US Senator offers to provide additional assistance to Ukraine


“The amendment provides for the provision of important and necessary for self-defense facilities to Ukraine, which it requested, including real-time intelligence, anti-artillery radars, defensive lethal weapons, unmanned aerial vehicles, secure communications and training aimed at developing key capabilities in combat operations, planning and support (troops) ", Says the release.

In his second amendment, the senator demanded that the Pentagon analyze the tactics of “Russian troops and militias” and draw conclusions as to how the Ukrainian conflict could affect production tanks Abmras (Portman represents the state of Ohio, where these cars are assembled).

“My second amendment will allow us to draw lessons from the conflict and study their consequences for the US military,” said the parliamentarian. According to him, the conclusions of the military "will help to promote the use of Abrams tanks."

The senator is confident that the absence of American tanks in Europe "undermines the reputation of the United States in terms of its ability to respond to new challenges."

Now several "Abrams" are in the Baltic States, the rest were withdrawn from Europe in 2014.

          Let them analyze the experience of the Iraqi army they created, for their Abrams, that's where you can turn around. Because they burn even better than our tanks.
          PS.And in general, if the American senators are so kind, let them provide me financial assistance. I agree even with one percent of the announced amount. laughing

        It would be time for Russia, without looking back to the west, to start helping Donbass militias with weapons, instructors, and equipment. The United States does not ask anyone to supply or not to supply weapons and specialists to Ukraine.

      I agree. And in what war did the Americans not earn? And they also run in their weapons and equipment. You can’t imagine a better one.

        That's right, the trash is sent, and then for this scrap metal the people of Ukraine will pay for their lives and how much more of the working population will lose.

    Of course, you need to help dill, but the main emphasis should not be on the military, but on humanitarian supplies! The country simply needs to fill up with condoms and other means of contraception in order to prevent the reproduction of Bandera and fascist bastards! wassat laughing

    Everything is heading towards a logical conclusion, a major military conflict in Europe. Only they cannot understand one thing now, such "analysts" and "lawmakers" - the ocean will not save them now, not from our missiles, not from IS ...

    These 60 million will quickly dissolve in the pockets of Svidomo officials and generals.
    And the Abrams all saw how they burn in Iraq. They’re not a chip already. They’re more advertisements around them. Well, they’ll send them to Europe and what’s next !? They’re afraid to send them to Ukraine. In the very first days they will get to the militia. angry

    Apparently, such "help" has a specific purpose - for someone's wallet. And it's not a fact that this wallet is in Ukraine.

    Senator Rob Portman

    How many idiots are there. Compared to the Russian parliament, it exceeds multiple.
