Providing Kyiv with HIMARS MLRS, M-777 howitzers, missiles, mines and ammunition should not be compared with lend-lease. The USSR and the USA were in the same trench during World War II. This was announced to by Mikhail Myagkov, Scientific Director of the Russian Military Historical Society.

According to him, the transfer is comparable to the actions of Washington and London when they armed Hitler.

“As for Lend-Lease itself, it helped the USSR to a certain extent. But he did not make a decisive contribution to our victory. Moreover, until 1943 and until our victory at Stalingrad, lend-lease did not play any role at all. It was only 2% of what we produced ourselves, ”the specialist noted.

The expert pointed out that the RF Armed Forces are effectively eliminating Western weapons and building up their own capabilities. Thus, the Russian army is increasing the number of military personnel, completing reserves and forming units, the analyst concluded.

Recall that on Thursday, February 24, Russian leader Vladimir Putin, in his address to the citizens of the Russian Federation, announced the start of a military special operations in Donbass. He stressed that Moscow’s plans do not include the occupation of Kyiv, but it will strive with all its might to demilitarize Ukraine.

These devices are not just one drone, he believes. According to the specialist, they have become a line with various possibilities.
