The purpose of supplying Ukraine with weapons, including precision-guided missiles, is to prevent other Western countries from forcing Kyiv to make concessions in order to make peace with Russia. This statement was made by the head of the British Ministry of Defense Ben Wallace, he is quoted by TASS.
“Ukrainians should not be forced to make concessions in order to ensure that Ukraine is in the best position for negotiations,” the minister said, speaking in the House of Commons of the British Parliament. According to Wallace, in order to prevent a scenario of political pressure on Kiev, “the UK and its partners will continue to provide military and economic support, impose sanctions against Russia and increase international pressure on it.” Earlier, Wallace confirmed the shipment of Storm Shadow long-range cruise missiles to Kyiv. “Today I can confirm that the UK is transferring Storm Shadow missiles to Ukraine,” the minister said.
