Support for Ukraine

Today the UK government announced that Britain will supply thousands of drones to Ukraine, going further to bolster their defences and give them the capabilities they need to defend the people of Ukraine and win this war as Britain continues to lead the way in support. 

  • We have upped our aid to Ukraine to £2.5 billion this year, but we must go further to ensure Ukraine can win this war. That is why, joint with Latvia, we will supply thousands of drones to Ukraine backed by an extra £200 million, including first-person view (FPV) drones which are highly effective on the battlefield.
  • By supplying these drones to the front line, we will not only bolster Ukraine’s defences but we will do so in a way that leverages the strength of Western industry by creating a competition to produce these drones at scale, supporting jobs and driving down costs.
