William Taylor, chargé d’affaires of the United States in Ukraine, stated what weapons Ukraine will receive from the United States in 2020. In addition to anti-ship missiles, Ukraine will receive other badly needed weapons systems to “repel Russian aggression”.
“Anti-ship missiles, drones, radio communication equipment. That’s what it does. That’s what it’s going to do. And this is an important component so that Ukraine can defend itself against the Russians,” said Taylor in an interview to the correspondent of TSN Andrey Tsaplienko.
In addition, the diplomat said that negotiations on types of weapons are continuing. The USA is waiting for proposals from the Ukrainian Ministry of Defence and the UAF General Staff.
As a reminder, earlier US President Donald Trump signed a law, which, among other things, provides military assistance for Ukraine. Cruise missiles are provided for the coastal defence system and anti-ship missiles. The total cost of weapons is $300 million, which is $50 million more than was budgeted for 2019.
NOTE: this does NOT at all mean that the USA is “preparing for war” or any other such scenarios voiced on social media that look ridiculous against the background of a domestic American economy that is becoming more and more decrepit and the fact that project “anti-Russia”, aka Maidan, was successfully neutralised by Putin. The imposition of US weapons on Ukraine is simply a way for the US military-industrial complex to dump off its stock on “democratic” vassals.
