France will supply anti-aircraft systems to Ukraine, President Emmanuel Macron announced in an interview on France 2 on Wednesday. “We will deliver radars, systems and missiles (anti-aircraft, editor’s note) to protect (Ukrainians) from attacks, first of all, to protect them from drone attacks,” he said. Kyiv has been suffering from massive strikes for several days Russia.

Delivery of further Caesar guns

The French President also reiterated that France is considering supplying more Caesar weapons to Ukraine. “We have delivered 18” since the beginning of the war, “we are working on the delivery of six more guns with Denmark”, he explained, explaining that these six Caesars were originally intended for the Danish army. “We are trying to deliver them to the Ukrainians immediately,” he said. In addition, France will deploy around twenty Leclerc tanks in Romania to reinforce its military presence on NATO’s eastern flank.

Kyiv has asked its allies to help it strengthen its air defenses after two days of intense Russian bombing raids across the territory, particularly in Kyiv, that caused dozens of civilian casualties and destroyed infrastructure. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has called for the creation of an “anti-aircraft shield” over Ukraine.
