Britain to supply Ukraine with hundreds of thousands of artillery ammunition in 2023
Great Britain will deliver hundreds of thousands of artillery ammunition to Ukraine next year.
This was reported on the website of the British government.
Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is set to travel to Latvia on December 19 to discuss ongoing efforts to counter Russian aggression in the Nordic and Baltic region with his Joint Expeditionary Force (JEF) counterparts.
It is reported that Rishi Sunak will call on leaders at JEF to sustain or exceed 2022 levels of support for Ukraine in 2023 through ongoing lethal aid, economic resilience and political backing.
The British prime minister’s call will come as the UK announces it will supply hundreds of thousands of rounds of artillery ammunition next year, under a £250 million contract that will ensure a constant flow of critical artillery ammunition to Ukraine throughout 2023.
It is noted that since February of this year, Britain has already supplied Ukraine with more than 100,000 rounds of ammunition, rocket launchers and other weapons.
It was also recently announced the transfer of 125 anti-aircraft guns to counter Russian strikes on critical infrastructure and energy facilities.
The JEF meeting, which brings together the leaders of Denmark, Finland, Estonia, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway and the United Kingdom, will also be addressed by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenksy.
At the summit the leaders will discuss the defensive capabilities needed by Ukrainian forces, including further strengthening of air defence.
Ukrainian military personnel continue their training in Great Britain. The Ministry of Defense of Great Britain has showcased the training of the Ukrainian military in Northern England.
As previously reported, over 19,000 servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are planned to undergo training in Britain in 2023.
Moreover, approximately 10,000 Ukrainian military personnel will complete their training by the New Year under Operation INTERFLEX.
