The United States is dissatisfied with the shipment of too many weapons to Kyiv.
The US Department of Defense is under pressure from Congress, which is seeking permission to supply more weapons to Ukraine. It is reported by Foreign Policy, citing sources.
Sources of the publication say that the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, is dissatisfied with the shipment of too many weapons to Kyiv.
It is noted that a strictly regulated amount of ammunition should be stored in the warehouses of the US Army. However, in the context of the conflict in Ukraine and constant military assistance to the country, Washington does not have time to replenish its own stocks of weapons.
Also, the Pentagon is alarmed by the too rapid consumption of supplies by the Ukrainian side and predicts problems with supplying Kyiv.
“It will become even more difficult for us to provide for them if they think that we have a full box of ammunition. This is not true at all,” said Jim Townsend, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia and NATO.
