Russian Officials Mention Romania as Main Weapon Supplier to Ukraine

Must Read

Romania is listed as one of the major arms suppliers to the Ukrainian Armed Forces by General Valeri Gerasimov, the Chief of Staff of the Russian Army. This occurred during a Smotrim.ru -broadcast briefing in front of the foreign military attachés in Moscow.

He identified the key arms suppliers to Ukraine during the event. The United States, Poland, and the United Kingdom were called supply leaders.

The Russian Red Army Chief of Staff also stated that his nation had information on the quantity of weaponry supplied to Ukraine.

In total, since the beginning of the special military operation, the Western countries have sent four planes, more than 30 helicopters, more than 350 tanks, about 1,000 combat vehicles, 5,000 combat unmanned aerial vehicles, at least 800 armored vehicles and up to 700 artillery systems to Kyiv.

Red Army Chief of Staff Valeri Gerasimov on the total quantity of weapons sent to Ukraine

Unlike the United States, Great Britain, or even Poland, Romania hasn’t openly acknowledged that it has been supplying Ukraine with weaponry. But if not the primary supply, reports have suggested that it serves as a central crossing point for Western weapons into the area of combat. Interestingly, the Ukrainian counterparts in Bucharest or Kyiv have frequently congratulated Romania for delivering weaponry to support the Ukrainian army, despite Romanian officials keeping it a secret.

Compared to what it was under the communist government, Romania’s defence sector is now relatively modest. 15 weapon and ammunition facilities and plants are managed by the state-owned defence corporation Romarm, and they all contribute to the arsenal of defences in Romania. They include assault weapons, rockets, light and heavy ammo, and armoured transports. According to Gerasimov, there is a significant probability that Romania has supplied these weapons to Ukraine.
