BRITISH PM JOHNSON TO ANNOUNCE NEW MILITARY AID TO UKRAINE DURING HIS SPEECH IN PARLIAMENT ON TUESDAY

The UK will provide Ukraine with another £300m ($375m) in military aid to support Ukraine’s ongoing defense against Russia’s illegal incursion.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson will present this new aid package during his speech to the Verkhovna Rada by video link, the office of the head of the British government announced.

The new batch of aid will include electronic warfare equipment, a counter-battery radar system, night vision devices and satellite navigation jamming equipment. London will also supply heavy drones to support isolated forces and more than a dozen new specialized Toyota Land Cruisers to protect civilians in eastern Ukraine and evacuate civilians from frontline areas.

The prime minister is expected to say that this is Ukraine’s “finest hour” and the UK is “proud to be among its friends.”

“This is Ukraine’s finest hour, an epic chapter in your national history that future generations will remember and tell. Your children and grandchildren will say that Ukrainians have taught the world that the brute force of an aggressor means nothing against the moral strength of a people who have decided to be free,” quotes the premier’s office as saying his planned speech.

Johnson is expected to note that when the UK faced the threat of invasion during the Second World War, its Parliament, like the Verkhovna Rada, continued to meet throughout the conflict, and the British people showed such unity and determination that the country is remembering the time of the greatest danger as her finest hour.

It is indicated that this will be the first speech of a world leader in the Supreme Rage since the beginning of the war.

Britain has previously delivered more than 5,000 anti-tank missiles and five air defense systems to Ukraine worth £200m.
