Ukraine Adopts New Military Strategy, Plans To Renew Air Force Fleet

On March 25th, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky signed into effect the decision of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine “On the Military Security Strategy of Ukraine,” his press service reported.

The document provides for the introduction of a comprehensive approach to the defense of Ukraine in the face of a military threat to national security associated with the use of hybrid methods.

“Ukraine’s comprehensive defense corresponds to the sovereign inalienable right of every state to self-defense against aggression enshrined in the UN Charter and is not aimed at achieving military parity with the Russian Federation, which would lead to excessive militarization of the state. It provides for maintaining the balance and combination of military and non-military means to ensure the military security of Ukraine,” reads the document.

The strategy defines the goals, priorities and objectives of state policy in the military, defense and military construction.

“The document is aimed at protecting national interests from military threats, repelling and deterring armed aggression against Ukraine, preventing or restraining the enemy from full-scale use of military force against Ukraine, termination of the temporary occupation by the Russian Federation of part of the territory of Ukraine, protection of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine primarily through the implementation of international legal, political and diplomatic, security, humanitarian and economic measures.”

Notably, Crimea being part of Russia, following a referendum is referred to as a “temporary occupation by the Russian Federation of the territory of Ukraine.”

The same goes for the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics.

Those expecting peace in Eastern Ukraine are heading quickly towards disappointment.

To help in the defense against “the Great Aggressor”, the US continues its support of Ukraine.

On March 25th, a consignment with a total weight of 350 tons arrived in port of Odessa, Ukraine. The primary delivery included 35 Humvees, but also other equipment.

The government of Volodymyr Zelensky has launched the competition for one of the most strategic European defense contracts for the coming years: the renewal of its fleet of fighter jets.

Volodymyr Zelensky’s emissaries recently informed Western capitals that the head of state is preparing to store his country’s entire fleet of fighter jets, dating from the Soviet era, in the hangars. The Kiev government wants to equip itself in the west, either with light planes, in which case the F-16 is ideal, or with heavier multirole planes, which would open up competition to the Dassault Rafale and the FA- 18 from Boeing.

Reportedly, the issue is at the top of the agenda for Emmanuel Macron’s next visit to Ukraine, originally scheduled for the end of March, but which has been postponed. The French president believes in the Rafale’s chances of winning in this former bastion of Russian industry.

Paris has one advantage: its commercial system capable of supporting such a contract is already in place.

Washington, for its part, is not going to stand idly by for such a strategic contract, which would install an American hunt at the gates of Russia – a major snub for Moscow. It is the FA-18 which should be presented soon.

Hype in Europe is due to the recent claims at a meeting of the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada Committee on National Security, Defense and Intelligence on March 11th, when the Commander of the Air Forces of Ukraine presented a preliminary long-term development plan “Vision of the Air Forces 2035”, which was approved on May 15, 2020.

The plan considers replacing of the MiG-29, Su-27, Su-24M, Su-25, Su-24MR aircraft of the Ukrainian Air Force with a single multi-purpose fighter.

According to the plan, at first, Kiev intended to buy American F-15 (specified-F-15EX) and Swedish Saab Gripen jets, and then, to receive fifth-generation Lockheed Martin F-35 fighters.

In the current situation, it is extremely difficult for the Ukrainian leadership to find the funds necessary to implement its plans. Apparently, this is the reason for the information that the Ukrainian side has started contacts with France on the possible purchase of the Dassault Rafale. Rafale is a rival for McDonnell Douglas F-15EX Eagle, which was planned for purchase first. Due to the current economic situation in France, pandemic crisis and death of one of its directors, Dassault experiences significant difficulties and may become a beneficial partner for Kiev.

The new Biden administration is inclined to drastically revamp its support for Kiev – even though the president and his son’s ties to Ukraine have become a matter of US domestic policy.

The Congress is already providing substantial aid of several hundred million dollars divided into several defense and security consignment to Ukraine. In addition, Washington is assisting the Ukrainian defense complex as closely as possible: many American officials are thus stationed within the entities of the ministry, such as the defense conglomerate Ukroboronprom.

They are having fun like crazy, behind the backs of the land of the mad, they make them write the most absurd laws, they finance them and then force them to buy the old military equipment, they pretend to give them weapons systems while in reality they unload the scrap metal that they no longer use, saving on disposal costs, poor Ukraina as it ended badly and soon they will send them to die just for the amusement of the Westerners who love to kill the Slavs.

Украина должна забыть о Крыме и НАТО. Власть на Украине находится в сговоре с Еврейский олигархами, им никто не противостоит. Украинская армия убивает мирных жителей… и это факт.

