Ukraine does not count on American divisions. We have quite enough people who know how to professionally fight.
There is a deficit in the reserve of heavy weapons, so we urgently need to close a niche: ATGM, MANPADS, MLRS and 152/155 mm artillery.

Difficult question. Import substitution took place at BM Oplot (a lot of components were from Russia). Now the plant is ready for serial production, but there is no order from the state.
BM Bulat turned out to be an unsuccessful modernization. Experimental work is now underway, under the code "Crab". This will be a deep modernization of the T-64. Now they use a simplified modernization - T-64BV mod. 2017.

Blinken Will Visit Ukraine in Show of Support Against Russia

WASHINGTON — Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken will travel to Kyiv next week, a clear signal of the Biden administration’s support for Ukraine’s government against threats from Russia.

In a statement announcing the trip, the State Department said Mr. Blinken would “reaffirm unwavering U.S. support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity in the face of Russia’s ongoing aggression.”

Mr. Blinken will meet in Kyiv on Wednesday and Thursday with President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine, senior officials and civil society representatives. His visit will be preceded by a three-day stop in London.

Ukraine becomes a part of NATO, CC: @Akim ...
Oh Boy... Ukraine has just painted a target symbol on its back now. Expect a Russian invasion any time before any deadline.

Ukraine has not become NATO yet as the US quashed all rumors and said that it needs "more from Ukraine" before it can join NATO. This is exactly what happened with Georgia - the US/NATO does not value eastern European countries. They only want to use them as puppets.
