THE United Kingdom has supplied Ukraine with several “Storm Shadow cruise missiles” as Kyiv prepares for its much-anticipated counteroffensive.

The powerful missiles, which are typically fired from the air, can travel approximately 155 miles and will be “a real game changer from a range perspective,” CNN reports.
