NEW – April 24, 2022
The Pentagon said that every day 10 planes with weapons for Ukraine land in Poland. And from there there is a flow of ground transport.
Don’t you think that the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reacts too calmly (or rather in no way) to these deliveries? Actually, even the Pentagon is somewhat shocked that no one is stopping them from delivering huge masses of weapons and fuel to Ukraine.
Transfer from the Czech Republic to Ukraine of 2S1 “Gvozdika” 122-mm self-propelled gun
Here is a list of what is officially confirmed by the sending party (it would be interesting to collect all this into a list by weapon class)…
Washington’s latest military aid package to Kiev includes more than 700 “Switchblade” projectiles, 90 howitzers and 16 Mi-17 helicopters.
The ministry stated that the total amount of military assistance allocated by the United States for this country from February 24 is estimated at $3.4 billion, and from January 2021 — at $4 billion.

Multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) are supplied to Ukraine by the United States and other NATO allies, Deputy Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland said in an interview with the Ukrainian edition of European Truth on Friday, April 22.
“I want to clarify that the latest package of assistance to Ukraine already includes multiple launch rocket systems, as well as artillery. We use the term shopping list, that is, a list of desired purchases provided to us by the Ukrainian military and President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky. At every stage, we try to adapt our assistance to the needs of the Ukrainian Armed Forces (UAF), “ she said.
“And we provide it. Just like MLRS systems. We already supply them. And not just us. We are working with our NATO allies to ensure that Ukraine gets more jet systems. There are also several NATO countries that supply Ukraine with spare parts for aircraft, so that the country can put more vehicles on combat duty than a week ago. This is a direct result of the help of allies,” the US Deputy Secretary of State explained.
Ukraine’s request for the supply of MLRS was one of the key ones to the allies that supply the country with weapons.
P.S. In the United States, an information scandal broke out around military assistance to Ukraine. The reason is the possible sale of weapons to “third parties” by Ukrainian officials and functionaries.
If MANPADS fall into the hands of terrorists, then the entire international aviation will be “covered”, and the number of terrorist attacks and murders will also increase. Many call it the “pandora’s box” that the West has “opened”.
