According to German foreign policy expert Ulrich Speck, the decision to provide military assistance “clarifies Western support for Ukraine in a possible offensive in the coming months.” He also suggests that the West is not in the way of peace talks in the near future.
According to the article, the announcement of military assistance indicates that Washington, Paris and Berlin have changed positions on the issue of sending heavier and more dangerous weapons to Ukraine. At the same time, it is noted that the armored vehicles included in the new package have become the most modern of those supplied to Kyiv.
Recall, on January 6, the United States allocated to Ukraine the largest military assistance package in history of three billion dollars. It will include infantry fighting vehicles, howitzers, armored personnel carriers, and surface-to-air missiles. It is planned to spend another $225 million on the modernization of the Ukrainian army.
