The UK will also supply Kiev with anti-tank missiles after Russia has mobilized 100,000 soldiers
Britain is providing Ukraine with short-range anti-tank missiles for self-defense after Russia massed some 100,000 troops on its border. London Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said, during a hearing in ParliamentThat even a small contingent of British troops would be sent to Ukraine to provide training. Wallace made it clear there A legitimate and real cause for concern He could use Russian forces to invade. Russia denies any plans to invade and accuses the West of aggression.
Dozens of British soldiers have been in Ukraine since 2015 to help train the UK’s army
He also pledged to rebuild Ukraine’s navy following the Russian invasion of Crimea in 2014. But Wallace said the UK would provide additional security assistance in light of Russia’s growing threat behaviour.
Yesterday, the first batch of small anti-armor weapons was sent, although the Minister of Defense did not specify their type. He told lawmakers that Ukraine has every right to defend its borders and that this new aid package enhances its ability to do so. Let me be clear: This support is clearly short-range defensive weapons. They are not strategic weapons and do not pose a threat to Russia; It should be used for self-defense. Wallace said that a package of international sanctions was ready to be launched in the event of any act by Russia to destabilize Ukraine. The defense minister said any invasion would be seen as an occupation that could lead to heavy loss of life on all sides.
