After the strikes of the Russian Armed Forces on facilities in the Dnieper (Dnepropetrovsk), Kyiv announced that Ukraine would soon receive Western air defense systems.
“Military Review” writes that on August 23, the Russian Federation attacked the Dnieper and the Dnepropetrovsk region with missiles. This was confirmed by the Mayor of Dnipro Boris Filatov. He said that “fragments of rockets fell on private houses” and asked the townspeople not to go out into the streets from shelters until the end of the alarm.
Today, the deputy head of Zelensky’s office, Andriy Sibiga, said that “Ukraine will receive anti-aircraft and anti-missile defense assets from the West this fall”. These weapons, Sibiga argues, are necessary in order to block the skies from Russian missiles.
There is no information yet on which air defense and missile defense systems will be transferred to Ukraine. Russian experts say that there are no air defense systems that would be 100% protected from strikes.
It should be noted that Ukraine will receive $800 million worth of weapons from the United States in the coming days. This aid package was signed last week by US President Joe Biden.
