Ukrainian snipers are about to get this powerful new upgrade courtesy of Canada

1/8/19
Ukraine's Ground Forces (army) will soon be on the receiving end of a massive shipment of sniper rifles from Canada. PGW Defence Technologies, based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, has been contracted to supply Ukrainian snipers with anti-material rifles in deal valued at over USD $770,000. The rifle in question is none other than PGW's flagship heavy-caliber rifle, the LRT-3 Sniper Weapon System. Produced in Canada since 2005, this gun is chambered for the popular .50 BMG round, easily capable of disabling light vehicles and punching though armor with deadly effect. Coming with an optionally-suppressed 29 inch stainless steel barrel and clocking in at just a shade over 25 lbs unloaded, the LRT-3 looks every bit the part of a heavy-caliber ranged gun. It boasts a max effective range of around 1800 meters (1.1 miles), comparable to the American Barrett M107 rifle which is also on its way to the Ukrainian army as part of a separate deal. While PGW has mostly flown under the radar over the past decade, it is no stranger to the arms game.

Buying over $770,000 worth of .50 caliber sniper rifles is yet another step in that direction, which will likely see the Ukrainian military adopt a number of small arms (and ammunition) in common standardized usage with NATO forces, including the 5.56x45 and 7.62x51 mm NATO rounds. In fact, the arsenals of the former Soviet satellite republic, which are still hugely populated with old-school Warsaw Pact guns like the AKM, the AK-74 and the Makarov PM, have gradually seen an influx of weapons chambered for NATO standard calibers, such as the bullpup Tavor assault rifle, and the Zbroyar Z-10 designated marksman rifle, a locally-produced AR-10 derivative which shoots 7.62 NATO.

Props to Canada. With every new year, the weaponry in the Ukraine armed forces becomes ever more Westernized and NATO compliant.

Maybe they'll get Parubiy to set up in the Ukrana Hotel to test the new weapons in the Maidan to see if they work as good as his last operation using the same circumstances to create a false flag event to manipulate for political purposes. A coup d'etat if you'll remember correctly. $5 billion of USA monies spent organizing events according to the CIA mouthpiece that delivered cookies to the rioters in the Maidan, eh?

Have you EVIDENCE to support your RT.com inspired fantasy?

Oh, and the $5 billion LIE again? Really? You haven't been fact-slapped enough on that?

That sounds right. The US helps protect the development of a goldmine in Turkey, and Canada helps safeguard our stockpiles of coal in the Ukraine.

You couldn't get a grip on a fact if it was hanging out of your nose.

Why do you continue to lie about the $5 Billion?

The USA lady Ambassador said they spent $5 billion. End of story. The lady passing out cookies. The lady organizing rioters from the US Embassy Office down the street from the Maidan. The lady who decided "Yats" woudl be a good leader. Conspiracy Facts, don't ya' know. No, you don't know, you're waiting for your next cerebellum download from the Pentagon.

You have been given the breakdown on the funds. Add to that much of the money PRECEDED the Ukrainian uprising. Add to that the funds were in support of commerce, etc.

Why do you insist on lying about the $5 Billion even after your lie has been exposed?

You are surrounded by Pentagon facts and those are not the facts on the ground nor in the real World. CIA and deniablity, eh? Oh wait, another coming to me, Goebbels says just tell the Big lies and keep repeating them. Ary you "Pete" or "Repeat." Clue: You are "repeat."

You're right. Money preceeds a coup d'etat. Like putting oil in an engine to start it. $5 billion American preceeded the coup d'etat. Laying the groundwork. Like Orange flags and stuff, ad infinitum.

That's $5 billion since independence. Do the math: 2014-1991 = 23 years | $5 billion ÷ 23 years = $22 million per year. Much of that funding was for the de-nuclearization program.

From 1998-2008 US aid to Russia was $752 million = $75 million per year | US aid to Russia slowly faded out yearly after 2008 and terminated in 2010.

I'm sure you are referring to Victoria Nuland Asst. Sec. of State for Europe under obama. Imagine how bad things would be
in that theatre now if Trump didn't win & Nuland was still in that post. You are correct Nuland herself revealed she spent 5 billion over
half a decade to finally see the Kiev Maidan she wished for. Nuland is a lunatic - a neocon lunatic with apparent personal issues with Russia

She was a disgrace to everything real diplomacy stands for, and a horrible example to women who want to become diplomats.She still hasn't recovered after Putin slapped her on the face with Crimea changing hands quicker that one can say peninsula. If her tongue were any more forked it could be laid on the table next to a knife and spoon.
