Last year, France already provided Ukraine with about 50 Storm Shadow/SCALP-EG air-to-surface missiles with a range of hitting targets up to 250 kilometers – thanks to these ammunition, the occupiers were very “restless” and now it has become known about a new batch of such “gifts.”
About the fact that French leader Emmanuel Macron intends to personally visit our country next month to sign a 2-sided defense agreement identical to the agreement concluded between Ukraine and the UK, writes NBN, referring to the Reuters material.
According to Macron, in the near future Ukraine will be provided with 40 Storm Shadow/SCALP-EG missiles, and this, not counting several hundred air bombs—the delivery of this cargo is expected over the coming weeks. In addition, the French President promised to come to Kiev in February to finalize the texts of the defense agreements.
In addition to all of the above, France will provide Ukraine with significantly more diverse technology and equipment necessary “to protect the sky.”
Also, Macron emphasized that the volume of assistance to Ukraine from the European Union will soon increase, since Moscow’s victory will have a serious negative impact on the security of all European countries.
