The UK Ministry of Defense has announced the signing of three contracts worth more than £90 million ($115 million) to supply Ukraine with air defense equipment.
This was reported by Sky News.
The largest contract for 56 million pounds was signed by the British Ministry of Defense with the Norwegian defense company Kongsberg. It provides for the provision of counter-drone systems that Ukraine can use to detect, track, destroy, and disrupt Russian UAVs.
Among other things, this includes the CORTEX Typhon system, the delivery of which the Norwegian manufacturer announced earlier this week.
The other two deals also relate to air defense, but the British Ministry of Defense did not provide more specific details about them.
