Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera reported that SAMP/T delivery preparations were underway. The missile is a joint production of French and Italian MBDA and Thales under Eurosam. Italy probably will not wait for France's decision as the maker of this weapon system.


Italy believes there will be no problems with France as this will be positive for Ukraine, and France itself is active in providing assistance to Kyiv. Since Russia's invasion of Ukraine began, Rome has sent five packages of military aid to Kyiv.

Italian Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani stated that the Italian government had disbursed aid worth 1 billion euros to help Ukraine. “In collaboration with France, we are finalising the delivery of the SAMP/T, and in any case, there are other actions on which we are working confidentially”
