Great Britain will send another batch of military aid to Ukraine worth $375 million (£300 million), Reuters reports, citing a message from the Office of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson.
The package will include electronic warfare equipment, night vision devices, satellite navigation jamming tools, heavy drones and an anti-battery radar system.
In addition, the UK will donate more than 10 armored vehicles to Kyiv to ensure the safety of civilian officials.
According to preliminary data, Johnson is going to announce new arms deliveries to Kyiv during a speech before the Ukrainian parliament on May 3.
Russia has been conducting a military special operation in Ukraine since February 24. Western countries, including the United States and Great Britain, began to supply weapons to Kyiv. In early April, Johnson announced that his country was going to transfer weapons worth £ 100 million to Ukraine. This included Starstreak multi-purpose missiles, 120 armored vehicles and anti-ship systems. The prime minister called the supply of arms the best response of the world community to the events in Ukraine. At the same time, he admitted that the conflict could end only at the end of 2023, and Russia could win it.
Moscow criticizes Western states for supplying Ukraine with weapons. In particular, State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin called those who supply weapons to Kyiv war criminals. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at the end of April called on the United States and NATO to stop supplying weapons and ammunition to Ukraine to resolve the crisis. The Russian Foreign Ministry has said more than once that they consider weapons-carrying vehicles a legitimate military target.
