"of" usage with much and many

When we use much and many with "of", we must use  (the, my, your, these, those) before the noun to be used.

Many countries    =    Many of these countries   (many of these / those , much of this / that)
Much sugar        =    Much of the sugar

but we can use direct with pronouns such as you, us, it.
