(Kyiv) Ukraine announced on Monday that it had received new air defense systems from the United States, Spain and Norway, intended to counter Russia’s heavy bombardment of critical infrastructure.
“NASAMS and Aspide air defense systems have arrived in Ukraine! These weapons will significantly strengthen the Ukrainian army and make our skies safer,” Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov tweeted.
“We will continue to shoot down the enemies who attack us. Thank you to our partners: Norway, Spain and the United States,” he added.
Ukraine has been demanding deliveries of modern air defense systems to its Western allies for weeks, as Moscow has stepped up strikes on electricity and water infrastructure, causing massive cuts as winter approaches. .
Other countries such as Germany or France have already supplied anti-aircraft systems to Kyiv.
