Spain will supply additional Hawk air defense systems to Ukraine at the request of NATO

Spain will supply additional Hawk anti-aircraft systems to Ukraine in response to a request from NATO. This was stated by the Minister of Defense of Spain Margarita Robles during a meeting with the Ukrainian military, undergoing training on Spanish territory.


Madrid decided to comply with NATO's request and send two more Hawk anti-aircraft systems to Ukraine in addition to the four already transferred. Thus, Kyiv will have six MIM-23 Hawk air defense systems, adopted by the American army in 1960. The complex was repeatedly modernized and was in service with the US Army until 1994, and the Marine Corps until 2002.

Two more launchers will be sent precisely because we were asked to do so with NATO to help Ukraine (...) We are firmly committed to Ukraine because we understand that it is exercising its legitimate right to defense, becoming a victim of invasion and brutal war

Robles said.

In addition to supplying the complexes themselves, Spain will train the Ukrainian military in their use, as well as on the Aspide air defense system.

Meanwhile, the UK announced plans to send 1 anti-aircraft missiles to Ukraine, which ones are not disclosed, but it is specified that they are for anti-aircraft systems already delivered. Thus, London intends to help Kyiv fight Russian drones and missiles that strike at critical infrastructure. Delivery is carried out at the request of Kyiv.

The commitment to provide hundreds more surface-to-air missiles is a continuation of our defense support for Ukraine against Russian aggression and will help Ukraine counter the threat of illegal destruction of critical national infrastructure.

- said British Secretary of Defense Ben Wallace.

    I previously thought that it was not necessary to use tactical nuclear weapons, but now I think that it is necessary.
    Why fuck with conditional Avdiivka?! Fuck 2-3-4-5 TYAZ from 152mm and there are none. How many lives will be saved?

          This is NATO, you can't go there. For starters, at least the war should be called a war, stop pumping gas through Ukraine, get out of the nuclear testing maratorium, and burn some kind of product on Novaya Zemlya. They won’t understand - to blast tactical nuclear weapons in western Ukraine, and warn that if weapons supplies continue, strikes will be inflicted on Poland.
          But this requires testicles, which are not. Grandmother is still a grandmother. request

      It was impossible and suddenly the faucet on the oil and gas pipelines was damaged, then what should effective managers do? They only know how to steal and you offer to smash everything that they have not yet stolen. And at the expense of lives, women still give birth to us

        Is it weak for the Basques and Catalans to supply captured Stringers and Javelins?
        The question is rhetorical.

      And the option that the Supreme Commander-in-Chief has not yet used all possible options for the return of legitimate Novorossia to the Russian Federation is no longer being considered, what if he deceived you, and did you believe him?

          Well, if you follow the lead of liars like that, then I am against the use of nuclear weapons to achieve your joint goals. And neither of you will be defenders of your land.

      Silly, we will lose allies. Putin's softness has led Russia to disaster. When the operation began, the West was really afraid to supply. But then our politicians intervened, who answered all the talk about deliveries that the new weapon would be a legitimate target. In fact, politicians simply gave the green light to the supply of weapons. And it was necessary to deploy nuclear weapons towards Europe, and declare that any supply of weapons and we break off diplomatic relations. Putin turned out to be Nicholas II.

      It seems like they said that after such an event, difficulties will begin at the military unit of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine.

        Namely, NATO can knock out our entire grouping of troops only with Tomahawks. And they have already stated that they will do so in the event of the use of nuclear weapons

      And it is high time for our state to show interest in the liberation struggle of the Basques and the Catalans. Yes, and in many other places to tickle the West's intimate zones.

        Burkhalt in 2014 already tickled some intimate areas. The result is there...

          2. Switzerland and refused to supply weapons.
          3. We don’t tickle (or rather we don’t give a kick in the balls) that’s where the West is grappling.

            1. I agree, I made a mistake.

        The Basques and Catalans just didn’t have enough to contact the Russian Federation, they have few problems of their own. In Spain, the communists are now in power, if anything. These snot will not chew.

    This is not the same Spain of 1939 (who, and as he remembers).
    Or another one - 2020-21, with our RCBZ in covid cities?

    Good. Even only FOR! BUT NOT TO THE DAMAGE TO THE POPULATION, CITIZENS OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION!

    Guys, it's my fault for the surrender of Kherson.
    Well, I can't bathe!
    I washed for the first time - the war began with the Germans.
    The second time I washed myself - Stalin died.
    Washed for the third time - Kherson passed.

    So don't believe in omens. I can't wash - karma won't let me!

    . If you think about it, figure it out ... what can be done and launched faster, bomb drones or anti-aircraft missiles ???
    Again the competition of percussion means against means of protection!
    By the way, and for the price, oh what a big difference!

    But what is Spain? Spain doesn't exist. The Anglo-Saxons felled him for a whole century. From Trafalgar to 1898. It resisted for centuries but was destroyed throughout the 19th century. At least he went to kill. He fell with honor. That's what I expect from Russia and its army. Protect Kherson. Another blow to the energy infrastructure of Ukraine.

    Spain is a member of NATO. Deliveries from Spain, there are deliveries from NATO. NATO is at war with the Russian Federation. Spain is at war with Russia.
