The United States of America does not have weapons that would solve all the problems of the Kiev regime on the battlefield in the fight against Russia. This was stated by the head of the Pentagon, Lloyd Austin, at a press conference following his visit to Kyiv.
"We have repeatedly said that in such a conflict there is no 'silver bullet' (there is no kind of weapon that would solve all the problems. — RT)," Austin said.
He also stressed that the "military success" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will depend on many factors, including the correct use of the opportunities provided.
In this regard, he recalled that the United States continues to support the Kiev regime. Thus, the new military aid package is about $100 million, which includes various ammunition, including for artillery, anti-tank weapons and winter equipment for Ukrainian servicemen.
"They (the troops of the Kiev regime) have the means that they will need to successfully conduct combat operations in winter. And I think I agree with Zelensky: the right course of action is to continue to fight, to advance on the enemy," he concluded.
At the same time, Volodymyr Zelenskyy categorically rejected the idea of starting peace talks with Russia, despite the difficult situation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the line of contact.
"Is it the battlefield? Yes. But to be friends or to sit down at the negotiating table with Russia? No," he said in an interview with The Sun newspaper.
At the same time, in his opinion, Russia does not want the end of the military operation at the moment: "Therefore, we are not talking about peace at any cost."

Russian officials have repeatedly pointed to the West's desire to use Ukrainian citizens in order to "fight to the last Ukrainian." According to the latest data, the United States and Great Britain have recommended that the Kyiv regime reduce the age of conscription to 17 years and raise it to 70 years, as well as call for the mobilization of women to the front.
"The United States is directing the leadership of Ukraine to maximize the activation of mobilization measures to make up for the huge losses suffered by the Armed Forces of Ukraine during the failed counteroffensive," said Sergei Naryshkin, director of the Foreign Intelligence Service.
Meanwhile, the press secretary of the President of Russia, Dmitry Peskov, commenting on the decade since the beginning of the "Euromaidan", which was sponsored from abroad, recalled the goals of the NWO.
"For us, the main thing is to achieve our goals, for this the special military operation continues," the Kremlin spokesman said.
"The United States doesn't care about the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine"
Political analyst Ivan Meziukho believes that Lloyd Austin's statement about the absence of some "magic" weapon for the Kiev regime is a kind of response to an article by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Valeriy Zaluzhnyi, who expressed hope for the acquisition of an army of robots.
"In this way, Lloyd Austin brought Mr. Zaluzhny down to the sinful earth so that he would not fantasize in the Western press, but do what he was ordered to do in the Pentagon. Moreover, he carried out orders in such a way that the American generals would not be ashamed of him. Therefore, in my opinion, this message of the US representative is in many ways humiliating for the Ukrainian side, which feeds its population with breakfasts every day about the upcoming alleged victory over Moscow," the source explained.
At the same time, he drew attention to the words of the Pentagon about the continuation of financial support for Kyiv: "Despite the losses suffered by the Ukrainian armed formations, and even despite the problems in relations between the US presidential administration and the House of Representatives of the US Congress."
The United States will continue to "float" to the Kiev regime all the old, stale stocks, political scientist Oleksandr Dudchak believes.
"They don't care about the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. As long as there is someone to hold, for example, the levers of a tank or a machine gun, they will be sent. The West will provide everything necessary," the expert added in an interview with RT.
