Air defense systems are being sent to Ukraine -CNN

The United States and its NATO allies have sent air defense systems to Ukraine.

CNN reported, citing an unnamed senior U.S. official.

According to a senior U.S. official, these additional systems include the Soviet-era SA-8, SA-10, SA-12 and SA-14 mobile air defense systems.

The weapons are already known to the Armed Forces of Ukraine and do not require a long period to master.

According to the NATO codification system, the following complexes correspond to the mentioned names:

• SA-8 – 9K33 Osa
• SA-10 – S-300
• SA-12 – S-300W
• SA-14 – 9K34 Strela-3

However, there is a contradiction in the CNN report. After all, the authors of the news note that the provided systems have “these systems have a lower altitude range than the S-300 system, which Ukraine has requested.” There may be confusion in the report regarding the names of the MANPADS.

The systems have been sourced from NATO partner nations and are “on the way”, according to this senior U.S. official.
