The world was not preparing for a big war, so you should not expect a quick rearmament of the Armed Forces of Ukraine – most likely, it will be after the end of a large-scale war with Russia. About it in an interview Ukrainian truth said the Minister of Defense Alexey Reznikov.

He was asked: how to break the situation, when Ukraine is given modern weapons in small quantities, and achieve systemic large-scale rearmament.
“To avoid illusions, we won’t break it in the near future,” he replied.
According to him, the very transfer of modern weapons to Ukraine already means a tectonic shift, because just a year ago it was impossible.
“But the fact is that the vast majority of the world really did not prepare for the third world war. They were all sure that there would not be a big war. Therefore, today, in order to simply give us some kind of weapons, there are so many of them in warehouses. About even Christina Lambrecht, the German defense minister, speaks openly about this,” Reznikov said.
The minister noted that Western weapons had never fought against the Russians before. According to him, today Ukraine has actually become a testing ground in combat mode.
At the same time, he believes that the transition to the systemic rearmament of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will take place after the end of this war with Russia. According to him, it is obvious for NATO that Ukraine is “an eastern shield that needs to be armed and equipped so that they can sleep peacefully.”
