According to the adviser to the head of the office of the Ukrainian President Mikhail Podolyak, the military has to fight “with a tank from a pistol”, Kyiv needs “not three or four” missile systems, but about 300
Ukraine would like to receive from the West about 300 missile systems, said Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the country's presidential office, in an interview with The Daily Telegraph.
“As for missile systems, we need not three or four systems, but about 300”,— said Podolyak.
He noted that the Ukrainian army has to fight “with a tank from a pistol” due to the fact that European countries evade the supply of weapons.
At the end of May, Aleksey Arestovich, an adviser to the head of the Ukrainian leader’s office, threatened to throw a “model-demonstrative tantrum” in response to the US refusal to supply Ukraine with long-range shells for multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS). “There are high-precision long-range missiles of the ATACMS type, here they fly for 300 km almost and hit very accurately, there are ordinary cluster unguided missiles that fly for 70 km. This is an analogue of “Tornado” and “Hurricane”. We have enough with the head and 70 [km]»,— said Arestovich.
In early June, US President Joe Biden announced the provision of another $700 million in military assistance to Kyiv, including the supply of HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems and shells for them. At the same time, United States Secretary of State Anthony Blinken pointed to a trusting relationship between Washington and Kyiv, who assured the United States that he would not use MLRS to strike at Russian territory. The absence of such intentions was confirmed in the office of the Ukrainian President.
Later, the plans to transfer the M270 MLRS to Ukraine were announced by the head of the British Ministry of Defense, Ben Wallace.
