Donetsk, Jan 21 – DAN. NATO countries have supplied Ukraine with more than 560 tons of weapons, including 2,000 NLAW anti-tank missile systems, the deputy chief-of-staff of the Republican People's Militia Eduard Basurin said citing intelligence reports.
"NATO has recently been flooding Ukraine with various weapons and equipment. Just in the past couple of days nine C-17 aircrafts shipped nearly 2,000 NLAW anti-tank missile systems from Britain," he said.
The main battle tank and light anti-tank weapon is shipped to the 25th and 95th assault groups of the Ukrainian armed forces airborne brigades and nationalistic squads tasked with occupying Donbass townships.
Military instructors have already trained Ukrainian troops to use the system; exercises were organized on the premises of the 199th training centre in Zhitomir Region.
The Main Battle Tank and Light Anti-tank Weapon (MBT LAW), also known as the NLAW, is a joint British and Swedish short-range fire-and-forget anti-tank missile system.
Designed for use by infantry, the MBT LAW is shoulder fired and disposable, firing once before being disposed of. *ot
