According to reports from the BBC and local media on the 23rd, British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said that the UK will send helicopters to Ukraine. This is the first time that the UK has sent a manned aircraft to Ukraine since the outbreak of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
The media said that the UK will send three “Sea King” helicopters, the first of which has arrived in Ukraine. The Ukrainian crew have spent the past six weeks in the UK training to pilot and maintain the aircraft.
In addition, Wallace said that Britain will also provide Ukraine with an additional 10,000 artillery shells.
