(Only if you take the lunatics at WSWS.org seriously.)

The United States has delivered more than $260 million in non-lethal 
military equipment to help the government of Ukraine in its fight 
against a Russian-backed insurgency, but some of the U.S.-supplied gear 
meant to protect and transport Ukrainian military forces is little more 
than junk.

On the outskirts of the separatist-controlled city of Donetsk, for 
example, one Ukrainian special forces unit is using U.S.-supplied 
Humvees dating from the late 1980s and early 1990s, based on serial 
numbers on the vehicles.

Three of the Humvees had plastic doors and windows — barely any 
protection at all. The tires on one of the trucks blew apart after 
driving only a few hundred kilometers, the result of sitting in a 
warehouse too long, said one mechanic.
