US media: US may transfer 31 Abrams tanks to Ukrainian regime

The US authorities decided to send 31 to Ukraine tank M1 Abrams. This is reported by the Bloomberg news agency, citing its own sources.

The total cost of tanks sent to Ukraine is about $400 million, according to the agency correspondent. Earlier, the press discussed the possibility of transferring a different number of tanks to Ukraine - the figures were both 30 and 50 tanks.



Meanwhile, at noon (20:00 Moscow time), US President Joe Biden is due to make a special statement in support of Ukraine. He will probably also refer to the number of tanks that Washington can send to Ukraine.

Recall that the US administration did not want to send Abrams tanks to the Kyiv regime for a long time. It has been argued that they are too complex to be operated by Ukrainian military personnel who do not have the appropriate training.

But German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that Germany would give permission to supply Ukraine with German Leopard tanks only if the United States was the first to show an example and decide on the supply of Abrams tanks. In this situation, Washington already had nowhere to go and the Biden administration had to make an appropriate decision.

Recall that the Russian Federation has repeatedly warned Western countries about the consequences of arms supplies to Ukraine. All the weapons transferred to Kyiv only contribute to the prolongation and escalation of the armed conflict. In addition, it is seen as a legitimate target for Russian troops participating in a special military operation.

    So the trick with the frigate "Admiral Gorshkov" with nuclear hypersonic zircons on board did not work, the Americans did not buy it. A boom to study the vulnerable points of Abramsons and leopards, to take experience from the Arabs ...

      At the end of last week, Sanya in Florida reposted information on his telegram channel that, according to TASS, Russia had acquired $2 billion worth of US debt. I didn't google myself. Didn't check. But Sanya usually checks the information before publication. He was banned from YouTube for his pro-Russian coverage of the CVO. Kind of a messy story.
      Everything has been clear with tanks for a long time: the Americans have run out of Soviet tanks, they will stuff Ukrovermacht with Western tanks. First, tanks of European manufacturers will be used up, in order to then sell expensive American tanks to Europeans, earn money from it, and launch the American military-industrial complex to the fullest. In this way, Americans kill a whole crowd of hares and cut coupons. The ultimate goal: to weaken the Russian Federation and the European Union, and destroy Ukraine, turning it into Somalia (oh, how right Givi was, giving such a name to his battalion).

        And for some reason, I absolutely don’t care what kind of rabbits the Americans will kill.
        I'm more concerned about the question: who will be killed by these tanks in the Ukrainian steppes?

          31 tanks are three tank companies from which the weather in Ukraine will not change. But if each European country throws in 31 tanks each, then yes, they will do trouble.

      So, to divert attention, the chatterboxes got hooked on the tanks. And in the transferred weapons there are much more unpleasant ammunition and equipment for us ....

            Probably, there are fears in the West that the effect of the use of such missiles will be too loud. The results of the delivery of Hymars are on everyone's lips.

    Who would doubt, the question is when to expect F16.
    Ours cannot say that the places of production of weapons by countries producing and supplying them to usUkraine are legitimate targets for the Russian Armed Forces?

      They've been saying this for a long time. About "decision centers". Even a ship with rockets was sent to their shores. And Vaska listens and eats. What's next?

    In Ukraine, a fashion has appeared to name children after the supplied weapons: Jevelina, Bayraktar. But will anyone be called Abram?

      And they will call Abrams and Leoperds. It will sound loudly - Abram Leoperdovich.

    It's like a warning to an opponent who has swung to strike: "If you hit me in the face, then I have the legal right to break your fingers with my jaw!". fool

        You need to break the arm and jaw of the enemy, and not substitute your own and warn about something there. And then you get a warning for the sake of a warning, and without it, wouldn’t they destroy this equipment?

      You can criticize our agencies. Or articles at least this resource. At least a week or more ago. The meaning of which boiled down to one thing: not to see the Armed Forces of Ukraine either "Leopards" or "Abrams" as their own ears.

        Specifically for Bloomberg ... I was mistaken in this particular case, compared them with another agency
        According to the American newspaper The Washington Post, Abrams tanks for Ukraine will be ordered from manufacturers, and not taken from the stocks of the American army.
        .
        However, we will see what happens and how exactly, then the conclusions will be supported by facts.
        On the account of whether they will give or not give the Kukuevsky imported tanks ... there were DIFFERENT opinions and MANY, in terms of time, certainly more, more than a week. So sho, you ... are very mistaken.
