The United States turned to Italy with an important demand because of Ukraine.

The United States is putting pressure on Italy in the supply of weapons to Ukraine.


U.S. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, in a conversation with Italian Prime Minister Meloni’s aide Francesco Talo, pressured Rome to supply Ukraine with military air defense assets as soon as possible.

It is worth noting that it was about the SAMP-T anti-aircraft missile systems. If Germany, the US and France have already announced the shipment of armored vehicles, then Italy has not yet adopted a new, sixth, decree on the next supply of weapons to Kyiv.

“Italy has at its disposal five active SAMP-T air defense batteries, as well as one training battery, which lacks a vehicle with launchers,” experts say.

There is a slowdown in the transfer of Italian equipment to Kyiv.
