The UK Ministry of Defense has signed three contracts worth $115 million with arms manufacturers companies to supply Ukraine with air defense systems, according to Sky News.

The largest contract worth over $71 million was signed with the Norwegian Kongsberg company which will provide anti-drone systems capable of detecting, intercepting, and destroying Russian drones.
