The United States expects that the first two batteries of NASAMS anti-aircraft missile systems  to strengthen the air defense system (AD) will be delivered to Ukraine within two months.

The relevant information was announced at an open briefing on September 16 by the US Department of Defense spokesman General Patrick Ryder, the Pentagon reported .

“We hope that two NASAMS batteries will be sent within the next two months. These air defense systems will help Ukraine defend against air threats, in particular from aircraft, drones and cruise missiles,” he said.

Recall that President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Ukraine is discussing with 5 countries the provision of air defense systems to our state.

As you know,  in the second half of August, the United States announced a new package of military assistance to Ukraine , which includes NASAMS systems that will be able to strengthen the air defense system (air defense) of Ukraine.

Previously, the opinion was expressed that two batteries of NASAMS anti-aircraft missile systems with missiles for them would be able to cover a maximum of two objects .

The other day, on September 13, Yuriy Ignat, the speaker of the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine  , said that Ukraine expects not only NASAMS, but also  German IRIS-T systems from Western partners .

  1. “We are talking about the next two months”

    Couldn’t another system or other systems have been provided two months AGO, as an intermediary, to at least help protect the civilian population?
