Pentagon Agency Wants Arms Monitors On Ground In Ukraine To Track Billions In Hardware Shipped Much belatedly now that there's a seemingly endless US weapons pipeline going into Ukraine, the Pentagon is worried they might end of in the “wrong hands” and is seeking to take steps to do something about it.

It now wants to track serial numbers of US weaponry on the ground as the fight for Ukraine continues.

This would go beyond the current set-up of the Pentagon simply taking Ukrainian officials' “word for it” when it comes to proper distribution and usage of weapons and ammo against the Russian invading forces.

After all, there have been signs the Department of Defense is tapping into America's own vital stockpiles in order to supply the Ukrainians.

The Pentagon's “end-use monitoring” mission typically involves inspectors physically reviewing weapons and checking serial numbers.
