The United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense announced today that it will supply 80 km of rocket launchers to Ukraine to counter Russian aggression, following the example of the United States.
These M270 MLRS systems will “significantly increase the capability of the Ukrainian military,” the ministry said. The decision was made “in close coordination” with Washington, which last week announced the delivery of 80 km of Himalayan equipment, including multiple rocket launchers mounted on light armored vehicles.
The Ukrainians have been demanding rocket launchers for some time, to attack Russian positions while placing their batteries away from the front. However, the American president, Joe BidenIn order to prevent the United States from being seen as an ally, it withdrew from providing Ukraine with long-range rocket launch systems that could reach Russia.
“Ukraine can win if it retains the support of the international community,” said Ben Wallace, British Secretary of Defense. “Russia’s strategy is changing, and so is our support.” .
The UK’s military support for Ukraine is currently $ 937 million.
