How to Strengthen Ukraine’s Air Defence against Russian Strikes? | To the Point

How to strenghten Ukraine’s air defense against Russian strikes? | To the Point

Exposed and exhausted: things are getting worse on Ukraine’s eastern front as Russian troops advance and airstrikes pummel cities— especially Ukraine’s second-biggest, Kharkiv. Air campaigns are knocking out Ukrainian energy facilities, and Ukraine’s top military commander is warning the situation in the east has “deteriorated significantly”. Two hours north of Kyiv in Chernihiv, the death toll rises again from Russian missiles. Ukraine is calling for more help from the West – more aid from the United States, and better protection. As Russia intensifies its airstrikes campaign, we’re asking: How to strengthen Ukraine’s air defenses?
