UK Steps Up Support To Kiev, Pledges To Supply Ukrainian Forces With 6,000 Missiles

On March 24, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that the UK will provide a new military aid package to Ukraine.

Johnson said while attending the NATO and G7 leaders’ meeting in Brussels that the UK will provide Kiev government forces with 6,000 missiles, in addition to the 4,000 NLAW and Javelin anti-tank missiles already supplied.

The PM confirmed that the new military aid package will include British-made Starstreak MANPADs [man-portable air-defense systems]. The system’s anti-aircraft missiles, which are guided by laser-beam riding, have a maximum range of 7 kilometers only.

“We’re providing £25 million in financial backing for the Ukrainian military, which is on top of the £400 million we’ve committed in humanitarian and economic aid,” Johnson said, adding that the UK will also provide an additional £4.1 million for the BBC World Service to tackle what he called “disinformation” in Russia and Ukraine.

Johnson’s announcement was not a surprise. The UK has been leading Western efforts to support the Kiev government side by side with the US.

Western military aid to Kiev government forces began before the start of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine on February 24. The UK in particular has been working to train and arm the Ukrainian military for the last eight years.

Britain hopes that Western military support will eventually foil the Russian operation in Ukraine. The humanitarian results of prolonging the fighting in the country are not apparently an issue for the West.

It’s worth noting that the Russian military has already captured or destroyed several shipments of Western-supplied weapons. Some of captured Western weapons have already entered service with the armed forces of the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Luhansk People’s Republic.

So far this the biggest NATO military commitment to a terrorist organization and will cause a lot of Slavic bloodshed. Ukraine is being used to bleed Russia and ultimately a weakened Russia itself will be attacked for its immense wealth. Russian tactics of passivity so far a a bit baffling. The Nazis who are in control in Kiev will only understand that Russia is serious if all of the C31 is shut down and the infrastructure destroyed. Russia has not even been shelling the access roads into Kiev, which is simply mind boggling for a professional military man. US had totally destroyed the Iraqi infrastructure in the first 24 hours. Russia has not even taken out the Radio, TV, internet or communications.

US and UK military industrial contractors are using political lobby group power to put heavy pressure on those governments to supply missiles. It means the US and UK give their current stocks and have to reorder new inventories. Bingo for Rayethon and BAE corporations. The old stocks have been sitting around on shelves, they have to be used up to get reordered, and that’s what these companies want, more contract orders.

USANATO war. Ukrainians are just pawns. No cookies, not even bread for them. Only junk weapons.

G2 guy

Unfortunately, Russia so far has not established control of the skies and four Ukrainian airbases are operational and all the roads to the arms conduit of Poland are open. It looks like Russia is repeating the mistakes of Afghanistan. This time Russia simply can not afford to lose as Russia itself will be attacked if it fails in Ukraine.

How’s the territorial integrity of the Ukraine today? Anticipate a big counter-attack to envelope the forces that have been parked outside Ukrainian cities for a month now?

jens holm

Thats not easy to get troops to make changes. All seemes more or less bound in stalemates.

We have seen some counterattcks by the Ukras. One or two doing well but also one or two which went bad or really bad.

So they has to find troops and good ones with very good planes. Thats both ways. Russians might do it as well.

Wizzy

Ain’t no counter attack. That’s the Russians drawing away the Ukies from their strongholds. They foolishly oblige.

Then why are the Ukrops the ones hiding in hospitals, kindergartens, and shopping centers?

Clyde

It’s all a mind-game. By getting their radar, barracks, supply depots, aircraft and armoured vehicles destroyed by Russia, the Ukrainians are lulling them into a false sense of security. Once the Russians have become less vigilant, the surprise Ukrainian counter-offensive on Twitter will demoralize the Russians to the point that they flee. It’s all part of the Zelensky-Biden strategy. Look it up.

Russian

And Ukrainian tanks will be soon rolling on Moscow. Keep dreaming

John

it’s called sarcasm, not dreaming. ‘counter offensive on Twitter’. lol

According to SBU propaganda. Meanwhile Mariopol has fallen. News just in.

Thanks, with all the seriousness of war, I needed good laugh !

AssyriaRising

Dude the “President” (*cough) of Ukraine has long fled Kiev, and the absurd “summit” meeting with Slovakia etc was actually held in POLAND, and all faked up to look like was held in Lliv. Those foreign leaders were NEVER going to risk flying into Lliv! Zelensky is in fucking POLAND making media propaganda videos.

Thats true. I think Putin has much more dirty laundry. Putin was the attacker.

Its USA and UK which has reorganized the Ukra forces.

This is what the US did with the failed puppet in South Vietnam. Kept pumping in materiel when they knew the jig was up, because the deaths of soldiers and civilians is not a concern for the US empire. As the late great Madeleine Albright said, “We think the price is worth it.”

Military academy here again, asshole nazi’s : 1. Track those shipments and try destroying them on move throw Ukraine or drone the ammo warehouses and then….BOMB BOMB BOMB. here, underground spies inside Ukropistan must be activated at full speed. 2. Gather 150 snipers and let them have experience when Mariupol is now a small pocket filled with piled up syphilitic cocaine banderist trash. I told you that ! 3. One singular submarine ballistic missile salvo to give them experience and to verify weapons in real war life. I know submarine’s are tactical weapons ready to react on other more major threats, like NATO whores countries next Ukraine, but 1 salvo works and their’s location must be a strict secret, but move them around a little bit.

i really fear that at least some of these weapons will find their way OUT of ukraine and into the west, where they will be used against civilian planes, crowded places and so on. Remember what happened in Paris with just some AK-47s armeg guys? Immagine stingers and javelins used on planes or Christmass fares …

Duran

It’s a small part of American strategy. As Europe sinks deeper into conflict and degrades, Us will sell its weapons to its stupid Europeans and fill their treasure chests. Us plan has always been world domination.

Eliminating putin fascists will help to prevent MH17 kind of murders

Use your brain, since when these politicians had something to say. Eliminate today’s Us banking system then you have solved the problem.

Russia must destroy those weapon shipments beforehand. Also Russia must take notice of activities of Poland. Poland has become very aggressive and belligerent recently.

NATO is using subversive terrorist tactics to smuggle in weapons to UKROPS. They Using civilian marked trucks and civilian vans. Very hard to pinpoint. Thats what pathetic cowards NATO are. Hopefully RU satellite operators will notice a pattern of trucks/vans and see where they head to, and flatten it with a Khinzal again :D

Amazed Europe has internet connections between themselves and the USA. For what countries like the UK, Spain and Poland have done is a clear act of war by providing the continuous supplying weapons against Russian security in her near abroad, causing economic harms and the theft of and stealing assets that don’t belong to them.

I don’t understand people on here crying about such news ( and the stupid nazis laughing while they are losing badly ). 6000 missiles? Do you understand how big the trucks must be? Sending 6000 missiles to the frontlines, without being seen, is practically impossible. They will probably arrive in Lvov. From there the corrupt ukrop officials will sell a good part on the black market and stock the rest in some warehouse. An ukranian spy working for Moscow will send the coords to the russian army and KABOOM! Another Khinzal movie.
