US Navy Secretary Carlos Del Toro has stated that within the next six months, the US Navy may need to choose between arming itself or Ukraine, as weapons producers aren't making them quickly enough.
Del Toro was asked by a reporter whether "the Navy might get to the point where it has to make the decision whether it needs to arm itself or arm Ukraine, and has the Navy gotten to that point yet?" according to Defense One.
He responded by saying "With regards to deliveries of weapons systems for the fight in Ukraine…Yeah, that's always a concern for us. And we monitor that very, very closely."
"I wouldn't say we're quite there yet, but if the conflict does go on for another six months, for another year, it certainly continues to stress the supply chain in ways that are challenging," Del Toro added.
