Elizabeth Palmer from CBS News wrote an article how Army SOS helps under-equipped Ukrainian army

Elizabeth Palmer writes that Ukraine’s military, is in desperate need of better weapons.

According to the CBS News corespondent Ukrainian troops — poorly trained and equipped — are now under heavy pressure from the rebels armed by Russia. Although conditions have improved slightly over eight months, the Ukrainian troops still rely on aid from donations.

Further is a direct quotation form Elizabeth Palmer’s coverage about how Army SOS helps under-equipped Ukrainian army.

Oleksi Savchenko showed CBS News around the Kiev warehouse of his organization Army SOS, just one of the civilian groups that raises funds using social media and collects supplies for the troops from all over the world, including basics like goggles and radios.

“We have collected and spent about 25 million hryvnia. It’s more than $1 million,” Savchenko says.

Before dawn Wednesday, Army SOS loaded up and we joined them for the 500 mile drive across Ukraine to a staging point 30 miles from the front line.

Among the most high-tech donations are drones, custom-made in Army SOS’s own workshop.

They help, but what the Ukrainians say they need are ultra-sophisticated American weapons systems for secure communications and detecting enemy guns.

We asked if the U.S. did send lethal weapons and aid, if that would risk escalating the war.

“This war is already going on at full power,” Savchenko says.
