Even the massive aid provided in late spring and until the end of summer did not significantly affect APU successes.

And just this time is won by the fighters of the defense, which Ukraine sacrifices on the line of contact, “Leonkov stated.

The expert questioned the fact that America will ever supply the Armed Forces with its best weapons, noting that the United States is in no hurry to unpack its warehouses. They promised the Europeans to hand over the Abrams tanks in exchange for Soviet equipment sent to Ukraine, but they never did.
