Norway approves shipment of new batch of weapons to Kiev

Oslo, Apr 20 (Prensa Latina) The Norwegian Ministry of Defense announced today the supply of a new shipment of weapons to the Ukrainian forces, involved in the war conflict in the east of that country, official sources informed in this capital.

The government approved the decision to send Mistral missiles, Bjorn Arild Gram, said in a statement Norwegian Minister of Defense since the April 12, who replaced Odd Roger Enoksen, forced to resign because of an alleged sex scandal.

Norway, a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), recently announced its decision to send 4,000 anti-tank shells and other supplies to the Ukrainian government.

On this occasion, the monarchical state will deliver 100 Mistral anti-aircraft missiles, a weapon system designed in the 1970s which the Norwegian army is planning to decommission.

For its part, the Norwegian Ministry of Defense said that these missiles are still effective and could be useful to Ukraine, although it admitted that its Armed Forces will soon withdraw them from their arsenals.

On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a special military operation in response to the request of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, in the face of increased attacks by Kiev.

Putin stressed that Moscow is not planning to occupy Ukraine and the aim of the operations is to demilitarize and denazify that country.
