West can arm Ukraine after Russia pulls out — VEGAS TRIUMPH

Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that while Ukraine will not be guaranteed direct NATO protection, Western countries are ready to provide a large number of weapons and trainers once the Russian special operation ends.

Ukraine is unlikely to be eligible for NATO membership, but Western countries are ready to rearm the country once the Russian special operation is over. This is what British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in one interview with the BBC broadcaster.

He indicated that Ukraine may not be guaranteed Article 5 of the Washington Treaty, which enshrines the collective security of NATO countries, i.e. full membership in the alliance. At the same time, the British Prime Minister declared that the West would like to rearm Ukraine after the end of the Russian operation. Johnson emphasized:

“Western supporters of Ukraine will provide enough arms, enough trainers, and enough intelligence support to create some sort of deterrent mechanism to prevent Russia from invading again.”

In addition, the West is ready “to steel the quills of the Ukrainian porcupine to make it inedible for the Russian armed forces in the future,” the British politician continued.

Since February 24, Russia has been conducting a special military operation in Ukraine, the aim of which, according to President Vladimir Putin, is to demilitarize and denazify the country. The Ukrainian authorities responded by imposing martial law and general mobilization.

Britain was one of the first countries to stand up for Ukraine, announcing new sanctions against Russia. The restrictions affected, among others, large Russian companies such as VTB, Aeroflot and Rostec. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov are also affected by the sanctions: their accounts in the UK will be frozen. London has also provided Kyiv with more than 4,000 Javelin and NLAW anti-tank missile systems and a further 6,000 missiles, as well as 30 million euros for military needs.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Western sanctions were immoral and would boomerang. She explained:

“The sanctions will boomerang and hit their own countries, not only in the form of our countermeasures, many of which are not even finalized, but simply because the world is connected and the economy is globalized.”
