The yellow of the Italian Aster-30 missiles for Ukraine: the agreement with France denied

Italy and France made an agreement to send missiles to Ukraine. In truth no. A mystery arose in the L’Opinion article according to which on Friday, after the meeting held in Rome between Guido Crosetto and Sébastien Lecornu, the defense ministers of both countries, an agreement was signed for the joint purchase of 700 Aster- 30 surface-to-air missiles for the Mamba Samp-T air defense system to be deployed in Kiev. As reported by La Stampa, the value of the order would have been 2 billion, but important denials rained down.

“Unsubstantiated news. During the meeting between ministers, no contracts referring to military supplies were signed, discussed or even mentioned” the position taken by the Ministry of Defense on the indiscretion came from France. With the transalpine government that chose the path of silence. But the news had already been anticipated on Thursday by Reuters, which spoke of an imminent agreement to send the Mamba Samp-T system to Ukraine, which is embroiled in the war with Russia.
