British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he would give Ukraine even more tanks, armored vehicles, as well as new anti-ship missiles.
According to him, Ukraine will also receive modern drones and radars to determine “where the artillery is aimed at Ukrainian cities.”
He said this during his online speech in the Verkhovna Rada.
Johnson recalled that in January, Britain had already transferred NLAW anti-tank missiles to Ukraine, which now “have become very popular.”
“We are strengthening and accelerating this assistance by working with more than a dozen countries that also supply weapons to your state. We are sending thousands of tanks and armored vehicles,” says Johnson.
The British Prime Minister said that in the coming weeks, London will transfer anti-ship missiles and armored vehicles to Ukraine in order to “evacuate people from the occupied territories and protect those who should protect critical infrastructure.” In addition, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will receive radars to determine “where the artillery is located, aiming at Ukrainian cities.”
Britain has committed another £300m ($377m) to help Ukraine, Johnson said.
Johnson stressed that Britain, together with other allies, plans to help Ukraine gain a foothold so that no one else will ever dare to encroach on it.
“Here in the UK, Ukrainian flags are everywhere – on the spiers of churches, in the windows of our shops, on our streets. There are many reasons why your country makes such a sensation among the British. There is no doubt who is right in this situation. You have risen up against murderous aggression Putin. This is democracy against tyranny, this is will against oppression, this is right against lawlessness, this is good against evil,” Johnson said.
He stressed that Britain would do everything possible for Ukraine to become an independent, sovereign state again.
“Ukraine must win. Ukraine will definitely win. When we see the heroism of the Ukrainians, their courage and the personal courage of your guide Volodymyr Zelensky, we know that Ukraine will win. And we will do everything we can and everything we need to Ukraine has risen again as an independent, sovereign country,” Johnson said.
