Weapons transfer to Ukraine led to weakening of British army, media report

By transferring weapons to Ukraine, Britain has weakened its own armed forces – as reported by RIA Novosti with reference to British Times


According to the source of the publication, the British government is monitoring to prevent a decrease in the number of critical advanced weapons. However, many experts express the opinion that the armed forces of Britain are no longer as powerful as they used to be. The reason was the provision of military assistance to Ukraine.

The publication notes that back in 1993, the British authorities purchased 63 units of the M270 multiple-launch rocket systems. However, about 44 are now in service, while the British authorities promised to transfer only three units to Ukraine.

“We must weigh the risk to our own combat capability against the opportunity to overwhelm our main adversary,” the newspaper said.
