanation, he said that in this scenario, the price of oil could reach $300 or more.
          And so provide your air defense (although where did you get them from ???), we will get more fellow

        Gas for heating is the last thing, according to the residual principle. First, the production of all sorts of plastics, the production of fertilizers, el. energy and the same primarily for production. The price of gas has risen, everything will rise in price. And to cover the gas, all production will be. Of course, they will find a replacement, but it will hit the budget great.

        While Benya Wallace is "building up" something, it's time for Moscow to start "cutting off"...

        For starters, the supply of natural gas and LNG to the Baltic limitrophes. Completely and SHARPLY, moreover, precisely NOW, when they are literally "feverishly pumping" gas into their underground gas storage in order to "guaranteed to last" one or two of the next "heating seasons".

        And "later", they (their national operators, on the instructions of the authorities) plan to increase the real capacity of gas pipelines along the "inner ring" Finland-Lithuania-Latvia-Estonia.

        But... JUST TODAY, the Memel LNG terminal, on the capacity of which they "rely on", is able to cover their TOTAL needs (minimum, I emphasize, only for "survival", but not development) only "theoretically". Those. its capacity will be REALLY "sufficient" only if two conditions are met:

        1. There will literally be a "line" of tankers delivering LNG for CONTINUOUS injection to the Memel terminal. That on a limited scale "Baltic puddle" is hardly real;

        2. The REAL throughput for LNG pumping from the Memel terminal along the Finland-Lithuania-Latvia-Estonia ring will be sufficient for ALL LNG consumers within this ring.
        Alas... Limitrophe operators need TWO YEARS to increase this throughput.

        For this, so that they solve their problems of "renouncing Russian dependence" in energy carriers, sitting literally with their bare asses in a hot frying pan, they need to CUT off their gas (and oil) supplies EXACTLY TODAY and NOW ...

        This will cause a REAL and BIG shortage of fuel for heating BIG cities of limitrophy (small settlements, "for heating" will survive on the "shep"), but the "capitals" of limitrophy are unlikely. They all sit at gas-fired thermal power plants for heating. And this will cause a HUGE price jump for legal entities and individuals, "literally FOR EVERYTHING" and already NOW.

        What will cause, at least, the strongest social pressure on their authorities - i.e. on the organizers and ardent lobbyists of the anti-Russian policy in general, and today's "global" anti-Russian "sanctions", in particular...

        Guys Kremlin, Gazprom and Rosneft... Start TODAY and NOW to "selectively" punish Europeans for their lousy anti-Russian "sanctions".

        Start by cutting off the supply of gas and oil, TODAY and NOW, precisely "for example", with the Baltic borders. Let "the whole of Europe" watch their convulsions ...

        And make it clear that the "next candidate" will be Berlin. Stoppage of pumping through Nord Stream 1.

        It is necessary to beat them precisely by the appearance of REAL problems of "PHYSICAL" and ACUTE shortage (for their social sphere and industry) of the required energy resources. Which they, within literally SEVERAL YEARS, will be unable to overcome ...

        And if their inhabitant, accustomed to the "wide feeder", is ready to "endure and endure for years", let him endure and suffer ...

        These are not Russian problems. The Russians have EVERYTHING. They (social sphere and industry, and agriculture), overcoming the so-called. "sanctions" of the lousy "west" will be with heating and electricity. And, at an AFFORDABLE price. That means comfort...

        Unlike the "West", which, although it will be "with BIG money", will not heat and generate electricity with money ... But which will solve problems, in the regimes of SHARPLY LIMITING CONSUMPTION literally TOTALLY and FOR YEARS. AND A SHARP GROWTH in the cost of the remaining available resources. For YEARS, again...

        And this "educational work" with the "Europeans" must be done TODAY ...

        But they are still waiting for the problem of an ACUTE deficit in the growth of the cost of NICKEL, POTASSIUM fertilizers, which will "hit" both the cost of their agricultural products and the entire metalworking and mechanical engineering. AND

        And Vaterland, with his "Scholz" prisoner of war of the American occupation regime, will not be the last person involved here ...

      The first "volunteers" from Britain are already writing about themselves. It is reported that in the training center, which is kept by the Georgian Mamuka, who has settled in Ukraine (by the way, he has three such centers), all instructors are former US and UK special forces, so there is no language barrier. In Latvia, meanwhile, there were three volunteers who wanted to fight in Ukraine.

          One of the first was 74-year-old reserve major Ian Cunningham, who hopes to deal with organizational issues - he himself says that it is too late for him to fight. I did not meet with journalists - he fears that the base will be found and bombed. They use the "Signal" messenger for communication - it is believed that it cannot be hacked.

    A lot of garbage has been left in warehouses since the last Cold War, we must use the "good" case, especially since it was created by ourselves.
