Britain contributed to this decision.
Ukraine expects delivery of long-range weapons from Norway. We are talking about three units of the MLRS M270.
This was stated by Norwegian Defense Minister Bjorn Arild Gram, he is quoted by the government website of the kingdom.
“We must support Ukraine so that they can continue their fight for freedom and independence. We need more weapons. Rocket artillery is a weapon that Ukraine needs very much, and in cooperation with Britain, we were able to guarantee the transfer of this type of weapon to Ukraine,” Gram said.
The M270 is a tracked rocket launcher capable of firing from 32 to 300 kilometers, depending on ammunition. Norway will reopen three units of the M270, because they have not been in use since 2005.
Recall that earlier American HIMARS arrived in Ukraine. It is also expected that the United States will soon transfer another batch of HIMARS to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
