FT: The number of ballistic missiles produced in the United States will not help kyiv – Rossiyskaya Gazeta

Date: April 12, 2024 Time: 21:26:44

In both kyiv and Washington there are calls to send heavy weapons to Ukraine due to the “slow counteroffensive”.

However, US officials note that the United States does not produce such a volume of missiles that they will “make a significant difference on the battlefield,” the publication reports. The officials also noted that the United States is unlikely to be able to send as many lethal weapons to Ukraine next year as it is now.

Earlier, White House National Security Council strategic communications coordinator John Kirby said the US had not yet made any decision to send long-range ATACMS missiles to Kiev, although the possibility of such deliveries was not ruled out.

On Sunday, the Washington Post reported that Ukraine was running out of counter-offensive options. The fact that Ukraine has not shown success on the battlefield raises fears that the conflict is reaching a stalemate and that international support may wane.

Recall that the losses of Ukrainian troops, according to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, since the beginning of the counteroffensive in June-July exceeded 43 thousand people. According to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, Ukraine has almost completely exhausted its military resources.

Former US intelligence officer Scott Ritter expressed the opinion that the conflict in Ukraine has already entered the final stage, and by the end of summer – early autumn Ukraine will lose its combat effectiveness.

Meanwhile, kyiv refuses to acknowledge the failure of the offensive.
