Italian Defense Minister Guido Crozetto on Tuesday announced the preparation of another package of military aid to Ukraine.
Crozetto discussed the issue of military aid to Ukraine during hearings in the parliamentary committee on issues of control over special services. At the same time, the content of his speech - as well as what kind of weapons Kyiv will receive from Rome - is classified.
The publication Il Messaggero wrote the day before that the new package of military aid to Ukraine - already the seventh - may include the SAMP/T surface-based anti-aircraft missile system and other air defense systems.
It will be recalled that the SAMP/T complex was included in the last, sixth package of Italian military aid to Ukraine, together with additional air defense systems, in addition to the SAMP/T-MAMBA complexes, which it plans to hand over together with France.
As reported, in March Italy trained 20 Ukrainian servicemen in the use of SAMP/T at the Santa Barbara base in Sabaudia, in the Latina province south of Rome.
