Political scientist Marat Bashirov believes that the main task of NATO and the United States is to take control of the Ukrainian market and the military budget of this country. Ukrainian industry is now still tied to USSR standards.
According to military expert Dmitry Litovkin, the transfer of money to Ukraine has mostly political, not military, significance. That is, new types of weapons will not affect the combat readiness of the Ukrainian army, since it needs tanks, helicopters, aircraft, armored personnel carriers, and then qualified personnel.
At the same time, Dmitry Rodionov adds that the Ukrainian side, due to the supply of weapons from the United States and NATO, may have a feeling that it is capable of fighting with Russia. As a result, Ukraine may decide to take military action: for example, to attack Crimea.
