A large American company will deal with the logistics and technical support of military equipment received by Ukraine from the United States

The U.S. Department of Defense has selected a major U.S. government and commercial engineering company to provide technical and logistical support for Ukraine's military equipment received from the United States. That firm was Amentum of Maryland.

In accordance with a contract concluded between it and the Pentagon for up to $487 million (about 35,4 billion rubles), the firm has committed itself to providing logistics and field engineering services for a wide range of military equipment and systems for military purposes. This includes radars, vehicles, and maintenance support equipment.



The Amentum team of experts will be deployed outside the continental United States, including several locations in Europe.

Here is how the company itself commented on this decision (it was not without pathos):

As the world's largest provider of ground and air equipment services to the US Army, we stand by our commitment to providing the best advanced solutions to support our nation and its allies in missions of all sizes around the world.

It should be noted that earlier an American contractor company received a contract worth $4,64 billion (approximately 337,7 billion rubles) to support the US Air Force in the field of information technology and procurement management. This contract, which will be valid for 15 years, provides an opportunity for the combined forces of the United States to sell their weapons abroad with the delivery of equipment. The Pentagon, in turn, expects an increase in the number of agreements with more than 100 partner states in the foreseeable future. This eloquently testifies to the appetites of the American military-industrial complex.

    Has Russia imposed sanctions against this American company?
    It is unlikely that they are dependent on Russian equipment and components with consumables. And it is unlikely that the owners and directors of the company are buying up houses in Sochi and Moscow, simultaneously opening ruble accounts in Sberbank, while their children live in St. Petersburg and study at St. Petersburg State University.

      So the sanctions are not only about "ruble accounts", consumables and children studying abroad. The arrest of managers abroad for complicity with the Nazi regime, the sharp anti-terrorist need to conduct military exercises along the route of ships chartered by the company - as an option. True, in these cases, the question of steel, you know what, is always relevant.

        Arrest of managers abroad
        I am sure that they do not visit third world countries as unnecessary.

          Yes, and third world countries do not want to quarrel with the United States. It will not cause any problems to quarrel with Russia, but the United States can be bombed, as well as sprinkled with sanctions, so that then the government will be thrown off by hungry residents.

        No one will even pay attention to our 2-3 ships in these exercises. Or vice versa, a group of NATO ships of 15+ pennants will appear nearby and there will be another laughingstock.

        We cannot arrest anyone abroad, we do not have such influence and opportunities (with the exception of a couple of countries where there are no Americans), all other CIS states will simply ignore our requests to arrest American managers.

      not without this, at the same time, maybe they found the "watcher" - logistics (so that the NK goes in an "unknown" direction along the way), maintenance (so that what is gone is not written off as a loss)

    Saboteurs need to be sent to Europe. Otherwise, don't take it.

    Another confirmation that the war in Ukraine is the war of the United States, no matter how much they want to talk about it.
    Has Russia imposed sanctions against this American company?
    And what sanctions can be imposed against an American company engaged in the logistics and technical support of military equipment? Prohibit the transportation of their goods by Russian Railways?

    Well, NATO is drawn into the war in Ukraine. First, weapons, reconnaissance, mat. security, then direct participation in hostilities. We also need to raise the stakes on our part.

    Here are the goals. I hope that the persons authorized to make such decisions will give the Maryland private office a warm and friendly welcome, as we have been accustomed to since St. blgv. Prince Alexander Nevsky.

    So this is the direct participation of the United States in the war with Russia.
    Or not yet?
    Will it be direct when they hit us with nuclear weapons? So then it will be too late ... They will strike not with a month's notice, but as usual, on the sly.

      So this is the direct participation of the United States in the war with Russia.

      Why is that? This is just a contract of a PRIVATE company for DELIVERY and REPAIR. We have a Wagner fighting in Africa, but we write that the Russian Defense Ministry is fighting there?
      It would be possible to impose an embargo on the United States, but .....

    Obviously, minor repairs will be carried out in Ukraine. And there, sanctions can be introduced from the "Geranium" package, which is farther away, we open the "Caliber" package.

    Gibt es wirklich immer noch naive "Friedens-Apostel" die glauben, man
    könne diesen Krieg durch "Verhandlungen" mit dem angelsächsischen
    Abschaum beenden...?!? Das wird niemals enden, wenn man dieses
    Pack nicht endlich knallhart "zu Hause" auf die Fresse schlägt!!

    Russland darf nicht länger immer noch warten, bis der ganze US-Dreck
    zum toten russischer Menschen in Russland ankommt, um sich erst
    dann Gedanken um dessen Vernichtung zu machen...!!

    Well, yes! And our military will be forbidden to offend them - "to whom to open a boutique, to whom to dig a trench" (c).

    The theft of American weapons seems to have already bothered the Americans. The United States decided to put things in order in the assistance provided to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
    We should expect reshuffles in the rear service of the Armed Forces of Ukraine
