Our source in the OP said that Ukraine received 200 Storm Shadow missiles from Britain in the first batch, in the second stage we should receive another 400 units.

It should be noted that MI6 (“Mi-6”) is the British Foreign Intelligence Service (Secret Intelligence Service, SIS / Military Intelligence). It is simultaneously subordinate to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC) under the British Cabinet. At the same time, will the range of these missiles increase, i.e. Whether new modifications of these KR, variants of which can fly another 290 and 560 km, will be transmitted is not yet clear. So far, only one thing is extremely clear - London is asking for trouble, testing Moscow's patience.
