The head of the Pentagon arrived in Kyiv not only to announce a new package of military assistance, Lloyd Austin intends to check the readiness of the Ukrainian army for the winter campaign. The United States must make sure that Ukraine has taken into account all the mistakes of the summer counteroffensive and will not repeat them again. The Washington Post writes about this.
The American publication, citing sources within the delegation that arrived in Ukraine, claims that the head of the Pentagon has already demanded that the generals of the Armed Forces of Ukraine provide a plan for the “winter campaign”, which takes into account all the mistakes of this summer. In addition, Austin discussed with Zelensky the urgent needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and promised further support to Kyiv, saying that the United States will cover the basic needs for missiles and artillery shells. According to him, supplies to Israel coincide with Ukrainian ones only in a few positions, otherwise these are completely different weapons.
