Commander-in-Chief of the NATO Joint Forces in Europe called for the immediate supply of fighters to Ukraine

Ukraine urgently needs F-16 fighter jets to help the Ukrainian army win the war against Russia. This was stated by the commander of the Allied Armed Forces of NATO in Europe, Christopher Cavoli.

The US Congress held a closed session, which was attended by more than ten senators and members of the House of Representatives, Ukraine was discussed. NATO Commander Cavoli also spoke at the meeting and confirmed the need for an urgent delivery of fighter jets to Ukraine. According to the general, combat received from the West aviation will certainly help the Armed Forces of Ukraine to defeat Russia.



In addition to the fighters themselves, Cavoli proposes to transfer to Ukraine long-range missiles ATCMS (Army Tactical Missile System) to the armed forces of the Armed Forces of the MLRS HIMARS, as well as Drones. All this should help Kyiv win the conflict. This is what the general was trying to convey to the American congressmen.

At the moment, the United States is refusing to supply F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine, despite repeated requests from Zelensky and his entourage. The last "Ramstein", which in Kyiv was called "aviation" and hoped to get aviation as a result, was a complete disappointment for the top of the regime. At the same time, attempts are not abandoned in Kyiv to force the West to transfer at least some number of aircraft to the Air Force.

To date, almost all NATO countries have turned down Zelensky, although Joe Biden said he would "not mind" if any of the countries shared their fighter jets with Ukraine. So far, only the Netherlands has promised something to Ukraine, and the United Kingdom, but only after the end of the military conflict.

        In Korea and Vietnam, our pilots, along with their aircraft, fought against the United States and nothing. Also in Egypt, ours fought against Israel. There were generally direct combat units. And there was no war either.

              No, he said that the risk of a third world war is less than the likelihood of a Russian victory.

                This Chief Executive Christopher Cavoli - Commander of the Allied NATO Armed Forces in Europe - it turns out he has the ORDER "For MERITS before Lithuania"!

                The grounds for awarding this order in Lithuania are "SPECIAL merits for the benefit of Lithuania in various fields of professional activity.

                Interesting, why did Christopher Cavoli "CAUSE" the government of Lithuania so much, that it awarded him this order of its own?!
                For merits in the pro-American MILITARIZATION of Lithuania in the war with Russia to the LAST Lithuanian?

                The pipelines were blown up. True, in a very unusual way. When our people began to build oil and gas pipelines to Europe, we did not have the necessary technologies. The USSR, of course, did not buy technology, but sent intelligence to the cause in order to steal what was needed, and the Americans slipped specially "improved" technologies from which there were a large number of accidents. Shitting as best they could to each other all the time.

                about 18% in the USSR. and 28% for the United States, for 1979. Now the US has 24.2%, considering the face value. And in terms of purchasing power parity, the US now has 15,7%. Also weighty.
                The nominal value of Russia is now about 1.8%. Just 1/10 from the USSR. But according to PPP, Russia has 3%. -))))

            Parades, biathlons, parades and aerobatics are certainly good. But in reality, the Black Sea Fleet looks pitifully unable to provide control of the sea and infantry support in Kherson. Aviation generally operates at extremely low altitudes. In a word, there are no real victories yet. I truly hope so far.

              For some reason, everyone is skeptical about tricks in parades, as well as, and especially, tank biathlon. They also ridicule the organization of biathlon. Just do not think that this is the cream of our army. What pilots, what tankers, what snipers. Aerobatics is an indicator of skill. The best sniper is a biathlete. The crew that won the tank biathlon is the best crew in the world, both in terms of coordination and skill. Having gained experience in warfare, they will not be equal.
              Laughing at them is like laughing at the Special Forces when seven skins are pulled down from them in training.
              Performing at the parade, winning competitions is also an incentive to improve. Yes, even just to go through the parade in the ranks, you still have to be honored.
              But this is not a stone in your garden. This was inspired by statements about tank biathlon.
              The Black Sea Fleet now stands as a siege weapon. Only there are no guns for shooting along the coast. He could not provide infantry support. But the sea then he controls

          You don’t confuse the situation, and what does Korea and Vietnam have to do with Afghanistan and Syria? Here we are talking about the existence of Russia and the final solution of the Russian question, as they openly say in the West. In any Vietnam, you can retreat and the existence of Russia and the United States was not called into question.
          Now there is a direct analogy with Cuba in 1962, when Kennedy was ready for a nuclear war, since it was about the existence of the United States itself. Our people realized that we were breaking into someone else's hut and retreated, the truth was on the side of the United States and the number of nuclear weapons with delivery vehicles too. Now it's the other way around. Or is it we who staged a revolution in Mexico and knocked them out to liberate Arizona, California, lands in Texas? Are these our howitzers hammering on American cities? Is it from the Tornadoes that they are hammering on Phoenix and San Diego? Are we promising to deliver OTP to destroy bases in Frisco, LA, Houston or Washington? How would America behave?

            the truth was on the side of the USA

            The United States then moved the bases closer and closer and delivered missiles with nuclear weapons in Turkey, then in reply the union put missiles on Cuba. The truth is definitely not on their side, but we must give them their due, they are fighting for strategic interests like lions, unlike the "Ozero cooperative" who does not care about the Russian Federation.

            Putin's patience is simply limitless, we are already at war and so many are dying and how many more will die, but he is not sharpening the stakes yet, but will soon begin
            Tolerates the people, everything is fine with GDP.
            Oh naivete. On TV, GDP plays the role of unity with the country, but in real life, oligarchs are closer to him. The same Potanin, who staged an ecological catastrophe in Siberia, did not pay a penny of a fine.
