UK PM Sunak to Promises More Aid to Support Ukraine

Kyiv will get an extra £500 million from the UK over the £2.5 billion allotted for this fiscal year.

According to Rishi Sunak, the UK must take the lead in protecting Ukraine. Sunak will meet with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz in Berlin next Wednesday.

In the words of the prime minister, expansionist Russia poses a threat to Europe, while a problematic summer is in store for Ukraine.

The border between Poland and Ukraine is 300 km long. Along the Baltic Sea, Poland has a 130-mile land border with Russia’s exclave Kaliningrad. Sunak’s main points of argument for Europe overall, as they pertain to Ukraine, will be more ammo, air defenses, drones, and engineering help.

Downing Street also announced that British-made drones will get an extra £500 million this year.

House lawmakers in the United States have given their final approval to a new military assistance package worth billions of dollars to Ukraine.

The $61 billion (£49 billion) plan finally passed after considerable delay thanks to a bipartisan compromise and the vociferous opposition of some lawmakers. The next stop is the Senate, which will likely be passed within the coming days and signed into law by President Joe Biden.

In response to Kyiv’s urgent demands and Russian assaults that have resulted in fatalities, Mr. Stoltenberg said that NATO would provide Ukraine with more modern air defenses during a conference between the two countries last week.

Britain is delivering over 1,600 attack and air defense missiles, along with more Storm Shadow long-range missiles, in what it claims to be its biggest-ever weaponry shipment.

Next year, the UK will meet with NATO commander Jens Stoltenberg. They will propose the deployment of an RAF squadron to patrol the skies above Poland on NATO’s behalf.

The ongoing conflict in Europe serves as a stark reminder that the Middle East is not the only place where war is raging.

The discussion will resume on Wednesday when Mr. Sunak meets with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz in Berlin.
