The United Kingdom has promised to supply hundreds of new air defense missiles and long-range kamikaze drones to Ukraine to help it fend off Russian invasion.
The declared flight range of these drones exceeds 200 km.
The British government made the announcement on May 15, after the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky arrived in Great Britain for talks with Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, Reuters writes.
“The Prime Minister would on Monday confirm the provision of hundreds of air defence missiles and further unmanned aerial systems including hundreds of new long-range attack drones with a range of over 200 kilometres,” the statement said.
The U.K. recently confirmed the transfer of Storm Shadow/ Scalp cruise missiles to Kyiv, one of which Russia claimed to have shot down today.
