Ukraine to get anti-drone systems in coming days, NATO’s Stoltenberg says



NATO will deliver air defense systems to Ukraine within the next few days in order to help the country fight drone attacks from Iran and other countries who are targeting critical infrastructure. The alliance’s secretary-general announced this on Tuesday (18 Oct).

Russia escalated its attacks against Ukraine’s infrastructure, far from the frontline, after suffering several military setbacks. Ukraine claimed that drones have destroyed almost a third its power stations over the past week.

NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg ( photographed) spoke at a Berlin security conference and stated that allies must increase their air defense system deliveries to prevent attacks.

He stated that “the most important thing we can do is to deliver on the promises made by our allies and to increase our delivery of air defense systems.”

“NATO will provide counter-drone systems to counter specific threats, including Iran’s.”

Iran had promised to supply Russia missiles and more drones as the West has limited its military efforts in Ukraine.

Stoltenberg stated, “No nation should support Russia’s illegal war against Ukraine.”
