The new package, according to information reported by CNN, will include depleted uranium munitions for the first time. By the way, the shells will be used by Abrams tanks that will arrive in Ukraine in the fall. There is also $100 million for long-term programs and not quite for needs related to the current situation: “I met with President Zelensky and discussed long-term sustainable security agreements for the use of modern military equipment” between “land, air, sea and cyberspace.” Intelligence training programs are also on the list.

However, it would be wrong to assume that once the first line of Russian defense is “broken”, the road goes downhill. The following lines also include minefields, anti-tank barriers and deep trenches.
“The second line is huge, even if it is not as strong as the first,” said Oleksandr Shtubun, spokesman for Ukrainian forces in the south. “The density of mines is less, but their number is large. The trenches and bunkers are not that solid, but I don’t understand why everyone is talking about weak defenses.”
