The Pentagon did not rule out possible deliveries of lethal weapons to Kiev


“The Ministry of Defense remains in close contact with our Ukrainian colleagues in order to determine our next steps in the defense sphere,” added Baldanza.

She also recalled that "the US Congress allocated additional funding to Ukraine for military assistance under the 2016 fiscal year."

Recently, the Ukrainian ambassador to the United States, Valeriy Chaly, said that Kiev expects to receive first aid from Washington "in the coming months."

The US ambassador to Kiev, Payette, on the contrary, reported that the United States is not yet planning to supply lethal weaponsbecause "Ukraine has all the capabilities to produce it independently."

      How so? Recently, the article was about Gryzlov’s victorious trip to Kiev, and what should be done to reform the federalization and transfer of Donbass to Kiev? 70 percent approved. Will we help with gas?
      In order to reduce the influence of Russia in the Donbas, do not give a final break away to the territories, which are tied to the economy of Ukraine (very, very tightly), Poroshenko may even go to the restoration of the territories of Lugansk and Donetsk regions in the former borders.

      But you will have to pay for this in that these territories will remain part of Ukraine.
      At the moment, 105 "patriots" for the transfer. And 47 "liberals" are against.
      In my opinion, the transformation of Russia's population into ducks begins
      and seals

        The Americans are doing everything to unleash a war on the outskirts and draw Russia into it. Russia does not want this and will do everything to avoid war. It will be necessary to give the Donbass - they will give it on federalization conditions. An agreement with some circles in the USA probably already exists. It is no accident that Biden in Kiev declared the need for federalization of the Outskirts.

          You may have seen enough on TV3 psychics, or are you interested in ghost searching on the same channel?
          Where is the victory for Russia here? Maybe just do nothing? Why should we take everything back? Or did they put an awl in our ass?

          I don’t know how our sovereigns think, but due to the fact that due to their actions (the situation forced me), many serious people lost money (as an example, the low price of oil). Anyway, for all the losses, someone will have to pay, Ours must understand that they will make them extreme, and the fate of Saddam or Gaddafi is a vivid example. No one will not stand on ceremony, with those who will give slack. I think the Supreme should feel this sword of Damocles and the fact that their partners will not joke when it comes to money. And to make Daesh extreme in all troubles does not work, you need to show courage and determination yourself in the face of the whole world.

      Actually, Ukrainians cannot be trusted more complicated and more expensive than "bulletproof vest with a flashlight". Well, like a glass dick for a fool. Therefore, a serious lethal weapon, if supplied, then with trained crews / crews from various foreign PMCs. So it is more reliable.

    did not rule out the possibility of providing the Ukrainian army with lethal weapons in the current financial year

    You might think that they haven’t delivered it before. Now they just decided to legalize and make the last bet on the Ukrainian regime. What kind of Minsky is 1-2 ... Everything is only according to the plan of the United States.

    Yesterday, one official from Washington said that the first thing to do is to take control of the entire border of Ukraine and install 8 reconnaissance and surveillance towers there (a serious thing, by the way). How are they going to take control of the entire border --- considering the DPR and LPR, the American did not indicate. In addition, he said that they will curtail the training of the Ukrainian army, because Ukrainians have gained combat experience and can now teach themselves perfectly. The only thing that will help is the organization of modern intelligence and communications (with the supply of appropriate equipment).

        The United States and Cuba have been actively normalizing their relations lately. American business wants to enter the island with their big money. Will Cuban revolutionaries agree to slow down this process and host our military? During the Soviet era, we gave the Cubans an ideology and went on an economic, educational, military-technical support and much more. But our leaders betrayed the Lenin’s cause, announced to the whole world that we now no longer exchange capitalism and sugar for tanks. So who are we now for the Cubans? Old good friends, strategic allies?

    They cannot agree among themselves there. One says: "they will supply," the other says: "they will not," the third - "we have allocated money, but we are not planning to supply weapons" ... Some kind of abracadabra.

    what and how much she can supply Ukraine, she will not give them tanks, because there are not so many planes on them - this is expensive, even for America. What are they afraid of if the army does not have a darling for war. Another koltel and all this weapons will go to the DNI army and, accordingly, in our hands. What can a handful of thieving generals do in a compartment with the president who sells everything, all this rubbish that the Americans will deliver and sell to Syria.

    That’s where the war actually begins, and not in any Baltic.

    Balts themselves they will not fight; they are not fools.

    But Ukrainians frostbitten, despite the lack of the notorious fifth article, can and will, give them only free rein.

    possible supplies of lethal weapons to Kiev

    it has been delivered to Kiev by Americans a long time ago. It’s not delivered just what you can immediately see and what you need to train for months (American tanks, planes, helicopters, etc.).
    If they put tanks, planes, helicopters, then the training of dill patriots in American training centers is already complete.

    As for the delirium about the transfer of Donbass to Kiev, it is unrealistic to push the Donbass anywhere without the will of its residents.
    Gryzlov, however, flew to Kiev to warn the Ukrainians from a crazy move, namely, the impending offensive on the Donbass.
    But in Kiev, Russia's warning was ignored.
