Afghan Voice Agency(AVA)_Monitoring, The UK government announced the plan after a previously announced visit to Kyiv by Sunak on Saturday, his first since taking office in October, Bloomberg reported.
While Ukraine’s armed forces succeed in pushing back Russian forces on the ground, civilians are being brutally bombarded from the air,” Sunak said after meeting with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
“We are today providing new air defense, including anti-aircraft guns, radar and anti-drone equipment, and stepping up humanitarian support for the cold, hard winter ahead.”
Top Ukrainian officials have repeatedly called on allies to help the nation step up its air defenses, Bloomberg reported.
“This Russian terror is not just another enemy’s cruelty toward Ukrainians. It is a display of a cynical Russian anti-European policy, anti-human policy,” Zelenskyy said. He added that Ukraine had been preparing to export more electricity to the European Union, and that “Russian attacks also aimed at destroying our energy connection” to Europe.
“Every strike at Ukraine’s energy is a strike at the energy security of the whole continent,” he said.
