Estonia denied asking Israel for its authorization to transfer one Blue Spear (5G SSM) land-to-sea missile system to Ukraine.

Israel’s Defense Ministry on Saturday denied a false report that it had agreed to Estonia’s request to equip Ukraine with the Blue Spear (5G SSM) land-to-sea missile system.

Ukrainian journalist Rostyslav Demchuk reported on Friday that Estonia, which purchased an unspecified number of Blue Spear systems from its manufacturer Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) in October 2021, asked Israel for its authorization to transfer one of the systems to Ukraine’s Armed Forces, currently defending Ukraine against the Russian invasion.

Demchuk claimed that Israel complied with the Baltic nation’s request.

The Blue Spear missile system is one of the most advanced anti-ship missile systems in the world, allowing for launching from land-based platforms with flight at high subsonic speed.
