France is already sending Ukraine long-range missiles - Defense One

In a recent development, it has been reported that France has delivered a number of SCALP long-range cruise missiles to Ukraine. This delivery follows the announcement made by President Emmanuel Macron regarding the supplies to support Ukraine’s defense capabilities.

The exact number of SCALP missiles sent to Ukraine has not been disclosed by the official source. The SCALP missile, known as the “Storm Shadow” in UK forces, is an air-launched British-French missile and is considered the longest-range Western weapon in Ukraine’s arsenal.

This delivery of SCALP missiles underscores France’s commitment to bolstering Ukraine’s defense capabilities in the face of ongoing security challenges. By providing advanced weaponry, France aims to support Ukraine’s efforts to maintain its sovereignty and protect its territorial integrity.

The delivery of these long-range cruise missiles will likely enhance Ukraine’s defensive capabilities and provide a deterrent against potential threats. However, it is essential for all parties involved to prioritize dialogue and diplomatic efforts to find a peaceful resolution to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

As the situation continues to evolve, it is crucial for international actors to work together to promote stability and de-escalation in the region. The delivery of SCALP missiles serves as a reminder of the complex dynamics at play and the need for concerted efforts to achieve a lasting and peaceful resolution.

Let us hope that diplomatic initiatives, coupled with the necessary defensive measures, can contribute to the restoration of peace and stability in Ukraine.
