UK to provide Ukraine with 125 anti-aircraft guns

Britain has announced a new 50-million-pound package of military aid to Ukraine, the British Foreign Office reported on Twitter.

Ukrainian military will receive 125 anti-aircraft guns and devices to counter kamikaze drones.

“The £50 million package of defence aid comprises 125 anti-aircraft guns and technology to counter deadly Iranian-supplied drones, including dozens of radars and anti-drone electronic warfare capability,” the message states.

On 12 December, Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said that the UK may reconsider refusing to supply Ukraine with longer-range weapons if Russia continues to shoot at civilian infrastructure.

On 9 December, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak promised to provide Kyiv with various air defence equipment, including missiles, in the coming weeks.
