Lecornu recalled that Paris had previously announced the supply of about 40 SCALP missiles to the Ukrainian army.

The minister added that in addition to missiles, France will also supply Ukraine with AASM aerial bombs.

“We will deliver about 50 pieces per month throughout 2024, starting in January,” RIA Novosti quotes him.

Head Sebastian Lecornu previously announced that the Ukrainian authorities had acquired six more CAESAR howitzers.

Paris aims to produce 78 howitzers this year and wants the allies to take part in this, he noted.
