Russia-Ukraine: UK To Send Helicopters To Ukraine For First Time

The United Kingdom is set to send helicopters to Ukraine for the first time since the beginning of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The defence ministry in London disclosed the development on Wednesday.

The Ministry added that ten crews of Ukrainian service personnel and engineers underwent a six-week training program in the UK, as part of the “first helicopter capability the UK has donated to Ukraine”.

In addition to the three former British military Sea King helicopters, the first of which has already arrived, the UK will also supply an additional 10,000 artillery rounds.

In a statement, Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said; “Our support for Ukraine is unwavering.

These additional artillery rounds will help Ukraine to secure the land it has reclaimed from Russia in recent weeks.”

The announcement came as Wallace visited Norway for a meeting of the Northern Group of defence ministers onboard the UK’s aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth.

The Northern Group is a UK initiative aimed at promoting defence and security cooperation in northern Europe.
