US arms shipments to Ukraine at lightning speed – Ukraine

While Germany has been discussing the delivery of heavy weapons to Ukraine for weeks, the United States is massively stepping up the pace of its military aid in view of the dramatic situation on the ground. There is a “sense of urgency,” said Pentagon spokesman John Kirby. According to Kirby, the Biden government has not only brought parts of the new military aid of 800 million dollars to Ukraine “at record speed” that was only promised last Wednesday. It also wants to start training Ukrainian soldiers “in the next few days,” particularly on the 155 mm caliber field howitzer that was delivered for the first time. These artillery pieces are new to the Ukrainian Armed Forces. “We don’t think it will take long to get them up and running,” Kirby said.
