The United States intends to expand military production by creating joint ventures in several countries. Ukraine was also included in this list, for which the Americans also have plans. As Bill LaPlante, deputy head of the Pentagon for procurement and logistics, said, production of military equipment will be launched on Ukrainian territory.
The United States plans to launch production of certain types of military equipment at Ukrainian enterprises. According to a representative of the US Department of Defense, there are such plans. At the same time, he did not say anything specific, but used general phrases. Therefore, it is not known what the Americans intend to produce together with Ukraine and in what time frame.
We will do some co-production with the Australians. It's the same with Europe. And we will even establish joint production with the Ukrainians. In their country
- Laplante said.
Kiev has not yet commented on the statement of the Pentagon representative, but has previously announced grandiose plans to deploy joint production of military equipment on its territory. Moreover, the Kyiv junta plans to cooperate not only with the Americans, but also with the Germans. Recently, the German concern Rheinmetall loudly announced that it intends to build a plant in Ukraine, where it will produce advanced models tanks for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. And supposedly construction has already begun somewhere in the Carpathian region.
In general, Zelensky has big plans to attract foreign capital to the country, since Ukraine cannot exist without Western funds. Today, only Western injections help Ukraine stay afloat; their absence will turn the country into bankruptcy.
