UK to provide Ukraine with 200 more Brimstone anti-tank missiles

23 February , 2024  

The United Kingdom will send 200 more Brimstone anti-tank missiles to Ukraine and train 10,000 more Ukrainian soldiers, British Defense Secretary Grant Shapps said in parliament.

“Today I am able to announce a new package of 200 Brimstone anti-tank missiles, which will provide an additional boost to the defense of Ukraine. These missiles have already had a significant impact on the fighting, in one case forcing Russian troops to abandon a river crossing attempt and retreat,” The Guardian quoted Shapps as saying on Thursday.

PA Media also reports, citing the minister, that the UK will train the Ukrainian military together with other allies.

“Together, we will train another 10,000 people in the first half of 2024,” the UK Defense Secretary said.
