Italy will not make any decisions on the supply of military aid to Ukraine until February, Italian newspaper La Repubblica reported on Jan. 9.

"The moment of truth, as it is now leaking from executive sources, is scheduled for the end of January, when the government will decide which and how many vehicles to send to Ukrainians," the newspaper writes.

This concerns the possible shipment of SAMP-T anti-aircraft missile systems and Aspide guided missiles.

The newspaper writes that Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and Defense Minister Guido Crosetto have decided to adhere to their obligations to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, but the lack of weapons is very pressing: two missile batteries have already been sent to Kuwait and Slovakia.
