Defence Secretary Michael Fallon informed Parliament that the UK will provide a £971,000 gifting package as part of our non-lethal support being provided to the UAF.
The equipment being gifted includes 170 large tents, 170 heating units and 600 sets of cold weather clothing.
Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said:
“The UK is committed to supporting Ukraine’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity.
That is why we are providing this gift of non-lethal equipment, to further help prevent Ukrainian fatalities and casualties, strengthen their defensive capability and build their resilience.”
Despite the latest ceasefire, UAF personnel remain deployed in the areas affected by conflict and continue to suffer fatalities and casualties.
The proposed gifting package, which has been agreed with the UAF, is designed to prevent further Ukrainian fatalities and casualties and to help improve resilience on the ground.
