The British military continue, day and night, to supply #Ukraine with weapons with which to defend itself against invading Russian forces. The supply flights started before the invasion and have not stopped since, however they now land in Poland near the Ukrainian border.

The UK recently announced that it would supply “scores of artillery guns, hundreds of drones” plus 50,000 rounds and more anti-tank weapons to Ukraine in the coming weeks.

“The delivery of the new equipment will significantly step up the UK’s support as the country fights to repel Russia’s brutal and unjustified invasion.”

More than 20 M109 155mm self-propelled guns and 36 L119 105mm artillery guns will soon arrive from the UK, Defence Secretary Ben Wallace announced in an update to Parliament today. Counter-battery radar systems and more than 50,000 rounds of ammunition for Ukraine’s existing Soviet-era artillery will also follow, he added.

“This equipment will bolster the Armed Forces of Ukraine’s ability to defend itself against Russia’s indiscriminate use of artillery. The UK will also send more than 1,600 more anti-tank weapons in the coming weeks, along with drones, including hundreds of loitering aerial munitions.”

So far 6,900 NLAW, Javelin, Brimstone and other anti-tank weapons, as well as 16,000 artillery rounds, six Stormer vehicles fitted with Starstreak anti-air missile launchers and hundreds of missiles have been sent to Ukraine.

The UK has also supplied maritime Brimstone missiles, multiple launch rocket systems, 120 armoured fighting vehicles and large quantities of non-lethal aid including more than 82,000 helmets, 8,450 sets of body armour and over 5,000 night vision devices, say the MoD.

Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said:

“The scale and range of equipment we are providing demonstrates the strength of our resolve. Together with our international partners, we will ensure Ukraine has the tools to defend their country from Putin’s illegal invasion.”

It comes after the UK launched a major training operation for Ukrainian forces, with the potential to train up to 10,000 soldiers every three months.

  1. “it uses the ATACMS surface-to-surface missile [SSM]: then it strikes at a distance of 165 to 300 km. If used by Lockheed Martin Precision Strike Missile [PsM] M270 MLRS strikes up to 499 km.”

    FFS give them that one.

    • By the way Sir Scradgel I’m continuing my relentless daily emails and calls to DeSantis and his advisors demanding he grow a pair of balls and answer my simple question…What is your position on Ukraine? I’ve been known to camp out people’s offices when they tried to avoid me. I’m getting ready for Tallahassee. I’m a pissed off New Yorker with money so screw him.

  2. God bless the UK and the Brits. Their compassion of taking care of our refugees and their unending desire to destroy Putin and having shared values with our citizens is wonderful. Simply wonderful! God bless them all.

    • The good news continues: Penny Mordaunt; Liz Truss’s rival, has now thrown her weight behind Liz. It means Liz will be a very strong position to take the top job.
      The most anti-putler of the top Tories is now in pole position.
      The tiny nazi rat will not like it at all. He will soon be plotting for Boris to come back!
