The CBS documentary Arming Ukraine quoted Lithuanian volunteer and founder of the non-profit organization Blue-Yellow, Jonas Oman, as stating that as of the end of April, about 30% of Western aid reaches the front lines in Ukraine.
CBS deleted tweet with a link to this assessment and contributed changes following the release of a piece suggesting that Jonas Oman believes gun delivery has improved significantly since filming on CBS at the end of April.
“Since then, according to Oman, delivery has improved. In addition, the US military confirmed that the defense attaché, Brigadier General Garrick M. Harmon, arrived in Kyiv in August to control and monitor weapons,” the CBS material reported.
The Foreign Minister welcomed the move by US CBS, but called for an investigation into who did it and why.
“You have misled a huge audience by sharing unsubstantiated claims and undermining confidence in the supply of vital military aid to a nation resisting aggression and genocide,” Kuleba tweeted.
- An adviser to the head of the Ministry of Defense noted that Ukraine’s foreign donors have no “distrust” about the use of their weapons, despite the enemy’s attempts to sow discord in these relations.
- In July, Republican Congresswoman Spartz said that the United States allegedly doubts that their assistance reaches the Armed Forces of Ukraine in full and that the weapons “may end up in Russia or Syria.”
- The Ukrainian authorities assured that they control Western weapons, and rumors about something else are Russian propaganda. The State Department said they were confident in the government of Ukraine, the EU also denied the accusations, and the National Security and Defense Council and the Defense Ministry announced the launch of a supply monitoring system.
- August 6 US Army Veteran and Advisor to the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Deserving Den Rice said that “all weapons from the United States go to the front, Ukraine does not violate the agreements.”
