The UK will provide Ukraine with more launch rocket systems that can hit targets up to 80 kilometers away, British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said.
According to him, the supply of weapons will help Ukraine to defend itself against Russian artillery.
“This new phase of military support will allow the Ukrainian Armed Forces to continue to defend themselves against the Russian threat and to use long-range missiles indiscriminately,” Wallace told Reuters.
“Our continued support sends a very clear message: Britain and the international community are against this illegal war and will come together to provide military assistance to Ukraine to help it. to avoid Putin’s attack,” added the British minister.
The day before, in a statement by the BBC, Ben Wallace, while at the international conference on aid to Ukraine in Copenhagen, London confirmed that three more missile defense systems will be transferred to Ukraine in addition to the three in Kyiv. , and a “large” number of arrows for them.

Russia launched a major offensive against Ukraine on February 24, but failed to achieve its goals, especially the capture of Kyiv, due to the strong resistance of the Ukrainians.
On April 22, Russia announced new plans for the “second phase” of the “special operation” in Ukraine (as the entire attack is called there). The Russian military has expressed its desire to establish full control over Donbass and southern Ukraine so that Crimea can add a land route and access to Transnistria.
However, according to Western intelligence, Russia’s successes in the Donbass have been limited and the Russian military has suffered heavy losses due to the Ukrainian resistance.
