The Pentagon has denied the media message about the military "junk" delivered to Ukraine


Recently, the Washington Post published an article, the author of which claims that most of the equipment and equipment supplied to Kiev (worth more than $ 260 million) is the usual "rubbish" that can no longer be used in the American army.

“The United States permanently provides its foreign partners around the world with both new military equipment and equipment from existing stocks. The transfer of equipment from warehouses allows the United States to respond to urgent requirements as quickly as possible, ”said Baldansa.

According to her, "The Pentagon provides Ukraine with the very best of the available equipment, taking into account the available resources and the urgency of the necessary supplies."

“The absolute majority of the equipment that we sent to Ukraine has never been used before. However, due to the urgency of the situation, we donated unarmored cars from existing warehouses, as they were available faster than equipment from other sources. According to the requirements of US law, all these machines were in working condition at the time of delivery to Ukraine, ”Baldansa continued.

“Unarmored vehicles are one of the areas of American assistance to Ukraine, which also includes armored vehicles and other non-lethal weapons,” said a spokeswoman for the military. “We handed over assistance to increase the defense capability of the Ukrainian forces in excess of 265 million dollars.”

Baldance also stressed that "the Pentagon will continue to closely monitor the situation and maintain constant contact with partners in Ukraine to determine the next steps in military cooperation."

        The United States is constantly providing its foreign partners around the world with both new military equipment and equipment from existing stocks.
        That's right, one new body armor and a bunch of old iron laughing
        The vast majority of the technology that we sent to Ukraine has never been used before.
        And for this I also have no doubt, the equipment just rusted in the garages laughing But actually they got out beautifully, a rarity laughing

        Well, I don’t know :: pay attention to the removed wheel - it met with something similar only in the middle of the 80s in Siberia :: it is very similar to the fact that a new tread was welded onto the old used tire (but it was done carelessly) , or kakly drove a month on a flat tire - there is no other explanation for such a defect.

        We also wrote off the equipment from storage in the 90s. A new one, on the speedometers less than a thousand, but for some reason decayed. All the rubber crumbled, did not hold any gaskets and had to be sorted out completely, in short, to do capital work. By the way, imported equipment after this period storage was in the same condition.

    US supplies to Ukraine as military aid basically new equipment

    According to American concepts, Ukraine, being in a bad position, is simply obliged to consider it new.

Perhaps there is a commercial interest in the supply of trash. But I’m sure the United States will not be able to resist the temptation to give normal weapons to make us hurt.

      “Poland has already spent over 16 million dollars on repairs of new American F-130 fighter jets. As reported from Warsaw, from 37 winged carssourced from the USA half already had various flaws and imperfections that could threaten the lives of pilots. Among the 11 first F-16 delivered to the Polish Army, not a single aircraft was fully operational. Among the most frequent cases of "understaffing" of new American fighters is the absence of a friend-or-foe recognition system and spatial orientation antennas, as well as marked flaws in the pilot oxygen supply systemm. Polish military aircraft mechanics consider the F-16 capricious and expensive to operate aircraft. In total, Poland purchased 48 F-16 aircraft in the United States. "

And if someone changes tires there, they can’t even fill in the oil, so I'm sorry ... And according to the price tag, I think transportation costs more there than the cost of equipment, but cheaper than utilization ..
