Aster-30 missiles for Ukraine: there is an agreement between France and Italy

“The situation at the front, and in the Donetsk region in particular, remains extremely serious,” said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The Russian offensive with its barrage of missiles has been putting the Ukrainian defense to the test in recent hours. In the coming days, the Italian government will launch the sixth shipment of weapons and there was no lack of controversy: “The third world war would start when Russian tanks reached Kiev and therefore the borders of Europe. that they don’t, it’s the only way to stop the third world war,” said Defense Minister Guido Crosetto, who ended up in Russia’s crosshairs. Russia’s Security Council vice-president Dmitri Medvedev called him of “rare fool”. “There are not many fools in the power structures in Europe,” the former Russian president wrote on Telegram, but “a certain Minister of Defense of a certain Italy called for the supply of armored vehicles and other weapons to Ukraine as a prevention of World War III. A rare eccentric.”

Meanwhile, according to reports in the French newspaper l’Opinion, France and Italy will order 700 Aster-30 missiles, which equip the Mamba SAMP-T systems, for a value of two billion euros. Paris and Rome will soon deliver the Samp-T system to Ukraine. Paris and Rome would have finalized the decision yesterday, on the occasion of the meeting in Rome between the Minister of Defence, Guido Crosetto, and the Minister of the Armed Forces of France, Sébastien Lecornu.

North Korea has also openly positioned itself against sending more Western weapons to Ukraine through Kim Yo-jong, sister of leader Kim Jong-un. For Pyongyang, the United States “crossed the red line” with the “sinister intent of achieving its hegemonic goal by further expanding the proxy war to destroy Russia”.
