British strike may hinder missile shipment to Ukraine

London, Jul 15 (Prensa Latina) A strike by employees of a secret British warehouse of Storm Shadow and Brimstone missiles could hinder the shipment of these weapons to Ukraine, according to the Mirror newspaper.

Half a hundred workers at a Scottish stockpile of these rockets organized a strike to call for better wages and intend to repeat the protest coming Monday.

The Storm Shadow rockets, with a range of up to 650 kms, have been used many times to attack Russian-controlled cities in the rebel zone of Donbass since the beginning of the conflict on February 24, 2022.

President Vladimir Putin explained back then that a special war operation by the Russian armed forces was aimed at protecting the Donbass population, as well as demilitarizing and denazifying Ukraine.

Storm Shadow and Brimstone rockets, an anti-tank and anti-personnel projectile with a range of 12 kilometers, as well as weapons for British submarines located at the naval bases at Faslane, also in Scotland, are sent from the aforementioned warehouse in Scotland.

The UK tops the list of European countries involved in the rearmament of Ukraine, to which it has sent weapons worth over $20 billion since the beginning of the confrontation.
