UK to provide another 1 billion pounds of military support to Ukraine


Britain will provide an additional $1.2 billion in military aid to Ukraine, the British government said on Wednesday, as NATO called Russia the biggest "direct threat" to Western security.

Funding from the UK will be provided to enhance Ukraine's defense capabilities, including air defense systems, unmanned aerial vehicles, new electronic warfare equipment, and thousands of equipment for Ukraine's military.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in a statement: "Britain's weapons, equipment, and training are changing Ukraine's defense against this attack. And we will stand fully with the people of Ukraine so that Putin's Ukraine I can ensure failure. "

The latest funding comes after the UK said in May that it would provide an additional $1.3 billion in defense aid to Ukraine, bringing the total UK military and economic aid to $3.8 billion this year.

Following Johnson's offer to launch a major operation with the capacity to train 10,000 troops every 120 days, Ukrainian troops have also begun training in Britain.

At the NATO summit in the wake of the Russian attack, which Moscow says is a "special military operation" to rid Ukraine of dangerous nationalists, NATO agreed on a plan to modernize Kyiv's armed forces. He said he stood by the Ukrainians' "brave defense of their country".

Ukraine needs $5 billion a month to defend and protect itself, according to a statement from Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky.
