“We are proud to be the second largest donor of military hardware,” Wallace said.
He recalled that last week he announced that the UK would provide Ukraine with additional air defense missiles to defend against Russian missile strikes – AMRAAM air-to-air missiles, which, used in conjunction with the US-promised NASAMS air defense system, are capable of shooting down cruise missiles. .
“Supporting Ukraine remains a top priority for the Defense Department,” Wallace said.
He said that as winter approaches, the UK is developing an aid package to support Ukrainians during the cold months.
“Including 25,000 sets of winter clothing to make them more effective on the battlefield than their ill-trained, ill-prepared and ill-equipped Russian adversaries, many of whom were mobilized on short notice without sufficient training, equipment or training,” Wallace said.
The British minister added that the UK continues to supply Ukraine with sophisticated electronic warfare equipment that provides additional protection against drones and long-range missiles.
