Abstract. The article discusses key trends in military assistance and transfers of weapons and military equipment (WME) by Western countries to Ukraine since the beginning of Russia’s Special Military Operation in February 2022. The study relies on official information about military assistance and arms transfers that has been disclosed by the governments of WME supplying countries. Focusing on this data, the article analyses country specifics, quantitative characteristics, composition, and types of transferred weapons systems, as well as key financial mechanisms of WME supply and military aid to Ukraine. Also, the ratio between military and other types of assistance is discussed. Some conclusions are made about the prospects of Western arms transfers to Ukraine.
