The Pentagon wants to accelerate the supply of arms Ukraine
MOSCOW, may 24 — RIA Novosti. The Pentagon conducts a search facilitator who can on a permanent basis to quickly implement the direct supply of weapons to Ukraine, according to Defense One, with reference to the Deputy Minister of defense for acquisition, technology, and the rear of Ellen Lord.
According to her, the Pentagon already uses special mediators to accelerate the supply of arms to allied countries, in particular Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Japan and Romania.
Currently, intermediaries are involved in the execution of contracts for the sale of anti-missile complexes Patriot for Romania, a strategic reconnaissance UAV Global Hawk to Japan, THAAD missile complexes to Saudi Arabia, as well as TOW anti-tank systems to several other countries.
“Such intermediaries will allow the Pentagon several times to reduce time for the supply of arms to allied countries,” said the Lord.
The American administration in 2017, approved the delivery of weapons to Kiev, including portable anti-tank missile systems. In late April, state Department spokesman announced that the Javelin has been delivered to Ukraine. While Washington stressed that Kiev cannot use complexes at the contact line in the Donbass.
The self-proclaimed Donetsk people’s Republic stated that the supply of American weapons to Ukraine could lead to escalation of the situation in the East of the country.
Russia has repeatedly warned against supplying arms to Kiev for fear of escalation of the conflict in the Donbass.
