Britain pledges more military aid to Ukraine

Britain pledges more military aid to Ukraine

British Prime Minister Liz Truss has pledged at least £2.3 billion in military aid to Ukraine over the next year ahead of her speech to the UN General Assembly. The new head of government announced on Tuesday that British support would remain at least as high as this year. According to the government in London, the exact details “must be determined based on the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine”. Among other things, it includes several rocket launchers.

“My message to the people of Ukraine is that the UK will support you every step of the way. Your security is our security,” Truss said. Ukraine’s successes in recent weeks have been encouraging. Time and again, these brave people have stood up to the skeptics and shown what is possible by giving them the military, economic and political support they need.

Britain says it has given Ukraine more than 200,000 pieces of equipment, including hundreds of missiles, 5 anti-aircraft systems, 120 armored vehicles and night vision goggles. Also, a total of 27,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been trained since 2015.
