The Pentagon has accelerated military purchases to replenish the depleted arsenals due to assistance to Ukraine

Since February 2022, the United States has sent military assistance to Ukraine totaling $17,9 billion. This assistance includes weapons, military and special equipment, and ammunition. However, such large-scale deliveries naturally led to the depletion of military stocks in the United States itself.


According to Reuters, the US Army command decided to accelerate the purchase of new weapons in order to replenish those empty due to deliveries. weapons Ukraine arsenals. This was announced to the agency by the Deputy Secretary of the US Army for Procurement, Technology and Supply Douglas Bush.

The military official emphasized that now a series of actions will be carried out simultaneously, and not sequentially. This will speed up the conclusion of contracts with suppliers. The total value of the contracts is $2,6 billion. First of all, this includes the cost of deliveries of new missiles and ammunition for the American army.

The rate of awarding contracts is already 15% higher than prescribed in the internal regulations of the US Department of Defense. The Pentagon expects that thanks to such a speed in the execution of contracts, they will be able to quickly replenish arsenals.

On the other hand, the American military industry also receives additional capacity utilization, which means high incomes and jobs for numerous specialists - engineers and workers. Therefore, in the end, the American "defense industry" remains the main beneficiary of the events in Ukraine. However, there is a limit to everything. They cannot endlessly promote military production programs for deliveries to Ukraine in the United States, since the program itself is not based on receiving funds from the one to whom it is supplied, but on the next promotion of the printing press. In other words, funds are thrown into the furnace only to confront Russia with Ukrainian hands - with an unpredictable outcome.

    Well, there's only one way out. The complete destruction of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, so that there is no one to use these weapons. Russia has no strength, but rather political will to prevent the supply of weapons to Ukraine.

      Or, as an option, the destruction of the logistics scheme for the supply of weapons at the border and the destruction of accumulated weapons at large hubs.

    Speeding up production often leads to a decrease in quality, or does the American Quality Control Department have no problems?

      And they were not going to speed up production. They undertook to put stamps on the contract quickly. hi
      Another thing strikes me - they put on 17.8 million, and signed contracts for 2.6 billion. Incomparable amounts, they saw powerfully).

    fool When will we start writing adequately, scribblers? Not shopping, but...
    Contracting rates are already 15% higherthan prescribed in the internal regulations of the US Department of Defense.
    The conclusion of a contract on time is a tiny part of the procurement. And its reduction will not necessarily lead to a reduction in the time of military purchases. request

    Those. realizing the hopelessness of the situation emerging for Russia, the author tries to hope that they say 30 trillion. public debt and 20 years of stories that this cannot go on forever should reassure us that there is a risk that they will overstrain. Uh, well, until February 24, it would still be possible to dispute, but now such hopes no longer convince, now first give a victory, everything else is not interesting

      20 years of stories that this cannot go on forever should reassure us that there is a risk and they will overstrain.

      Why only 20 years?

      We've been sitting here for a long time...

        Why did they correct it? It wasn’t 51 years old. Bretton Wood was signed only at the end of 51, and not all. But our economists figured it all out even then. But there were rats.

          Bretton Wood only signed at the end of 51

          The Bretton Woods conference was held in the summer of 1944.
          The agreement was adopted and signed at the same time, at the conference. The USSR, by the way, also signed it, although it did not ratify it later.

    There can be no doubt that the era of the arms race has begun. Now everyone will stock up to the maximum, as during the Cold War.

        This is one of the main problems in the production of weapons.
        Therefore, they think ten times before making a decision to allocate money for production. But now the decision seems to have already been made.

      It is possible to doubt. The most aggressive NATO bloc, or rather its member countries, of course, will want a lot of new weapons, but here are the possibilities for acquiring them. request Money-money, and production, and technology ... request .

        The problem of the West is not the lack of money - they have it like a fool candy wrappers - but the motivation for what to allocate it for.
        For example, to combat the effects of the pandemic on the economy, the EU allocated
        750 billion euros are planned to be spent as part of the EU economic recovery program after the coronavirus pandemic.

        And this is precisely along the lines of the EU, and not of each individual state. So if they want, they will find them for weapons. And they seem to want
