UK extends military aid to Ukraine with new M31A1 systems

British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace announced Thursday that his country would expand the military aid to Ukraine with a new supply of multiple-launch rocket systems (MLRS), the M31A1, which can hit objectives up to 80 Km.

"This latest tranche of military support will enable the Armed Forces of Ukraine to continue to defend against Russian aggression and the indiscriminate use of long-range artillery," stated Wallace.

The defense secretary added that more than 20 155-millimeter self-propelled guns; 105-millimeter artillery guns and ammunition; more than 50,000 ammunition rounds for Ukraine's Soviet-era artillery; and at least 1,600 anti-tank arms are also being delivered to Ukraine.
