Danilov responded to reproaches about the lack of weapons
Danilov on the reasons for the lack of weapons/Collage of Channel 24 fights against Russian occupiers who came to our land to kill and seize territories. However, you can often hear that the Ukrainian defenders have too few weapons to defend their native land.
These words are on Channel 24Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, commented emotionally. He stressed that the Armed Forces of Ukraine respond as much as possible and rebuff the invaders to the extent that they have in their arsenal.
These are our common consequences
Danilov agreed that Ukraine does not have a 100% supply of the weapons it needs, so there really may not be something on this or that sector of the front.
These are the consequences of our common 30 years of reckless behavior, when we expected, either from the left, or from the right, or Russia, or Europe, instead of building our own house, he believes.
“These are the consequences the boards of all our presidents who were elected to power and promised that they would protect and protect, and when they came to power, apart from rowing into their pockets and the pockets of brothers, sons-in-law and godfathers, they did nothing else,” Danilov added.
The Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council noted that he understands everyone who hurts, and assured that he hurts the same way. But, in his opinion, everyone needs to understand that this situation is our common consequences of turning a blind eye and not paying attention to how someone signed the Minsk agreements, who sold weapons and the like.

Aleksey Danilov remembered that at the beginning of a full-scale war, Ukraine had nothing but Soviet artillery of the 122nd and 150th th caliber. At the same time, the partners who help us today did not believe in Ukraine back then.
“No one believed that in 5-6 days Kyiv would not fall, certain events would not occur,” the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council stated.
He said that since November last year, he had a lot of meetings, where everyone thought and said the same thing – Ukraine will not be able to withstand the Russian invasion. The answer, he said, was simple: “Help us with weapons, and we will deal with this enemy on our own.”
Consequently, for the first 2-3 weeks of a full-scale war, our state had to prove that it was able to stand against the aggressor even with bare hands. >
Danilov also recalled that in winter, even before the full-scale invasion, Ukrainians had only 3 names on their lips – anti-tank Javelins and NLAW and more powerful Stingers.
We had no more help, and we had to go barehanded and gnaw this abomination that came to our land,” he said.
Today the situation has changed. Today we have more weapons and other names for M777, HIMARS, “Crabs” and more. “Our slang has changed, and as this slang changes, so does the war,” Danilov said.
However, this is still not enough. According to the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, there has not yet been a turning point and a war, and we have not yet broken Russia's backbone. The reason is that the infidels still have a lot of weapons, including artillery.
