Great Britain contracted air defense equipment for Ukraine for $115 million


About this informs Sky News.

The largest contract for 56 million pounds was signed by the British Ministry of Defense with the Norwegian defense company Kongsberg. It provides for the provision of anti-drone systems that Ukraine will be able to use to detect, track, destroy and disrupt the operation of Russian UAVs.

Among other things, we are talking about the CORTEX Typhon system, the supply of which the Norwegian manufacturer announced earlier this week.

The other two deals also relate to air defence, but the British Ministry of Defense did not provide more specific details about them.

It is noted that the agreements were made within the framework of the International Fund for Ukraine (IFU), which has so far raised more than 拢770 million to provide lethal and non-lethal military support to Ukraine.

  • We will remind, today, August 17, it became known that Ukraine received another package of military aid from Germany, which included, in particular, air defense equipment, namely IRIS-T air defense missile launchers and almost 5,000 smoke munitions.
