Footage featuring a large amount of American military equipment was captured at a port in Poland, stoking fears that these could be deployed in Ukraine.
The video clip – which had also been shared by a Latvian news outlet – featured an array of tanks, armored personnel carriers (APCs) and military trucks at the northern Polish port of Gdynia. According to the Latvian outlet, the military vehicles belonged to the U.S. Army’s 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team. The said vehicles were at the port “in preparation for redeployment to the continental U.S.” after serving in Operation Atlantic Resolve” on Feb. 22.
Operation Atlantic Resolve, which has been carried out by Washington since 2014, seeks to bolster American presence in Europe. About 700 combat vehicles, including M1 Abrams tanks – the U.S.’ main battle tank – were deployed to Poland in December 2022.
Neither the White House nor the U.S. Department of Defense has commented on the footage. However, some media outlets from Poland and Ukraine insinuated that these military vehicles could be redeployed – this time in the Ukrainian war zone.
In January of this year, the U.S. said it would send 31 M1 Abrams tanks and eight M88 recovery vehicles to Ukraine. However, it noted that the delivery of these 39 military vehicles would take considerable time. Poland and Germany also pledged to provide a number of Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine.
Since the Russia-Ukraine war broke out in February 2022, the U.S. and its allies have been providing Kyiv with various types of military aid. These include air defense missiles, multiple-launch rocket systems, tanks, self-propelled artillery and anti-aircraft guns.
Austria, Hungary: NO WEAPONS for Kyiv
While the U.S. continues to send military aid to Kyiv at the expense of its own national security, Austria and Hungary went against the grain and agreed not to send any weapons to Ukraine.
Austrian Defense Minister Klaudia Tanner and Hungarian Defense Minister Kristof Szalay-Bobrovniczky inked the agreement during a Jan. 30 meeting in the Hungarian capital Budapest. The defense ministers reiterated their “clear” position against providing Ukraine with war materiel “to prevent a further escalation.”
“We live in a time of danger,” Szalay-Bobrovniczky remarked. “Continuing that close cooperation is of utter importance.” The Hungarian defense minister added that his country would only supply humanitarian aid to Ukrainian refugees, reiterating that Budapest and Vienna would be on the side of peace.
Meanwhile, Tanner warned that the greatest danger is the war – which now involves hybrid warfare – could spread to the rest of Europe. “The effects are not only enormously felt in Austria, but also in Hungary. Eventually, the routes run through our neighboring country to us,” the Austrian defense minister said. (Related: Austria, Hungary agree NOT to send any weapons to Ukraine (perhaps they wish to avoid being destroyed by Russia.))
Over in Russia, Moscow has repeatedly warned the West that it is prolonging the Russia-Ukraine war by sending weapons and military vehicles to Kyiv. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stressed that Western countries are directly involved in the war through their continued assistance to Ukraine.
Lavrov’s office, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, underscored that countries part of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization “play with fire” by supplying weapons to Kyiv. It also emphasized that any convoy of arms for Ukraine will become a legitimate target for Russian forces.

You can’t trust a single word that comes out of the Obamunists of the Biden administration.
This makes me ask the question, If we can sip all these vehicles and weapons across an ocean and back, for an exercise, Why did the government leave all those weapons in Afghanistan?
Would be a shame if these boats sank with all those war tools on board. Kind of stupid having all their eggs in one basket
It looks to me like the Biden Is clearing the way for Russia to take over more countries ahead of Europe.
We aren’t going to send Ukraine our latest M-1 Abrams and allow that technology to fall into enemy hands. Iran is already reverse engineering other US high tech weapons that were sent to Ukraine only to find their way to Iran via Russia.
See military vehicles convoying on my local freeways everyday. Those in the pictures do not look like US military vehicle.
The essential act of war is destruction, not necessarily of human lives, but of the products of human labour. War is a way of shattering to pieces, or pouring into the stratosphere, or sinking in the depths of the sea, materials which might otherwise be used to make the masses too comfortable, and hence, in the long run, too intelligent. Even when weapons of war are not actually destroyed, their manufacture is still a convenient way of expending labour power without producing anything that can be consumed. A Floating Fortress, for example, has locked up in it the labour that would build several hundred cargo-ships. Ultimately it is scrapped as obsolete, never having brought any material benefit to anybody, and with further enormous labours another Floating Fortress is built. In principle the war effort is always so planned as to eat up any surplus that might exist after meeting the bare needs of the population. In practice the needs of the population are always underestimated, with the result that there is a chronic shortage of half the necessities of life; but this is looked on as an advantage. It is deliberate policy to keep even the favoured groups somewhere near the brink of hardship, because a general state of scarcity increases the importance of small privileges and thus magnifies the distinction between one group and another. By the standards of the early twentieth century, even a member of the Inner Party lives an austere, laborious kind of life. Nevertheless, the few luxuries that he does enjoy his large, well-appointed flat, the better texture of his clothes, the better quality of his food and drink and tobacco, his two or three servants, his private motor-car or helicopter — set him in a different world from a member of the Outer Party, and the members of the Outer Party have a similar advantage in comparison with the submerged masses whom we call ‘the proles’. The social atmosphere is that of a besieged city, where the possession of a lump of horseflesh makes the difference between wealth and poverty. And at the same time the consciousness of being at war, and therefore in danger, makes the handing-over of all power to a small caste seem the natural, unavoidable condition of survival.
War, it will be seen, accomplishes the necessary destruction, but accomplishes it in a psychologically acceptable way. In principle it would be quite simple to waste the surplus labour of the world by building temples and pyramids, by digging holes and filling them up again, or even by producing vast quantities of goods and then setting fire to them. But this would provide only the economic and not the emotional basis for a hierarchical society. What is concerned here is not the morale of masses, whose attitude is unimportant so long as they are kept steadily at work, but the morale of the Party itself. Even the humblest Party member is expected to be competent, industrious, and even intelligent within narrow limits, but it is also necessary that he should be a credulous and ignorant fanatic whose prevailing moods are fear, hatred, adulation, and orgiastic triumph. In other words it is necessary that he should have the mentality appropriate to a state of war. It does not matter whether the war is actually happening, and, since no decisive victory is possible, it does not matter whether the war is going well or badly. All that is needed is that a state of war should exist.
Thos article states that the war between Russia and Ukraine started in 2022. Thos is a blatant lie. The war started in 2014!
