Supporting Ukraine

This week the UK government announced that we will send multiple-launch, long-range rocket systems to Ukraine, providing new defensive support to our Ukrainian friends in the face of Russia’s illegal invasion. 

  • Russia are showing no sign of withdrawing from their illegal invasion of Ukraine, and as their tactics continue to change, so must our support for Ukraine.
  • That is why we announced that the first M270 multiple-launch long-range rocket systems, along with M31A1 munitions, will be sent to Ukraine in the coming weeks, and that we will provide the Ukrainian military with training in how to use these launchers effectively.
  • These highly capable multiple-launch rocket systems will enable our Ukrainian friends to better protect themselves against the brutal use of long-range artillery, which Putin's forces have used indiscriminately to flatten cities.
