On April 28, the German Bundestag passed the so-called “Defending Peace and Freedom in Europe – Full Support” following the declaration that it would equip Ukraine with “Cheetah” self-propelled anti-aircraft artillery (7 people voted against it). Germany will give Ukraine heavy weaponry in response to Ukraine’s move. Prior to this, the German government had consistently refused to send Ukraine with heavy weaponry. It had even declined to offer Ukraine any military support prior to the war, angering allies.
Even if other nations are dramatically increasing their military help to Ukraine, the US government remains the primary source of military aid to Ukraine and coordinates Western countries’ military aid to Ukraine. It’s worth remembering that many of the weapons and equipment sent to Ukraine by the US government were made in the Soviet Union or Russia. The US administration has confirmed providing the Ukrainian Air Force with 21 unflyable MiG-29 fighter planes. Other accounts indicate that Ukraine received some Soviet/Russian heavy weaponry from the US’s fictitious enemy troops.
