Support for Ukraine

This week Defence Secretary Ben Wallace praised industry leaders for their vital role in helping provide weapons, ammunition and logistical support to Ukraine, as we stand shoulder to should with our ally in their hour of need. 

  • As this unprovoked attack continues and Russia’s tactics change, the UK government is working closely with industry partners to provide innovative solutions that will bolster the heroic Ukrainian efforts.
  • That is why the Defence Secretary convened a roundtable at Downing Street with industry leaders yesterdays, as organisations came forward with proposals to accelerate the development of equipment for Ukraine’s armed forces. Their creativity and commitment to this complex and demanding problem has been invaluable to helping resist the Russian invasion.
  • Backed by our formidable Defence industry, the UK has been one of the global leaders in providing military assistance to support Ukraine’s armed forces to defend their sovereignty and territorial integrity and ensure Putin's illegal war fails.
