German edition: "If Ukraine has something in abundance, then this weapon"

55
In an interview with German radio Deutschlandfunk, Ukraine’s Ambassador to Germany, Andrei Melnik, called on Berlin to provide “defensive weapons” to Kiev, reports RIA News.



“We are asking for defensive weapons. For example, if we had artillery detection systems, this would reduce the risk of further escalation, ”said Melnik.

However, journalist Sabina Adler in her commentary on the interview emphasized: “If Ukraine has something in abundance, then this weapon". The desire of the Kiev authorities to get weapons in Germany, she called "incomprehensible."

“Why Ukraine, which has been producing weapons for decades and has become one of the largest exporters, will not manufacture these systems by itself, since they need them so much,”
wondered Adler.

In her opinion, in many matters Kiev acts contradictory. “The fight against corruption, even at the level of the presidential administration, is conducted without much enthusiasm, and Petro Poroshenko himself did not fulfill his promise to get rid of his business,” the journalist said.

“Ukraine has not done for a long time what it is able to do by itself, it needs to put more effort into it,” she concludes.

    These Germans absolutely do not understand the wide Ukropsk soul. She is ready to accept EVERYTHING, if only FOR FREE. And high-precision "defensive weapons", and even IN THE ZONE OF COMBAT ACTIONS! This is what a gesheft is planned! All this can be written off - without traces and possible consequences! And what is the price - even if you sell good thermo-optics at half price - you can drink for a year without drying out laughing

    "“If Ukraine has something in abundance, then this is a weapon"" ...

    Hmm ... But by and large - where does this excess come from?

    What is not rubbish (on the arsenals), it has long been sold out or destroyed in the boilers of Donbass ...

    Well, I forgot about their Navy, which, helping NATO, control the expanses of the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean ...
    And the Air Force, by chance, does not control the Galaxy?

    Excess weapons ... To whom to give it? They steal, sell, drink or break ...
    Pleasant with such - the most invincible army on the continent - to fight ... Ugh, forgot - Russia has not come to war until now ...

    what "junta"? There are only partners, the best choice and generally "business friends" (gas, for example)
    According to the article. The journalist does not decide anything. And actually Germany will not be able to offer anything. Of course, there is a request for armament to many countries. The list of necessary (lethal and non-lethal) is large.
    Do you still believe in the "end" of the post-Maidan reign government? I thought 2 years was enough to make sure that the line passed by the Russian Federation was seriously and permanently fixed there.

        No way. We will "score" and NATO will drive its "toys" in this territory. So what you want or not want to hand over the former Ukraine to the West "zapadlo". the Americans are up to something, changing one Governor-General (Biden) to another (Jovanovitch). And the staff just don't do anything.

    Well, Ukraine, for example, produces weapons, but only for money. And only for strangers. although the quality of course is limping on both legs, but they manage to shove their trash. today they may not produce, but upgrade or repair as much as possible (if they find where to remove the spare parts from), and to produce it, it’s necessary oh so much. First of all, metallurgical plants and institutes, for the production of alloys, then we need an economy capable of withstanding, human resources are needed, and where to get these resources when half of Ukrainians dream of leaving the hill forever? who could have long fled from there. did they want to leave the USSR so that they would be good? Well, the whole thing came out. The idiot remained. and those few who still somehow keep afloat due to apoliticality and prudence, working on two, or even three, jobs at once. I have a close friend working at an aircraft factory in Zaporozhye, after changing houses, makes custom-made furniture. and his wife, after working at home, bakes cakes to order. they live like that, and that’s not always enough.

    Well, duck you yourself want to make a "great agrarian power" out of the outskirts, so why ask yourself questions, since they destroyed and ruined the industry of the outskirts ... the Germans themselves have not enough logic lately, but everyone looks at others and looks for problems, although they themselves .....

    Because selling and producing different things, the military-industrial complex of Ukraine was once a component of the military-industrial complex of the Soviet Union, respectively, when Russia broke off the connection with the pickers and partners, if Russia was able to replace the lost Ukrainian partners, then for Ukraine it is impossible. Add to this the outdated equipment (which has not yet been handed over to metal reception) and the lack of qualified workers and engineers. Hence, such opuses in the form of "Azovtsy" and the like. "You cannot buy a tram to build this." How many equipment inherited from the Union were sold and cut into scrap metal with the blessing of overseas "friends".
