Help me understand how these patrol boats are going to counter a Russian threat to Ukraine. Thanks.

Just the site of these warships will transform the Russians into compliant puppies.

Also I read somewhere that Uncle Sugar is giving the Ukrainians some kayaks for close in work.

Everything is great, no worries.

Kayaks make more sense. You can easily and quietly deploy divers off of those.

Why don't they just leave rafts around with old men shaking their fists at passing Russian ships. That will be as combat effective as old coast guard patrol ships.

How did you find out their secret plans?

I think I read recently that the Russians have put 92,000 troops on the border and the Ukrainians expect a Jan or Feb invasion.

Realistically, what part of such an operation would involve naval forces? The Russians running around the Black Sea in modern warships would be a threat to the Ukraninan rear, not?

How else will the blankets and bottled water get there?😉

Why isn't some benevolent supporter underwriting the recruitment of Chechen and Dagestani militants to go to Ukraine to operate as "contractors" supporting the Ukrainians in the "disputed" eastern areas? It'd be the sort of thing the Russian separatists would find an excellent motivator to pull up stakes and move to Rostov.

Kayaks are certainly a lot more survivable in that theater.

HMS Exeter, great idea. The more jihadists put to rest, the better.

They are being redeployed to the Ukraine because they weren't very effective as a force projection in the Mongolian desert…

Another thing is surprising. Ukraine inherited from the USSR the most powerful shipbuilding capacities, including military ones.
And why now all that Ukraine can claim is handouts from abroad?

Well it may be just for "optics", which many in DC are masters of, i.e. "Look I sent warships to intimidate Putin !" …

I am the greatest leader since GW, US Grant, and FDR !" …
