US Readies Longer Range Missile Defense System For Ukraine As G7 Hikes Sanctions

• Zero Hedge - Tyler Durden

While President Joe Biden is in attendance at the G7 summit in southern Germany at the start of his week, the administration is planning to soon announce the next major transfer of weapons to Ukraine, but this time an advanced, medium-to-long range surface-to-air missile defense system.

The system being readied would put Ukraine's strike capability into deeper territory far behind Russian lines. According to CNN, "Ukrainian officials have asked for the missile defense system, known as a NASAMS system, given the weapons can hit targets more than 100 miles away, though the Ukrainian forces will likely need to be trained on the systems, a source said."
