Ukraine asks Italy for SAMP-T air defense systems – Zelensky

October 27, 2022


Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said he expects to continue close relations with Italy and hopes Ukraine will be supplied with air defense systems, such as SAMP-T.

He said this in an interview with Italy’s Corriere della Sera, Ukrinform reports.

“Air defense systems. This is a high priority for us today. You know why. Because we want our people to come back from abroad so that their children could go to school, university, etc. But without security, without air defense systems, we can’t do it. There are very few countries that produce air defense systems – not only those that have them, but those that produce them. Italy produces SAMP-T systems together with France and Germany. And we need them,” Zelensky said.
