UK supplying Ukraine with defensive weapons against Russia

Britain is providing Ukraine with a new armament system in order to strengthen its defensive capacities in the face of an increasingly aggressive attitude from Russia, UK Defense Minister Ben Wallace said on Monday.

"We have taken the decision to supply Ukraine with light anti-armor defensive weapon systems," Wallace pointed out and also invited his counterpart to visit London in the following weeks to discuss the ongoing crisis.

Wallace added that the weapons have a solely defensive purpose and that they do not pose any threats to Russia.
