Ukraine decided to fend off Russian ships with NATO anti-ship missiles NSM - though they are useless

NATO provided Ukraine with its anti-ship missiles to combat Russian ships.

NATO member states have decided to provide Ukraine with Norwegian anti-ship missiles to be installed on military boats. We are talking about NSM missiles, which have rather large capabilities to destroy ships, moreover, it is noteworthy that the armament of the Ukrainian Navy is observed against the background of increasing NATO pressure on Russia in the Black Sea region.

“According to Dumskaya, the Commander-in-Chief of the Naval Forces of Ukraine gave preliminary consent to equip boats with Norwegian Naval Strike Missile (NSM) anti-ship missiles instead of the Neptune anti-ship missiles offered by Ukraine. In addition, Neizhpapa expressed a desire to strengthen the artillery armament of the boats by installing larger caliber guns, despite the change in the cost of building and centering the boats. Also, the Ukrainian side expressed a desire to build not eight boats, as previously planned, but six. Instead of two more, in the opinion of the commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian Navy, two minesweepers should be built "- сообщает information publication "Military Review".

On the other hand, experts pay attention to the fact that the Ukrainian boats, even being armed with Norwegian anti-ship missiles, do not represent a real threat to the Russian fleet, which, by the way, applies to absolutely all countries of the Black Sea region, however, the fact that Kiev decided not to use their anti-ship missiles, probably indicates that they simply cannot prove themselves.
