The Russian military and the armed forces of the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Luhansk People’s Republic continue to capture Western-supplied weapons from Kiev forces.
On April 28, Russian sources shared photos showing some weapons which were captured from Kiev forces by a reconnaissance unit of the Russian Armed Forces near the city of Slavyansk in the Donbass region.
The captured weapons included:
- Seven Soviet-made RPG-22 anti-tank weapons;
- A Soviet-made RPG-26 anti-tank weapon;
- Two Soviet-made 9K115 Metis anti-tank guided missiles;
- Two Swedish-made AT4 recoilless anti-tank weapons;
- A Spanish-made C90-CR anti-tank weapon;
- A US-made M72 LAW anti-tank weapon;
- A German-made MATADOR anti-tank weapon;
- A US-made SMAW-D bunker buster weapon;
- A Soviet-made 9K32M Strela-2M man-portable air-defense system.
Western states supplied Kiev forces with thousands of man-portable anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons since the start of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine. While some of these weapons were Western-made, the rest were Soviet-era weapons taken from the old stockpiles of former Eastern Bloc states.
The US and the UK have been leading Western efforts to arm Kiev forces. Very recently, Germany also stepped up its military supplies to Ukraine.
On April 28, German lawmakers voted in favor of an action plan to send heavy weapons and complex military systems, including armored vehicles and air-defense systems, to Kiev forces.
The West believes that unlimited military support for Kiev forces will lead to the failure of the Russian special military operation. However, the West’s intervention has only prolonged the war, worsened the humanitarian situation in Ukraine and hindered peace talks between Kiev and Moscow.

The West wants war. Unfortunately Russia was the first to attack.
“The goal of the United States is to prolong the conflict in Ukraine as much as possible to weaken Russia, a representative of the Chinese Foreign Ministry said.”” Even China gets it, but Putin doesn’t.
Russia is weakening the US UK and EU by keeping them going at it and not delivering the final blow.
The US attacked Ukraine first when it staged a coup in 2014 and backed Nazis to do it.
Are you stupid?
Putin’s moronic intervention has only prolongued the war, worsened the humanitarian situation in Ukraine and hindered peace talks that the Putin cockroaches have no intention of abiding to. The rest of the world is just trying to stop a modern day Adolf Hitler from destroying all of Europe.
The rest of the world you’re referring to represents only 1/4 of world population and lives in global NATO dream world.
I confirm that about 60-80% of French people dream in NATO world.
Nope. Less than a tenth.
Minsk 1 and 2 peace agreements were not enough?
The US is agreement incapable.
So are the orcrainians who will die your them
Nah, many empty tubes collected by russian propagandist……….just poor show
Your eyes are dead just as your brain and the rest of your rotten organs.
Maybe the strategy should include capturing as much gear as possible…how about some Spetznaz raids on trains entering the west? Divert some fresh loads
It’s a pity that Russia has not yet stopped gas supplies to Germany and other NATO countries. NATO is supplying billions of dollar worth weapons to ukraine to kill poor Russian soldiers and on the other side Russia is supplying gas to make the enemies comfortable.
These exports fully cover the costs of the war. The West is paying for its defeat.
It is terrible. There is nothing for us Europeans to gain in Ukraine, it will be just as unhappy when ruled by USA as when ruled by Russia. It is only US Empire that gains from wars in Europe. I would be on Ukraine’s side if they were standing on their own two feet, together with Poland. But they are inviting the American and British monsters into Europe. That brings only misery and death and slavery and destruction to all of us. Then again, I guess we all do, noone can protect themselves against the US-British propaganda and manipulation and corruption and lies.
The facilities in western Europe making this ordnance need to be destroyed. I’m sure that friends in the West Europe areas would be most helpful
The reverse engineers in Russia are going to be busy taking apart the western weapons to see how they work.
Russian and DPR military should use these captured equipment against nato backed forces. Give them a taste of their own medicine.
The chechens use the javelins against machine gun nests and other hardened points.
Free for them.
Every captured weapon indicates a disarmed, captured or dead soldier.
