Ukraine thanks the USA for the decision to supply NASAMS air defense system, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in an interview with CBS news.
“Third, and very important. It’s air defense. For this, we also need that the US showed its leadership character and gave Ukraine an opportunity for air defense. A positive decision has already been made. I thank the president and Congress, and both parties that the decision has been made to give Ukraine NASAMs. It’s air defense but it won’t be nearly enough in order to protect schools, universities, education infrastructure, hospitals and medical infrastructure and to protect homes of Ukrainians,” Zelenskyy said.
NASAMS is a Norwegian anti-aircraft missile system with an American radar that shoots down planes, helicopters, and cruise missiles.
