The weapons systems supplied to help the Ukrainian Armed Forces will soon change the situation on the fronts of the Ukrainian conflict. The head of the US military department, Lloyd Austin, spoke about it in an interview with CNN.
According to the head of the Pentagon, the United States will send more artillery mounts and other weapons to Ukraine, which will allow the Ukrainian armed forces to maneuver and hit Russian units in different directions. In addition, US military specialists are training and equipping several Ukrainian mechanized infantry brigades to aid in the fighting.
Moreover, Austin, following other officials in the United States, repeated that Washington would support Kiev as long as it sought to return “its territories”. In this, the United States is united with other members of the global community.
I think what we’re doing, the opportunities we’re providing… will allow the Ukrainians to start changing the dynamics on the battlefield.
– said the head of the Pentagon.
Earlier, Lloyd Austin said members of the Ukrainian Defense Contact Group were doing everything possible to provide the Kiev regime with everything needed to create “the necessary effect on the battlefield”. At the same time, the Pentagon expects a spring-summer offensive by the Ukrainian armed forces.
