UK to send 200 more Brimstone anti-tank missiles to Ukraine

The UK will provide Ukraine with 200 additional Brimstone anti-tank missiles, UK Defense Secretary Grant Shapps announced in parliament on 22 February, The Guardian reported.

The UK has been one of the largest suppliers of military aid to Ukraine, has been training the Ukrainian Armed Forces, and was the first European country to provide lethal assistance to Ukraine, including long-range Storm Shadow missiles and British-made Challenger-2 main battle tanks.

“Today I can announce a new package of 200 “Brimstone” anti-tank missiles in a further boost to defend Ukraine. These missiles have previously had significant impact on the battlefield, in one instance forcing Russian forces to abandon and retreat an attempted crossing of a river,” Shapps said.

Additionally, Shapps stated that the UK, in collaboration with other allies, would train a further 10,000 Ukrainian troops in the first half of 2024.

On 12 January 2024, the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Rishi Sunak, signed a Ukraine-UK security agreement in Kyiv.
