British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace made a statement in Parliament on January 17.
According to him, on Today, there are allegedly tens of thousands of Russian servicemen near the border with Ukraine. “Their deployment is not routine, and they are equipped with tanks, armored fighting vehicles, rocket artillery and short-range ballistic missiles,” the representative of the kingdom believes.
“Today, I can confirm to the House of Commons that in light of increasingly Russia's threatening behavior and in addition to our ongoing support, the UK is providing a new security assistance package to boost Ukraine's defense capabilities,” Wallace said.
In this regard, Britain will supply Ukraine with light, anti-tank, defensive weapons systems. A small number of British personnel will also conduct initial training over a short period of time as part of Operation ORBITAL
“The weapons supplied are purely defensive, non-strategic and do not pose a threat to Russia,” Wallace assured.
