The US government will send eight NASAMS air defense systems to Ukraine, with two of them arriving in the near future, US Senior Defense Official said in a statement.

“The United States has already provided [Ukraine – UT] 1,400 Stingers, which is short range air defense, and our allies and partners have also provided considerable numbers of short range air defense systems. The U.S. have also committed eight NASAMS and associated munitions, and two of those will be in Ukraine in the very near future, with six more to be provided later,” he said.

We also have committed to a suite of counter-unmanned aerial systems, including the VAMPIRE system and other radar systems, since we know that the UAS threat is also a serious threat right now, he added.
