Britain will supply Ukraine with self-propelled artillery systems and loitering munitions

This is stated in a press release issued by the office of the British Prime Minister following a phone conversation between UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“The Prime Minister was kept up to date on the latest UK military equipment, including ten self-propelled artillery systems and loitering munitions, which would be arriving in the coming days and weeks,” according to the document.

Johnson also informed Zelensky of “discussions held last week at the G7 and NATO.”

“The Prime Minister stated that the world was behind Ukraine and that President Zelenskyy’s military could retake territory recently captured by Putin’s forces,” according to the document.

“On grain, the leaders agreed on the importance of getting it out of Ukraine as soon as possible, and the Prime Minister stated that the UK would continue to work closely with partners on next steps and stand ready to assist in any way possible,” according to the document.

The parties also talked about Eurovision 2023, and the Prime Minister said the UK had asked the EBU to take Ukraine’s proposals into account.

As previously reported, the United Kingdom will nearly double its military support to Ukraine with an additional GBP 1 billion (over $1.2 billion) to help the country move beyond defense against Russia’s invasion and into offensive operations.
