Britain, Denmark contribute more money and weapons to Ukraine

COPENHAGEN, 12 August 2022, (TON): Britain and Denmark will provide more financial and military aid to Ukraine, they said on Thursday as European defense ministers met in Copenhagen to discuss long-term support for the country’s defense against Russia’s invasion.

Britain, which has already donated advanced weapons systems to Ukraine and given thousands of its troops military training, said “it would send more multiple-launch rocket systems.”

It would also donate a significant number of precision guided M31A1 missiles that can strike targets up to 80km away.

UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said “this latest tranche of military support will enable the armed forces of Ukraine to continue to defend against Russian aggression and the indiscriminate use of long-range artillery.”
