Ukraine, NATO, weapons

Brussels (Sputnik)-Increasing the delivery of heavy weapons to Ukraine by the United States and its NATO allies could increase the risk of direct involvement in the conflict, a French think tank Stratpol weapons expert and geopolitical. Analyst Xavier Moreau believes.

In late April, the U.S. House passed legislative relaxation requirements to engage in lend-lease trade in defense equipment with Ukraine and other Eastern European countries, with more U.S. weapons in Russia’s special military operations. It paved the way for the influx into this area. The Senate unanimously passed the bill earlier that month.

“Obviously, when the West armed Ukraine with sophisticated offensive weapons and trained Ukrainian operators in Britain, France, Germany and Poland, we were dangerously close to NATO’s direct involvement in the conflict. “Morrow said, adding that Ukraine is poor. A country that has a lot of debt thanks to the loan agreement with NATO.

Experts have said that the West has moved from a so-called defensive weapon supply to one that is clearly designed for attack, and even Germany, Europe’s most pacifist country, is now a Gepard air defense tank and a PzH2000 self-propelled grenade. He said he was offering a gun.

“France has delivered a new 155mm Caesar gun, and the United States is shipping a 60-ton M777 howitzer. These US weapons are very expensive and the ammunition is also very expensive. Long-range 70 km [44 miles] The M777’s shell firing costs US $ 100,000 per shot. In addition, these shots need to be guided by the drone, and the Ukrainian army is losing the drone that is falling like a fly, “Morrow continued.

NATO vehicles coming to Ukraine with weapons are considered legitimate targets-Shoigu

Experts For a weapon system to be truly effective, it must be manipulated by NATO soldiers, which means it spirals towards a nuclear war. He emphasized that Russia has already repeatedly warned NATO about the dangers of escalation and joint participation, warning that “we are in a danger zone.”

“There is a big difference between the United States and Britain, who want to destroy Russia’s economy and power, and Europeans who are not interested in such extreme goals. Europe will eventually need to be rebuilt Escalating conflicts Instead of continuing, we have a connection with Russia’s neighbors. “

According to experts, prolonging hostilities in Ukraine does not make sense as it will dramatically impoverish Ukraine in the future. Experts believe that the West underestimates the weight of Russia’s economy in the world and suffers far more than Russia from the sanctions that Europe imposes on Moscow.

“It’s as if the United States and NATO want to fight to the last drop of Ukrainian blood, but heavy weapons sent by NATO members do not help end military operations. It is eastern and southern. It only reaches the operational theater very partially. It can only prolong the suffering with Ukraine. “
