Pentagon chief: US does not prevent Ukraine from developing its own long-range weapons

The United States and its allies are not supplying Ukraine with long-range weapon, but do not prevent the development of their own Ukrainian long-range systems. This was announced by the head of the Pentagon, Austin Lloyd.

The US military department held another press conference dedicated to Ukraine and the military assistance provided to it. This time, US Secretary of Defense Austin Lloyd answered the journalists' questions. Commenting on the issue of long-range missiles, Lloyd stressed that the United States does not supply such systems to the Ukrainian army, fearing an escalation of the conflict, but, at the same time, does not prevent Kyiv from independently developing and adopting its own long-range weapons.



Are you asking if the US is working to stop Ukraine from developing its own long-range strike capabilities? The short answer is no

- he added.

The ban on the supply of long-range missiles to Kyiv was introduced by the United States and extended to all allies. Washington fears that Kyiv, despite all its promises, will begin to hit the Crimea and deep into the territory of Russia, seeking to destroy the military infrastructure, and this could lead to an escalation of the conflict. Zelensky and his entourage periodically try to cast a bait about the supply of missiles, but are inevitably refused.

Just the other day, information appeared in the American press that the HIMARS MLRS delivered to Ukraine were previously modernized and are now not capable of using ATAKMS tactical missiles with a long range. This was done in case Kyiv manages to bypass the United States to purchase these missiles. The Pentagon did not comment on this information.

        And what will we do with those who were entrusted with “guarantees” to clean up enemies of all stripes and ensure the rights and freedoms of Russian citizens without restrictions and references to ...? How are we going to explain to them what is relevant for Russia - “a spoon is expensive for dinner”, and “if you hurry, you will make people laugh” - this is not about a turtle ...
        A strange impression ... At one time even Solovyov was preoccupied with "accelerating the process" of the NWO in his spankings of the Ukrainian Vasil and indicative puppet parodies of Scholz, Biden, Macron, Ursula, etc., etc. There are no Baltic states, no, and they will be puzzled by the question: “How long?”

          Rights and freedoms for citizens of Russia without restrictions and references? And what do you mean by "guarantees" to clean up enemies of all stripes? On the first point. Do ALL citizens of Russia need to be provided with rights and freedoms? Gentlemen like Makarevich and Galkin? horns "to them .. On the second question. It is the duty of the state to take care of its defenders. Wherever they serve

            Yes! The ones listed in:

            And what do you understand by "guarantees" to clean up enemies of all stripes?

            The fact that the President of the Russian Federation is obliged to guarantee citizens the right to life, including preventing the killing of Russians by the armed forces (formations) of foreign states. And for the cleansing (if you can’t imagine the process) - they were caught with a gun in the zone of operation of the RF Armed Forces or in the area of ​​\u15b\uXNUMXbthe NVO - against the wall without trial!

        It is necessary not to kill the developers (they will be killed, new ones will come), but to destroy the production facilities capable of producing such equipment. You can't do it "on your knee in the garage", but all the factories that can do it are known, because. they were built in the USSR.

          The fact is that Poland can provide them with a platform for transferring production to its territory, both for assembling missiles and for assembling attack drones, which, according to Ukrohunta, have already been developed and are being tested.
          Here is another stress. The other day, the Balts urged Banderlogs to strike at military targets deep in Russian territory, including airfields, and today this swarthy mattress behemoth is already broadcasting that they are not preventing Ukraine from developing long-range missiles. The bastards must have been up to something. winked

            Poland can. But the organization of the production of serious equipment requires time, money, money, money and qualified personnel. What is not in Poland. This is not the transfer of the TV channel to Latvia.

        The engineering and technological reserve in Ukraine for ballistic weapons is considerable and potentially dangerous .. The same light space carriers of the Zenith type are an example of this. hi

          .The same light space carriers of the Zenith type

          belay Since when, one step away from the heavyweight, "Zenith" has become easy? Yuzhmash, by definition, was engaged in exclusively heavy ICBMs, it was generally the flagship of the Soviet military rocket science.
          And Zenith carried 18 tons of payload into a low reference orbit.
          But in the last decades (post-Soviet) there from time to time they tried to deal with the OTRK - an analogue of the Iskander, but problems with funding periodically disrupted these works. But over the years of victorious fascism, and with the money of Saudi Arabia, they did make Thunder-2 and even delivered a kit to the customer. There were also persistent rumors that the attack on the airfield in Saki was delivered by just such missiles - as if they had asked for two launchers back from the Saudis for "testing in combat conditions". And they tried it. Therefore, there is no doubt that with the help of the United States, they may well produce a number of such missiles for strikes deep into Russia. And if the United States started talking about the fact that they "do not mind", then it is likely that this could happen soon.
          In order to prevent this, and some time ago, strikes were made on the hulls of Yuzhmash.

      there was information that the HIMARS MLRS delivered to Ukraine were previously modernized and are now unable to accept ATAKMS operational-tactical missiles with a long range.

      This is all an excuse "in favor of the poor." They want 404s and reflash back, there is nothing complicated there. And the Americans will make the eyebrows a house - how did it happen ??? And at the expense of the development of anything - we will draw and fly. Let them draw and fly

      US does not prevent Ukraine from developing its own long-range weapons
      And under this statement, you can supply Ukraine with long-range weapons, and then shrug your shoulders to a specific question and redirect it to the Ukrainian side. In this series, there are also stuffing in the Western media that the Americans allegedly "modernized" the HIMARS MLRS to make it impossible to use long-range missiles.

        Exactly! The first thought was just that. If the States do not "supply" something there, but at the same time they stipulate that they "do not interfere", one should soon expect the enemy to have new types of American weapons. They will say: "they developed it themselves." request
