UK to supply Ukraine with advanced air-to-air missiles
The United Kingdom will deliver to Ukraine Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile (Amraam) rockets, Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said on Thursday.
The missiles to be used with a US-ground-launch system will allow Ukraine to shoot down cruise missiles.
In a statement, Ben Wallace said: “Russia’s latest indiscriminate strikes on civilian areas in Ukraine warrant further support to those seeking to defend their nation. So today I have authorized the supply of Amraam anti-aircraft missiles to Ukraine.”
“These weapons will help Ukraine defend its skies from attacks and strengthen their overall missile defense,” Wallace added.
