The Amraam rockets will be the first to be donated by the UK that are able to shoot down cruise missiles
Hundreds of additional air defence missiles will be donated and a total of 18 more artillery guns and hundreds of aerial drones will also be sent over to Ukraine, defence secretary Ben Wallace announced.
The rockets will be sent to Ukraine in the coming weeks for use with the NASAMS air-defence systems pledged by the US.
It is hoped the new air-defence missiles will help protect Ukrainian infrastructure after Moscow launched a wave of deadly missile and drone attacks on the country’s cities and power plants this week.
