According to the "Daily Mail" report on April 19, the British government is preparing to provide Ukraine with the "Stormer" missile launcher. The missile launcher, which weighs 13 tons, will be transported to Ukraine by transport aircraft in the next few days.

"Storm" can take three people, and can launch 17 "Star" air defense missiles. The missile travels at more than three times the speed of sound and is suitable for shooting down low-flying jets. British Defence Secretary Wallace revealed in March that the United Kingdom will send the "Star" air defense missiles to Ukraine.

Richard Kemp, the former commander of Britain's forces in Afghanistan, said Ukraine's combat capability would be improved, but the news would further anger Moscow.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in an interview with Russia Today TV on the 18th that Russia's actions in Ukraine are aimed at eliminating threats to itself and stopping all attempts to supply Ukraine with weapons. Russia will never allow the West to continue sending weapons to Ukraine, and the Russian military will target any suspicious items in Ukraine.
