Miami police in the state of Florida, USA, began to buy weapons from the residents of the city to send them to Ukraine. The Washington Post writes about this.

According to the newspaper, such measures were taken in order to remove firearms from the streets of the city and support the Ukrainian military. Law enforcement officers offer $50 for pistols, — $100, for AK-47 or AR-15 assault rifles — $150.

Earlier, BAGNET reported that not so long ago, the former Deputy Chief of Staff of the US Army, General Jack Keane, said that the supply of Western weapons to Ukraine was too slow. According to him, it takes several weeks and even months for weapons sent from the West to reach the troops.
