Britain to send dozens of artillery guns and hundreds of drones to Ukraine


Britain will supply dozens of artillery guns, hundreds of drones and hundreds more anti-tank weapons to Ukraine in the coming weeks, defence secretary Ben Wallace has said.

Wallace announced in an update to Parliament that more than 20 M109 155 millimetres (6.1 inches) self-propelled guns and 36 L119 105mm (4.1 inches) artillery guns will soon reach Ukraine.

Counter-battery radar systems and more than 50,000 rounds of ammunition for Kyiv’s existing Soviet-era artillery will follow, he added.

London will also send more than 1,600 more anti-tank weapons in the coming weeks, along with drones, including hundreds of loitering aerial munitions.
