Britain’s support for Ukraine is changing as Russian tactics evolve.
The UK will provide Ukraine with M270 multiple launch rocket systems that can hit targets up to 80km away.
This was stated by Secretary of Defense Ben Wallace, writes Reuters .
Wallace said Britain’s support for Ukraine is changing as Russian tactics evolve.
“These high-performance multiple launch rocket systems will enable our Ukrainian friends to better defend themselves against the brutal use of long-range artillery that Putin’s forces have used indiscriminately to destroy cities,” the minister said.
The provision of the M270 systems is agreed with the United States, as they are manufactured by an American company and formal permission from Washington is required for transfer to a third party.
Britain has said Ukrainian troops will be trained to use the new launchers in Britain, after previously announcing they would be training Ukrainian personnel to use armored vehicles.
Recall, earlier it was reported that Ukrainian artillerymen began exercises on the use of HIMARS and M270 .
