Ukraine allies promise more air-defence supplies as Russia intensifies airstrikes

Correspondent

The UK has promised to send hundreds of anti-aircraft rockets to Ukraine, capable of shooting down cruise missiles – as Russian airstrikes intensify.

Other Nato allies, including the United States, France and Germany, will also donate air-defence weaponry.

It comes as Russian forces targeted the southern city of Mykolaiv and the Kyiv region overnight.
