The Ocean Glory bulk carrier has reportedly delivered 350 tonnes of military equipment to Ukraine, according to Odesa media.

The U.S.-flagged vessel arrived on the evening of Wednesday, March 24, Dumskaya reported.

According to the newspaper, the bulk carrier has delivered 35 HMMWV military trucks for the Ukrainian Armed Forces to Ukraine.

The unloading of the equipment may last until Friday.

Just like the previous delivery, which took place in January 2021, the United States is transferring equipment under the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative, mil.in.ua reports.

The previous batch consisted of newly-made armored military trucks.

Armored Humvees have been handed over to the Land Forces of Ukraine’s Armed Forces.

With the launch of international support, the number of HMMWVs transferred from the U.S. exceeded hundreds. In addition to basic trucks, the Armed Forces of Ukraine also received armored modifications and medical ones.

  • There’s no military advantage to be gained from receiving this junk. Ukraine needs F-16’s and battleships. This crap won’t upset Putin, so Biden approved it after consulting his master in China.

    • What?! I agree with you but…if we start using planes, they would too.
      This is just one part of the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative that started in 2018. It also includes two more Mark VI patrol boats, “lethality enhancements”, additional counter-artillery radars and tactical equipment; continued support for a satellite imagery and analysis capability; and equipment to support military medical treatment and combat evacuation procedures (which is probably the Humvees). There would be a lot more after getting rid of the corrupt judges and ruSSo-Oligarchs. There is still, I would guess, about a half billion tied up because of that.

    • Mike the US offer Ukraine several Perry class frigates which could have been a big step up in their naval capability. But according to the Navy Commander they had to decline because even one Perry’s maintenance was equal to the entire navy’s maintenance budget.
      Nor did they even have docking facilities for a ship that size.
      In 2014 Canada offered Ukraine 20 surplus F-18s (not the newer super hornets.) but Ukraine had to decline because of budget considerations.
      The US could give Ukraine the latest F-16Vs but without expensive pilot, maintenance training and a supply stream the planes will be gathering dust in a few months.
      Ukraine has come a long way but they are doing it on a shoe string budget.

      • I understand to a certain extend. But Ukraine would have enough cash if all corrupt fuckers would be arrested and stripped of their assets. Ukraine could shit money once the corrupt swines are downe!

    It was a modest delivery but perhaps we will send much more. Wake the fossil up and put fire under his wrinkled ass.
