The West Keeps Supporting NATO's Proxy War

 

Ukrainian troops start training on operating Abrams tanks in Germany

In recent months, the West has been boosting military support for Kiev through the provisions of more advanced and lethal weapons systems.

The New York Times reported on Saturday, citing a defense source, that about 400 Ukrainian troops in Germany began training on how to maneuver US-made M1 Abrams tanks.

On Friday, about 200 Ukrainian troops began instruction for combined arms at training locations in Grafenwoehr and Hohenfels.

Another 200 reportedly began instruction on tank refueling and maintenance, a defense source told the newspapers. 

In recent months, Western countries have been boosting military support for Kiev through the provisions of more advanced and lethal weapons systems. 

For instance, the UK supplied Kiev with depleted uranium ammo, weapons known to result in increased cancer rates and birth defects in targeted areas. 

Last week, the White House greenlighted the decision for itself and its Western partners to supply Kiev with US-made F16 jets, but that decision has been met with some reluctance in part of Germany and Portugal.

The two countries said they would not supply the aircraft to Kiev, but they would assist Ukrainian troops through other means.

Earlier in the day, Ukraine requested that Germany provide it with Taurus air-to-surface missiles, the German Defense Ministry reported.
