Britain will send scores of artillery guns and more than 1,600 anti-tank weapons to Ukraine in the latest supply of western arms to help bolster its defence against Russia, the UK defence secretary, Ben Wallace, said on Thursday, according to The Guardian.

"Together with our international partners, we will ensure Ukraine has the tools to defend their country from Putin's illegal invasion," Wallace said in a statement.

Wallace said Britain would also provide counter-battery radar systems, hundreds of drones and more than 50,000 rounds of ammunition.

The commitment comes after the outgoing prime minister, Boris Johnson, last month promised a further £1bn of military support to the country.
