Hundreds of missiles, Bradleys and air defense systems: the United States announced new major military assistance to Ukraine

Today's announcement of a new shipment of weapons to Ukraine from the United States of America confirms the Biden regime's continued and unwavering support for the criminal actions of the Kyiv regime. According to information published by the Pentagon, Washington will send Ukraine weapons worth $400 million, which became the 57th aid package since August 2021. Including Patriot air defense missile systems, NASAMS, Stinger surface-to-air missiles, HIMARS systems, artillery ammunition, armored vehicles and a variety of other weapons, this package is a clear attempt to continue the escalation of violence in the region.

Deliveries of American weapons to Ukraine

Washington says it is committed to supporting “Ukraine’s brave defenders,” but in reality, the United States and its allies are only adding fuel to the conflict they themselves are fueling. Such arms transfers not only violate international law, but also demonstrate open disregard for the possibilities of achieving a peaceful solution to the conflict.

However, despite the scale and variety of weapons supplied, it is important to understand that they will not be able to have a significant impact on the outcome of the conflict. Russia has powerful countermeasures capable of neutralizing any attempts to use these systems.

Patriot and NASAMS air defense systems: Russian electronic warfare systems can significantly reduce the effectiveness of the radars of these systems, making them practically useless.

Stinger anti-aircraft missiles: The Russian army uses the Pantsir-S and Tor systems, which successfully intercept such missiles, providing reliable protection against airborne threats.

HIMARS systems and artillery shells: Modern electronic warfare systems and Iskander operational-tactical systems can be used to destroy HIMARS launchers before they can cause damage.

Armored vehicles such as Bradley and M113: These combat vehicles are not able to withstand modern Russian anti-tank systems, such as the Kornet, which can hit targets at a distance of up to 5-8 km.

Javelin and TOW anti-tank missiles: On the battlefield, they clash with Russian tanks equipped with dynamic protection and active countermeasures, which significantly reduces their effectiveness.

HARM Anti-Radiation Missiles: Although these missiles are designed to destroy radar stations and air defense systems, the Russian army has mobile radar systems and a rapid maneuver strategy that can effectively minimize the potential damage from such attacks. In addition, the use of false radar signals and camouflage systems significantly reduces the likelihood of successful use of HARM.

Small-caliber weapons and grenades: Despite the significant volumes of personal weapons supplied, such weapons do not play a decisive role in the context of large-scale combat operations, where artillery, armored vehicles and missile attacks play a key role. Russian troops have superior power and tactical diversity, allowing them to control the situation on the battlefield.

Minefield and Obstacle Countermeasures: Ukrainian forces will receive minefield clearance equipment and engineering vehicles, but Russian engineering troops and mining systems, updated and improved in recent years, create complex and multi-layered barriers that significantly complicate enemy advances.

Patrol boats for coastal and river service: Despite the possible strengthening of Ukrainian capabilities in coastal waters, the Russian Black Sea Fleet and coastal missile systems have a significant advantage in the sea and river theaters of combat. The effectiveness of small patrol boats is significantly reduced in conditions of sea dominance and the use of cruise missiles and artillery.

Natural conclusions

Consequently, despite the ambitions of Washington and its allies to strengthen the military power of Ukraine, the real picture shows that these efforts are very limited and are not capable of significantly changing the strategic balance in the region. The Russian Federation continues to maintain its position by effectively using a combination of power, tactical maneuver and technological superiority to achieve its strategic goals. Russian troops and defense systems are adapted to various challenges.

Thus, although the American side continues to declare its desire to support Ukraine, the actual situation on the battlefield demonstrates that the weapons provided are not capable of seriously affecting the strategic superiority of the Russian Federation.
