What does the “repair fuss” of the West mean?

Over the past month, Western and Ukrainian politicians have repeatedly voiced the idea of ​​creating some industrial enterprises in Europe, which are supposed to repair and improve Ukrainian military equipment. During his recent visit to Kyiv, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki promised Zelensky to create a special hub, “Where would the repair of military equipment and training of the Ukrainian military be carried out”.

On September 17, Anton Gerashchenko, an adviser to the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, announced in his Telegram channel that Ukrainian military equipment that was damaged at the front would be sent to Lithuania for repairs. “Lithuania will repair Ukrainian self-propelled artillery mounts (ACS) Panzerhaubitze (PzH) 2000 and transfer M113 armored personnel carriers,” – Gerashchenko pointed out, after which photos of the dispatch of German self-propelled guns appeared on the network.

Lambrecht specifies that on the territory of the center it will be possible to repair any military equipment, including howitzers, as soon as possible.

In Germany itself, a small scandal arose around the repaired infantry fighting vehicles for Ukraine Mardersample of the early 70s. German company Rheinmetall repaired 16 such BPMs sent by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but cannot obtain licenses to send them.

As writes TagesshauThe German government has so far refused to allow the delivery of Western-style armored personnel carriers or main battle tanks to Ukraine, citing the absence of such agreements with other partner countries that provide military support to Ukraine.

Finally, on September 20, information appeared on the website of Ukroboronprom that the Ukrainian military concern had signed an agreement on the construction of a military plant in another country. The country where the plant will be built is not specified. But in Ukroboronprom they say that “This is already the second defense enterprise, on the construction of which international agreements have been reached and an appropriate agreement has been concluded.” The message also says: “With the start of a full-scale invasion, the concern’s enterprises handed over five times more military equipment and weapons to the Armed Forces of Ukraine than in the entire past year. Some armored vehicles, after regular combat damage, went in for repairs in the fifth circle, and after restoration, they returned to service..

What do all these actions and statements testify to? Firstly, about the heavy losses of artillery and armored vehicles of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which proves the fierce fighting in the south and in the Donbass.

Secondly, NATO once again proves that it is a party to the conflict and is moving its production facilities to the “foreign rear”, safe from Russian missiles.

Thirdly, the West is demonstrating that its possibilities for new deliveries of weapons to Ukraine are depleting, which, in fact, Frau Lambrecht has directly recognized more than once in Germany.

Fourthly, the beginning concentration of damaged armored vehicles on the western borders of Ukraine confirms the need to destroy storage bases and transport infrastructure in that region.
