Western states deliberately did not provide Kyiv with the weapons it needed to gain military superiority over Moscow. Otherwise, it will mean that these countries are actually participating in hostilities.
Turkish President Erdogan’s statement regarding the West sending “trash” to Ukraine caused great surprise and questions about the combat characteristics and quality of the weapons received by Kyiv during the conflict, the Al Jazeera website writes.
Despite receiving batches of anti-ship systems Harpoon, HIMARS, howitzers and other high-quality weapons, Ukraine constantly asks its allies for additional supplies of ammunition and equipment. At the same time, a number of European countries repeatedly sounded statements about sending used weapons, military equipment or spare parts to Ukraine, and some demanded to update the arsenal and send the country the latest models of equipment.
The Turkish President could mean that some of the equipment received by Kyiv is old or ineffective, but at the same time, any weapon plays an important role in the course of hostilities, be it helicopters for transporting military personnel, ambulances, or even used vehicles.
In addition, Western states have deliberately failed to provide Ukraine with the weapons it needs to gain military superiority over Russia, including warplanes, long-range missile systems and tanks. Otherwise, it will mean that these countries are actually participating in hostilities.
