Former Defense Minister of Ukraine, Anatoly Gritsenko, suggested renewing the outdated military hardware of the Ukrainian Armed Forces – by renting from the US. 

According to him, the Ukrainian forces use technology, developed in the middle of the twentieth century. The need for modernization of the arsenal is obvious, and Ukraine has no choice but to seek help from Western partners, Gritsenko said.

The question arises – which country will expand its cooperation with us so in so far that we can get military equipment by renting? Here, the number one contender is America.” – said the former head of the Ukrainian defense department.
