Quote by Zelenskyy: “We have a powerful defence package from the United Kingdom. We have agreed on the supply of a significant number of armoured vehicles, long-range weapons, and we have also agreed to start training Ukrainian pilots.
I believe that this is our clear signal, for both Ukraine and the United Kingdom, that together we are not just passing through, but will walk all the way to our common victory.”
Details: UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak emphasised that the United Kingdom is accelerating the supply of various types of weapons to Ukraine.
“In particular, when we talk about Challenger tanks, they are needed next month already to defend Ukraine,” said Sunak.
Background: President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak have signed the UK–Ukraine Declaration of Unity (London Declaration) during Zelenskyy’s visit to the UK on Wednesday, 8 February. The declaration aims to deepen cooperation between Kyiv and London.
So, the UK is once again in the cutting edge of military aid for Ukraine. Maybe this will wake up the frightened old guy in the WH? Well, before the summer?
Just as the US agreeing to supply tanks gave Germany courage, let’s hope this give the US courage.
I wonder what the long range weapons are?
They will keep the Moskali guessing. Well done.
Likely to be Storm Shadow: Anglo-French ASM. Range 350 miles, warhead 450kg.

He was throwing his shoulders out of joint last night as he was trying to pat himself on the back. Ukraine badly needs both sides’ support but when you take credit for stuff yourself it sounds partisan. All the credit should go to the men and women in uniform in Ukraine.
