To defeat Russia, Ukraine needs Western partners to hand over several thousand heavy weapons

Ukraine is asking for a concise list of weapon needs to achieve parity with the enemy, according to a tweet by Advisor the the President’s Administration Mykhaylo Podolyak. Currently, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are particularly short of MLRS and howitzers.  An infographic demonstrating the difference between what Ukraine has received and what it needs was published by the Financial Times.

As of June 13, about 270 tanks were delivered to Ukraine. However, to achieve parity with Russia, Ukraine needs 500 more tanks.

About 50 multiple rocket launch systems have been delivered to the Armed Forces, but Ukraine needs 300 more.

Ukraine has received more than 250 155-mm howitzers, but is in desperate need of another 1,000 longer-range big guns.

The United States has provided by far the most financial, humanitarian and military support to Ukraine. In second place is the United Kingdom, followed by the European Union as a whole, and then by EU member countries led by Poland.
