More help for Ukraine

Today Britain announced that we will send two Royal Navy minehunter ships to Ukraine as part of a new Maritime Capability Coalition, opening up vital export routes and providing long-term support to the Ukrainian Navy. 

  • Ukraine’s economy continues to be impacted by Putin’s blockage in the Black Sea, which has significantly reduced the country’s ability to move vital exports by sea.
  • That is why the Defence Secretary today confirmed that two Royal Navy minehunter ships will be transferred to the Ukrainian Navy to strengthen Ukraine’s ability to operate at sea. This comes as the UK and Norway launch a new Maritime Capability Coalition to build long-term support for Ukraine’s Navy to bolster security in the Black Sea. 
  • These minehunter ships will deliver vital capability to Ukraine, helping to save lives at sea and open up vital export routes which have been severely limited since Putin launched his full-scale invasion
