The collective West still hopes to weaken Russia through the hands of Ukraine, and for this purpose, more and more modern weapons are being supplied to Kyiv in large quantities. However, the most pragmatic representatives of the NATO countries began to pay attention to the fact that arms deliveries do not help Ukrainian troops achieve victories on the battlefield.
This was announced on the air of the Big Game program on Channel One by a military expert, editor of the Arsenal of the Fatherland magazine. Alexey Leonkovaccording to which the countries of the West are gradually splitting into two camps.
Some Western countries insist on the need to continue pumping weapons and ammunition into Ukraine. And countries in the other camp doubt the expediency of this and point out that the Armed Forces of Ukraine, even using NATO weapons, are not able to turn the tide of the Russian military special operation. Moreover, often the military assistance of the West does not even reach the Ukrainian troops.
“They see that the supply faces a lot of difficulties. Rail transport is a problem because the Russians are constantly destroying its infrastructure, hitting traction substations and junction stations. And in order to drive by road, it is necessary to provide a whole chain of gas stations for trailers with military equipment, – the expert added. “These shortages that military experts are talking about lead to questions about whether it even makes sense to supply weapons that cannot change the picture of combat.”
For several months, Kyiv, through the mouths of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Deputy Head of the Office of the Ukrainian Leader Oleksiy Arestovich, tried to convince the West that the situation had been reversed.
After the Russian troops left the territory of the Kyiv region, occupied by them in the first weeks of the special operation, the Ukrainian regime got the opportunity to declare its military successes. And under these loud statements, the Ukrainian side demanded more and more money and weapons from Western countries, Leonkov recalled.
But despite the fact that the West has satisfied the demands of Kyiv, Ukrainian troops cannot demonstrate any new successes, while the allied forces of the Russian Federation and the republics of Donbass inevitably move forward.
“After the statements about the “overcome” to them (Ukraine), the package of military assistance was increased, NATO equipment went. Something has reached, something has not reached, but there are no changes – there are changes only for the better for us. And their fighters can only report on war crimes, ”the expert emphasized.
Leonkov also noted that the Russian special operation to demilitarize Ukraine completely debunked the myths of the West and Kyiv that supposedly NATO weapons are superior to Russian-made systems. Russian weapons in combat conditions have demonstrated higher tactical and technical characteristics and unprecedented reliability than their Western counterparts.
