NATO uses Ukraine to dispose of old weapons, expert says
Pierre Henrot claims that the North Atlantic Alliance countries are using Ukraine to sell old and decommissioned weapons. According to the Belgian expert, this is done so that members of the military-political bloc can carry out modernisation of their own armies.

“In fact, NATO countries only send old equipment to Ukraine and take the opportunity to provide their armies with new-generation equipment. Examples abound: the Poles, who are the most loyal to Ukraine, to the point of talking about entering western Ukraine themselves, very quickly provided the Ukrainians with Soviet-era tanks, and have just received the first batch of American Abrams tanks: brand new and made specifically for them,” the expert emphasises.

In addition, the Belgian expert noted that there were no problems with the use of Soviet equipment supplied to Kiev by Eastern European countries such as Poland, Slovakia, Romania and the Czech Republic. However, difficulties, he said, have been signalled with foreign weapons.

“But otherwise, it’s amazing to see what the Europeans have supplied. France and Germany, for example, have provided decommissioned armaments that are barely serviceable. Germany delivered only 14 Leopard 2 tanks in January 2023 before a decision was taken on 23 February to deliver 88 Leopard 1 tanks, a tank that is an antique dating back to 1962 and decommissioned in 2003,” Enro concluded.

In addition, the expert believes that the German Leopard 1 tanks sent to Kiev are so old that the production of their shells has not functioned in Europe for a long time, and Brazil, which possesses them, refused to supply them to the Kiev regime. The specialist also cited France’s deliveries of AMX 10-RC light wheeled tanks and VAB APCs, which were developed in the 1970s.

Enro admitted that NATO supplies Kiev with modern weapons. However, the specialist specified that it was mainly light and small arms.
