“It depends on which weapons will be delivered (to Kyiv by the Western allies),” Shoigu said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, in his message to the Federal Assembly, said that the more far-reaching means the West gives Kiev, the more Russia will be forced to move the threat away from its borders.
The United States previously announced a new $2 billion military aid package for Ukraine, but this time kyiv will receive equipment and ammunition only after it has been manufactured.
The list includes CyberLux K8, Altius-600, Jump 20 drones, as well as Switchblade 600 loitering munitions. The Ukrainian Armed Forces will also receive an unidentified amount of HIMARS installation missiles and 155mm artillery shells. In addition, the new package includes electronic warfare equipment and secure communications.
In all, at this point, Washington has spent more than $32 billion to help Ukraine.