“Ukraine’s comprehensive defense corresponds to the sovereign inalienable right of every state to self-defense against aggression enshrined in the UN Charter”

Obviously not “inalienable” and not “enshrined ( in the UN Charter) ” enough.
Since that “right” was not valid for Yugoslavia and Kosovo, so there is no reason to be valid now.
Precedent of right on “self determination” over the sovereignty of any country was single handedly imposed by US (Super Power at the time) to the present day.

They will probably have export versions of OLD second hand F-16 models.
Completely useless compatible only with old US air to air missiles
Those jets will most definitely be less capable than these OLD SU-27 and MiG-29 Ukraine is using today.
all in all it is great favor to Russia and huge stride back in defense capabilities.

PS
Iraq wanted so much to get rid of newly bought export versions of the F-16 that are completely useless.
They wanted to buy new SU and MiG jets with the newest Russian missiles…
But (surprise!!) They have fallen under new US sanctions that prohibits to them buying any kind of Russian weapons !

Jews Albright and Clark had NATO bomb Serbia so the IMF Jews could make loans for rebuilding and get control of Serbian iridium assets… while Saudi non-profit n.g.o.s kept the KLA terrorists well fed and well armed… Just like ISIS in Syria… their Zionist bedfellows on Wall Street want Ukraine for GMO grain crops… Monsanto, Genentec, ADM, etc., are all buying land with the help of the Jews at the IMF by giving the Ukrainian “Dill” idiots debt relief… The Ukrainian parliament is full of Jewish apparatchiks… ISIS = Khazar = Kiev junta = Zionist IMFcomment image

Flop-35 is not “multi role” jet at all (like F-16 it was suppose to replace)!
…. actually it is the only existing jet that has NO precise role. Since it is not capable to do any role successfully enough (not even as strike aircraft).

NATO knows that its ground forces are useless in a war vs Russia….they failed in Iraq ( during occupation) and in Afganistán….also Knows that it is easy to destroy airbase runways with cruise missile and loitering drones…..therefore NATO without air force support is nothing!….it means that they are using useful fools like Ukrainians and wahabi terrorists ( ISIS&Al Qaeda) as a NATO proxy army…it has no impact in the public opinion of the NATO Alliance Countries if thousands of Ukrainians soldiers or terrorists die fighting vs Russia.

IMF Jéws are in bed with the Turks, Saudis, and NATO, they were worried about a Trump audit of the Federal Reserve… and about Trump and Putin teaming up to destroy them once and for all… Trump was a vote for peace, and peace does not make money for the weapon industry.

The pseudo secular media and their zíonist masters profit from destabilization. Retaining control of US foreign policy is what drives the neo-cons and Hillary’s flying monkeys… along with the millions Goldman Sachs and the Saudis have paid them.

Clarence Spangle

The banksters need a war desperately right now. They’ve tried so hard in Syria and it just hasn’t worked. Then, they had crazy Trump actually saying the USA should get out of the Middle East and focus on their own problems, and people were listening… What’s a self-respecting globalist financier to do?

Without the US military killing people and breaking things, there is no future growth path for them. So they sent their puppets like Kasich and Romney out to talk up the fight against “evil” and threaten Russia, hoping to fool those dumb white ‘Murkins one more time into sending their sons off to die for God and Country and Goldman Sachs.

When it comes to Ukrainian investments in new equipment it all comes down to financing.
Ukraine economy is so bad that they can’t afford to buy the needed equipment.
Who will more or less give Ukraine their equipment at a very low cost or loans which probably leads to equipment that very close to end of life.
Maybe they should lease JAS-39 Gripen.

I can only hope with Flop-35s 😂

Bob

In US, the USAF recently, and quietly, stated the F-35 is a failure and they need to commission a new low-cost fighter to replace the aging F-16, as F-35 cannot achieve this task, as was originally envisaged, due to excessive flight-time and maintenance costs, combined with unacceptable, overall, fleet percentage unreliability. If a new US F-16 replacement program did come to fruition, they would have a whole load of used, and tired, F-16’s to sell. And what better sucker than the current corruption addled Ukrainian vassal state, a secondary market deal for worn out US air-frames, with everyone involved taking a cut all the way down the line.

There are still over 500,000 pensioners that haven’t had a check in 6 years now – this adds up to about 4 billion dollars { converted} , but they don’t count – you Jew Bast… But of course, there is plenty of incoming money and loans to buy more War ” supplies”.

“In the current situation, it is extremely difficult for the Ukrainian leadership to find the funds necessary to implement its plans.”
In the meantime, continue to buy cases of duck tape.

Ukrops don’t even have money to buy AN 2 and they dream of F16? Ahahahahahahaha

The best strategy for the little Russians is to unite with The great Russians.
Anything else is self destruction.
