UK boosts military aid to Ukraine with £60M package for drones and air defense systems

The United Kingdom has announced a £60 million military aid package for Ukraine, aimed at bolstering the country’s defense capabilities with drones and air defense systems.

This funding, sourced from the UK-administered International Fund for Ukraine, is part of a larger commitment to support Ukraine’s resistance against Russian aggression.

UK Defence Secretary Grant Shapps recently declared an increase in funding to £325 million, allowing for the purchase of over 10,000 drones for the Ukrainian forces, including surveillance, maritime, and one-way attack drones.

This assistance is crucial as Ukraine continues to face challenges on the battlefield and seeks to strengthen its defense infrastructure.
