Italian Foreign Minister: Preparations for sending SAMP-T air defense systems to Ukraine are at the final stage

Announced in December, the delivery of the SAMP-T anti-aircraft missile system to Ukraine will take place in the near future. This was stated by the head of the Italian Foreign Ministry Antonio Tajani.

Italy and France are completing preparations for the transfer to Ukraine of the SAMP-T anti-aircraft system, promised to Kyiv in December last year. As it was reported then, Italy should supply radars, and France - launchers of the complex. The Italians are already ready to fulfill their part of the deal and expect the French to be ready. The complex should be included in the sixth package of military assistance to Italy for Ukraine, what else will be included in it, Rome does not disclose.

In cooperation with France, we are completing the shipment of SAMP-T, and in addition, other activities are planned that we do not disclose. (...) It is quite clear to Ukraine's allies that we must do everything possible to help this nation in its struggle for independence

Tayani said.

Italy was supposed to send the sixth military package back in early December, but froze it, because Ukraine urgently requested air defense systems. A month and a half later, the issue with the air defense system is almost resolved, it remains to send them to Kyiv.

SAMP-T air defense systems are designed both to protect troops and cover strategically important stationary objects. The complex is capable of shooting down aircraft, UAVs, cruise and anti-radar missiles, including tactical ballistic missiles, which Kyiv really needs. To date, there are no such air defense systems in service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine. SAMP-Ts are capable of shooting down aircraft at ranges from 3 km to 100 km and ballistic missiles at ranges from 3 km to 25 km, with a strike height of up to 25 km.

        History shows that European countries love when they face a table, hang fines on them and use them like a cash cow. That's how you should treat them, not lisp

      Silver hi 90% chance yes they will. And most likely that at the first hint of negotiations, they will go with pleasure, well, or fly.

      Russia itself even supplies the necessary components for the military-industrial complex of Ukraine from China.
      To whom is the war, and to whom is the mother dear.

    Something Italians relaxed, probably blacks, sorry Arabs and black citizens from Africa decreased.
    It is necessary to make sure that there are many times more refugees from Africa, then the Italian government would have something to do.

    It is possible to destroy without entering the affected area. there is something. But most likely it will be deployed in the depths of the territory

      If the old air defense systems have not been destroyed so far, probably not everything is so simple.
      In the spring they tried to kill the air defense, but the losses in aviation were not commensurate. Now they don’t even try to destroy air defense. Look, they practice depletion of ammunition for air defense systems. Front-line aviation does not fly into the territories controlled by Kyiv, since air defense is still combat-ready.
      They shoot everything they can so that the Ukrainians run out of missiles for air defense systems.
      To destroy the SRK, you need to find it somehow. Is there anything to discover? That's where the problem is.
      Hope only for Konashenkov. Konashenkov destroyed all the Air Force and Air Defense of the Ukrainians in the spring.
      And in September, he even destroyed 4 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles, which have not yet been delivered. Karl in September 2022, he announced the destroyed BMP Bradley.

    Preparation of Daggers for attacks on the manufacturing plant at the final stage.
    They provided evidence of the presence of foreign equipment that kills our soldiers - they gave a day to withdraw personnel from the plant - they struck a blow at the manufacturing plant.
    Nothing personal, no politics - just business. Is that what they say?

    Here we have an offensive. They will strengthen air defense quite seriously and all our dreams of critical infrastructure can be forgotten. What next, increase the number of missiles in each wave, launch decoys, thereby consuming the supply of air defense missiles, or still strike from the north and cut off the border Time is again against us. Decisions are needed that will turn the tide of the war. Since there is a war going on now, nothing will be solved, it will only complicate the military operations themselves and the situation of the country as a whole.

    If anything, the Italian Pz2000 did arrive - they promised from the summer of 22, they lit up just now. Not officially released.

    Initially promised 6 pieces. If so many were transferred, then there will be 8 from the Netherlands, 14 from Germany and 6 from Italy = 28 cars.

    For too long nothing has been heard about the "red brigades" in Italy. Well, the mokron was offended that they didn’t speak to him on the phone, but what problems does Italy have with the Russian Federation? The complex, it's a pity, is good, it's bad if they start using the scumbags.

    If Putin had eggs, all these air defense supplies could have been stopped a long time ago. To do this, you just need to deploy more nuclear weapons in relation to Europe, install them on ships and change the nuclear doctrine. But the Europeans do not feel threatened, and therefore they calmly give up their air defense and missile defense. Half a million Russians and Ukrainians have already suffered in this conflict. The war is going on in the fraternal Donbass. How long does Putin plan to be nice to Europe? Maybe it's time to stop trading? A European, thanks to trade with Russia, gets the resources to produce weapons to kill Russians, and a Russian cannot kill a European in return. And why do we need it? For 20 years, Putin was the number one choice, but at 24 I will vote for the one who promises to make the West pay hard for the hybrid war and for the past wars unleashed against Russia.

    In December, they made a decision and are now sending. Yep, cheers. It is impossible to train personnel for such equipment in a month. This means that all decisions were made at least six months ago, if not at the very beginning of the conflict.
