Britain sends long-range missiles to Ukraine after Russia attacks Kyiv
Britain is sending its first long-range missiles to Ukraine after Russia hit the outskirts of Kyiv for the first time since April.
Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said Britain would send an unspecified number of M270 launchers capable of launching precision-guided missiles up to 50 miles – a longer range than any missile technology currently deployed in the war.
“The UK stands with Ukraine in this fight and is taking a leading role in providing its heroic troops with the vital weapons they need to defend their country from an unprovoked invasion,” Wallace said in a statement Ministry of Defense (MoD).
“If the international community continues to support it, I believe Ukraine can win.
“As Russia’s tactics change, so must our support for Ukraine. These high-performance, multiple-launch missile systems will allow our Ukrainian friends to better protect themselves against the brutal use of long-range artillery that (Vladimir) Putin’s forces have deployed indiscriminately to level cities.”
Ukrainian troops are being trained in Britain to use the equipment, he added.
Boris Johnson said the systems would help Ukraine “effectively repel the ongoing Russian attack”.
“We cannot stand by and watch while Russian long-range artillery razes cities and kills innocent civilians,” the prime minister said.
