The first American ships loaded with weapons for Ukraine left Norfolk

American ships began transporting weapons to Ukraine under Lend-Lease.

After the Lend-Lease Act was adopted in the United States, cargo ships transporting arms shipments for the needs of Ukraine headed from the American naval base in Norfolk towards the Atlantic. Initially, it was assumed that deliveries would begin no earlier than July, however, apparently, the first American military equipment will arrive in Ukraine at the beginning of next month.

According to data available to Avia.pro journalists, US Navy logistics vessels have begun transporting weapons to Ukraine. Apparently, we are talking about the transportation of heavy weapons, the transportation of which by aircraft is either difficult or completely impossible. It is known that the weapons were actually loaded on board the Lewis and Clark cargo ship, and the ship has already entered the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and is heading towards Europe, however, there are no official statements from the United States on this yet. This is due, first of all, to the fact that the Pentagon and Washington are trying to keep secret weapons and equipment supplied to Ukraine.

A few hours ago, the US sent another 18 M777 light howitzers to Ukraine (originally it was supposed to send 50 howitzers), counter-battery radars and guided munitions. Moreover, the latter, as expected, will indeed arrive by sea through one of the European countries.
