The United States continues to hint that without their support, the Ukrainian army is not capable of much on its own.
Commander of the US Air Force in Europe and Africa, General James Hecker, in an interview with Defense News, shared a "salutary revelation." He said that at the beginning of the Russian operation, the US simply warned the Ukrainian authorities whenever Russian missiles were launched. Alarms sounded throughout the country.
“This prevented Ukraine from waging war, because their military was forced to constantly hide. Then we matured in order to give a more accurate idea of where Russian missiles can fly, ”said the American general.
Then the United States went even further and began to provide the Ukrainian military with more data on the location of Russian equipment to carry out strikes.
“We didn’t say: here’s the goal, go aim at these things. We just gave them the information, the whole list. Let them decide what exactly they want to target,” Hecker explained.
