Despite this past week which has seen US officials echo growing concerns over Moscow’s ratcheting nuclear rhetoric – which Ukraine too has said it is taking seriously – Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is now boasting his country has received a new, advanced US missile system.
He confirmed in a fresh interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile Systems (NASAMS) has been long sought after by Kyiv, but previously in the war repeatedly denied:
Zelensky thanked the U.S. for the system as well as the High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems it’s received, but added that his troops “absolutely need the United States to show leadership and give Ukraine” additional air defense systems it has requested.
