UK Announces “Largest Ever” Military Aid Package For Ukraine, As US Promise More

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The United Kingdom has announced its “largest ever” military aid package for Ukraine. This new shipment will include more long-range missiles, dozens of boats, and hundreds of armored vehicles. This comes as the Biden administration assures Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky that he will get more from the United States as well.

The package coming from the UK is valued at £500 million ($617 million) and will include more than 400 vehicles, 60 boats, and an undisclosed number of long-range Storm Shadow missiles, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s office said in a statement, calling it the largest-ever provision of vital munitions.”

“Defending Ukraine against Russia’s brutal ambitions is vital for our security and for all of Europe,” Sunak claimed. “If Putin is allowed to succeed in this war of aggression, he will not stop at the Polish border.”

“Today’s package will help ensure Ukraine has what they need to take the fight to Russia,” Sunak added according to a report by RT. “The United Kingdom will always play its part at the forefront of European security, defending our national interest and standing by our NATO allies.”

The announcement comes as the US is expected to approve a $61 billion military and aid package for Kiev.

The US House of Representatives approved a long-stalled emergency spending bill that includes $61 billion in additional Ukraine aid. US ruler Joe Biden pledged on Monday to quickly ramp up weapons shipments to Kiev once the spending legislation is approved by the Senate, which could happen as soon as Tuesday.

The US ran out of military funding after using up $113 billion in congressionally approved aid packages. Disruptions in support from Washington, by far Kyiv’s biggest benefactor, led to ammunition shortages that were blamed for battlefield setbacks in recent months. Ukraine’s ruling class continues to blame Western rulers for not giving them enough in the war with Russia.

The new US aid will help Ukraine “maintain financial stability, build back critical infrastructure following Russian attacks, and support reform as Ukraine moves forward on the path of Euro-Atlantic integration,” the White House said. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken raised eyebrows earlier this month, when he emphatically told reporters at a NATO briefing that Ukraine “will become a member” of the Western military bloc. -RT
