The UK has confirmed it: Ukraine has started using Storm Shadow

May 18, 2023

British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said on Thursday that he was aware of Ukraine's use of long-range Storm Shadow missiles, which London had provided to Kyiv.

According to a Yevropeiska Pravda correspondent, Wallace said this at a press conference with Norwegian Defense Minister Bjørn Aril Gram.

"All I can say is that, according to my information, it (Storm Shadow - ed.) has already been used after we announced that it was being sent to Ukraine. But I will not go into details," he said.


Later, the British minister emphasized the importance of providing Ukraine with long-range equipment.

"The HIMARS and M270 systems have really changed the situation on the battlefield for the Ukrainians. The Russians were forced to relocate many command and control centers beyond the range of these weapons. That is why it is important to have the means to hit these centers. It helps Ukraine at key moments," Wallace said.
