We are asking the whole world to unite and help us fight this cruel aggression. #ArmUkraineNow so that we can defeat this evil together.
President of Ukraine
Providing even a relatively modest portion of the full spectrum of vastly superior arms available to the West will result in a crushing defeat of the Russian invasion.
Ukraine has already demonstrated that it is using western weapons both responsibly and incredibly efficiently (as stated by many western military officials). Ukraine maintains strict control of all supplied weapons and uses them exclusively as requested by our Western allies to avoid escalation.
The list above is a manifestation of the trust between Ukraine and its western allies.
Western anti-tank missiles, MANPADS, IFVs, self-propelled artillery, anti-air systems — accomplish more than solely protecting freedom and democracy in Ukraine.
Supplying Ukraine with a full spectrum of western weapons will accomplish several strategic goals:
The war in Ukraine will set a precedent that will either deter those seeking to redraw borders by force for generations to come, or open a floodgate of violence that will shatter the architecture of world security.
HIMARS (High Mobility Artillery Rocket System) have proven to be a game-changer for Ukraine. However, the range of the ammunition of Ukraine’s HIMARS is currently limited at 70km. This means that Ukraine is not able to strike critical enemy infrastructure deep behind enemy lines (such as arifields, weapons and ammo storage sites, fuel depots, railway transportation hubs). Having the ability to strike targets further than 70km would cause irreparable damage to Russian logistics.
Russia, on the other hand, possesses missile systems that far outrange 70km, and has been using them regularly, both against military and civilian targets.
Ukraine’s recent counter-offensive has convincingly answered why main battle tanks are essential. It is an armored fist necessary for advancing through open terrain and for offensive (rather than purely defensive) operations.
Why does the Ukrainian army need specifically the M1 Abrams? Because it is one of the best MBTs in the world and is mass-produced in quantities sufficient for driving the russians out of Ukraine.
This is the end game, the final “piece in the set”.
Jets will allow the Ukrainian army to conduct massive well-coordinated attacks (artillery + jets + tanks) that would allow us to cripple even the best fortified russian defenses and overrun them.
Also, jets can be used to intercept russian cruise missiles, saving civilians and civilian infrastructure that Russia loves to target.
What the Ukrainians need desperately are long-range fires, rockets, artillery, drones that can disrupt or destroy the systems that are causing so much damage in Ukrainian cities, and which will also play a critical role in this next phase, if and when it begins…” Hodges said
We are a group of Ukrainian patriots (volunteers, entrepreneurs, and military experts).
We would like to convey the actual situation of what is happening on the ground in Ukraine.
So that the US public knows exactly what challenges Ukrainian troops face and what they need to succeed against the Russian invaders.
