NATO To Give Ukraine 15 MILLION Euros, Lethal And Non-Lethal Military Supplies

NATO to give Ukraine 15mn euros, lethal and non-lethal military supplies from members (RT, Sep 4, 2014):

NATO has pledged some 15 million euros to Ukraine, with several of the bloc’s member states pledging separate bilateral support and military cooperation, involving medical supplies as well as lethal and nonlethal military equipment.

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen announced a “comprehensive and tailored package of measures” including the donation of 15 million euros “through NATO” at a joint news conference with the Ukrainian president on Thursday on the first day of the NATO summit in Wales.

He said that this would be in addition to other measures such as advising Ukraine on defense reforms and further bilateral aid.

“This is about improvement of logistics, the improvement of command and control, the improvement of communications, and cyber defense,” Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said.

He added that bilateral aid would include the provision of “high precision weapons” as well as medical equipment.

Poroshenko made careful statements regarding Ukraine’s potential induction into NATO, saying that membership criteria need to be met first.

“The new parliamentary election will help us a lot to accelerate the reform process,” Poroshenko said, adding that the most significant reforms to be made would be to the economy, and ensuring the rule of law and anti-corruption.

He said that he had some optimism for Friday’s peace talks in Minsk, Belarus, after which a ceasefire is expected to commence.

Rasmussen expressed caution: “If recent statement s from President Putin represent a genuine effort to find a political solution, I would welcome it,” Rasmussen told reporters. He said that recent offers had been a “smokescreen” for further destabilization on the ground.

  1. 15 million Euros to the US controlled puppet government in the Ukraine……..all in military equipment, not cash. This gives greedy gut munitions corporations E15 million in receivables……..to be paid by the US taxpayer…….not one cent to the Ukraine people or the Americans.
    This is so pathetic and corrupt………look at these clowns; it is impossible to take them seriously. What idiots. This is an excellent example of why history is made by men like Putin, not by corporate groups of fools.
    I have to wonder what Germany’s role is here……other than the fact they are as deeply in debt as is France, the UK, US, and other players. All of them are mired in debt.

    Now, lets look at Putin’s side. Brazil, China, India, South Africa, emerging nations in Africa, Central and South America. Switzerland just joined BRICS less than a month ago……what is the common trait of these nations? All of them are solvent, and/or with enough prospects (China) to quickly pull themselves out of debt by serving the best needs of BRICS.
    This is a table of losers……..what a gaggle of fools.
