US sends aircraft parts, UK looks for ways to send missiles to Ukraine
The US and UK feed the "weapons, weapons, weapons" agenda of Ukraine.
The United Kingdom has been seeking ways to supply Ukraine with anti-ship missiles, in addition to mounting its Brimstone missiles to vehicles, according to Boris Johnson on Tuesday.
Upon being asked what king of anti-ship weaponry Britain will be sending to Ukraine, Johnson responded: "One of the systems that we're looking at ... is to see if we could mount some Brimstones on the back of technicals (vehicles) to see if that will do the job." Other options are also on the table
Brimstone missiles have been used in Libya and Syria by the British forces, and are usually launched from high-speed jet aircraft. MBDA, the missiles' manufacturer, has said that the missiles can be used against fast-moving land and sea targets.

Washington's military complex, the Pentagon, isn't ruling out the possibility of an additional drawdown package for authorities to send more military assistance for Ukraine, according to the press secretary, John Kirby on Tuesday.
"I certainly would not rule out the possibility of additional drawdown package authorities being granted to the DoD [Department of Defense] to pull from our inventories," Kirby said during a press briefing.
"If the Ukrainians desire more artillery support, then we're going to do what we can to flow additional artillery support," Kirby said, maintaining that Ukraine has "received additional platforms and parts to be able to increase their aircraft fleet size."
"They have received additional aircraft and aircraft parts to help them get more aircraft in the air.”

Despite sending aircraft parts, Kirby committed that the US has not delivered the entire aircraft to Ukraine.
While Ukraine has recently been asking for the jets, even NATO allies have expressed concern and rejection towards sending fighter jets to Ukraine.
Last month, US president Joe Biden vetoed sending MiG-29 fighter jets from Poland to Ukraine in fear of provoking Russia into a direct escalation with NATO.
