The UK will spend £245 million ($310 million – ed.) over the course of the year to buy and strengthen supply chains to produce artillery ammunition for Ukraine. The British government announced this on Saturday, February 24.

It noted that the funding announcement “comes exactly two years after Putin launched his illegal all-out invasion of Ukraine – at the same time, artillery proved its decisive role in Ukraine’s military victories, continuing to fill the Russian forces and prevent them from making significant gains”.

In addition, Defense Minister Grant Shapps confirmed the delivery of an additional 200 Brimstone anti-tank missiles to the Ukrainian Armed Forces. As a result, the total number of Brimstone missiles supplied to Ukraine exceeded 1,300 units.

“In addition to the artillery and missiles funding package, a new series of multi-million pound contracts have been signed between the MoD procurement department, Defense Equipment & Support (DE&S) and UK-based Cook Defense Systems for the supply of hundreds of replacement tracks and armored vehicles,” it said. in the statement.

It was indicated that this would allow the Ukrainian Armed Forces to return damaged equipment. The contracts include both British funding and funds from the International Fund for Ukraine.

We remind you that in January, Great Britain became the first country to enter into a final agreement with Ukraine in the field of security. The document formalizes the support London has provided and will continue to provide to Kyiv, including intelligence sharing, cybersecurity, medical and military training, and defense-industry cooperation.
