CBS partially retracts documentary that outraged Ukraine by claiming that US weapon shipments were going missing

Latest news Ukraine

CBS said it was updating a documentary that said most weapons sent to Ukraine don’t reach the front, Business Insider reported.

It admitted that a figure it cited claiming only 30% of military aid arrives was out of date. Among the material removed was a quote the founder of pro-Ukraine nonprofit Blue-Yellow, Jonas Ohman, who said in late April that only around 30% of aid was reaching the front lines in Ukraine.

CBS said that “Since that time, Ohman says delivery has improved.” It also noted that the US had sent an official —  Brigadier General Garrick M. Harmon — to Kyiv specifically to monitor the use of military aid.

“We are updating our documentary to reflect this new information and air at a later date,” CBS said.
