The next aid package for Ukraine will include rockets for NASAMS, Pentagon

The United States has announced a new military aid package for Ukraine. It soon became known that it would contain missiles for the Norwegian NASAMS anti-aircraft missile systems. With the help of them, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be able to shoot down enemy air targets.

It is known that the total number of weapons that Washington will provide to our state in the new aid package can be estimated at $2.5 billion. Actually, it was announced at the Pentagon on the night of Friday, January 20.

Canada will provide Kyiv with NASAMS air defense systems

Note that for now the Pentagon does not intend to provide us with these additional anti-aircraft missile systems. However, on the website of the department it is noted that Canada will transfer these installations to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Canada announced last week that it would provide Ukraine with the NASAMS air defense system. This is a big investment in Ukraine's ability to defend its sky,” said US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin.

At the same time, he noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin, starting a full-scale war, did not count on the fact that the Ukrainian nation will resist the Russian invaders with such courage and desperation.

Pay attention!The fact that Ukraine will receive NASAMS from Canada became known after a conversation between Ukrainian Defense Minister Alexei Reznikov and his Canadian counterpart Anita Anand. The high-ranking official noted that these systems will help the Ukrainian army protect critical infrastructure from drone and missile attacks. In Germany, a meeting was held within the framework of “Ramstein” of the allies of our state. At this event, the question was decided whether the Armed Forces would receive tanks from partners.

  • In fact, the newly appointed Minister of Defense of Germany, Boris Pistorius, stated that the West would not yet transfer combat military tanks to our state. However, Germany will check the stocks of Leopard 2 tanks.
  • In addition, the new military aid package from the Pentagon will include, in particular, 90 Stryker armored personnel carriers with 20 mine installations. It should be noted that the provision of these weapons became known a few hours before Ramstein.
