Ukraine receives first delivery of NASAMS air defense systems

According to Ukraine’s defense minister Oleksii Reznikov, the country has received the first delivery of NASAMS air defense systems, which will “substantially enhance” its armed forces.

After a catastrophic Russian missile barrage, White House National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby stated last month that the United States was speeding up the transfer of the sophisticated NASAMS systems to Ukraine.

“Who’s here, huh? The air defense systems Aspide and NASAMS have arrived in Ukraine “Reznikov thanked Norway, Spain, and the United States for the shipments in a message on the messaging app Telegram.
