Paris is exploring the possibility of sending long-range Scalp guided missiles to Ukraine. This is reported by the French newspaper Le Monde, citing a source in the Elysee Palace.
“We are considering all options, but at the moment there is no talk of this,” the source said. It is noted that the French government considered the possibility of such supplies after the UK promised to send Storm Shadow cruise missiles to Ukraine, which are analogous to Scalp. On May 11, British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace confirmed the shipment of Storm Shadow long-range cruise missiles to Ukraine. “Today I can confirm that the UK is transferring Storm Shadow missiles to Ukraine,” he said.
