Even if Ukraine arms itself it will be difficult to fight Russia in a conventional conflict. Russians have gained good experience, Ukraine is only limited to donbass conflict.If Russia is serious about the invasion, they have to take advantage of speed and surprise and invade within this month, before NATO and Ukraine can fully mobilize their forces.
Russian top brass have some serious combat experience from chechnya to Syria.
Despite all the hype Private Ramirez is not coming to save Ukraine. NATO will give logistical, intelligence and funding support. I do not see them in combat role.Thereafter, Ukraine will completely activate reserves, plus they are getting surplus NATO supplies every day. It will turn into a fortress. Not to mention NATO is planning a naval exercise in the Mediterranean and the whole allied navy + CBG will be on Russia.
