The UK has allocated funds to Ukraine to strengthen its naval infrastructure amidst tensions with Russia.
More than $2 billion in funds have been allocated to construct missile boats and modernize the current Ukrainian fleet through an agreement carried out by Ukraine and the UK in the middle of growing tensions with Russia.
The contract was approved by the parliament of Ukraine, with 275 parliamentarians voting for the move.
The deal guarantees UK support to the Eastern European country in terms of loans not exceeding £1.7 billion, i.e., almost $2.3 billion US dollars.
Alexander Polishchuk, Ukrainian Deputy Defense Minister, said that the agreement stands for purchasing and joint production of two mine hunters as part of investment projects.
Twitter of the Russian Embassy in the UK began to reassure the President of Ukraine Zelensky, saying that the West’s talk about imminent war is painful for the Ukrainian economy, and the situation on the border is no more tense than a year ago. pic.twitter.com/YxS78EsG46
