The journalist Skachko admitted that the West is slowing down the supply of weapons to Ukraine due to its shortage. There are several possible reasons why the West is slowing down the supply of weapons as part of military assistance to Ukraine.
The relevant theses were listed by Ukrainian journalist and political expert Volodymyr Skachko in an article for “Ukraine.ru”.
One of the most real reasons is that the countries of Europe and the United States themselves do not have enough weapons and equipment, and it is not yet possible to produce it in sufficient quantities in the current conditions, the specialist admitted.
Secondly, the expert believes that Western states are gradually becoming “disillusioned” with Kiev’s ability to resolve the conflict militarily. “SVO has shown how amazing the courage of the APU [The Armed Forces of Ukraine], and the tactical advantage of Russian military science,” the author of the material said.
The collapse of hopes.How did the pandemic and sanctions against Russia deal a crushing blow to the global economy?On June 21, 2022, moreover, Skachko admits some concern of the West that Russian specialists can find out the “most secret secrets” of weapons thanks to captured copies of equipment.
Finally, it is possible that deliveries are delayed due to concerns of Washington and Brussels about the spread of the conflict outside Ukraine.
On August 26, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that Germany would not supply Ukraine with weapons for strikes on Russian territory. He explained that this position is connected with the unwillingness to allow the escalation of the conflict.
At the same time, a day earlier, German Foreign Minister Annalena Berbock admitted that the German Armed Forces have an “absolute shortage of their own reserves” and arms supplies to Ukraine “are on a fine line.”
