Ukraine announces it has received more air defense systems from Western military allies, saying the weapons will help defend against Russian attacks that have recently targeted energy infrastructure.

“NASAMS and Aspide air defense systems arrived in Ukraine! These weapons will significantly strengthen the Ukrainian army and will make our skies safer,” Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov says on social media.

“We will continue to shoot down the enemy targets attacking us. Thank you to our partners — Norway, Spain and the US,” Reznikov adds.
