Britain will increase military support for Ukraine as the country continues to face Russian aggression.

Additional troops and a Royal Navy ship will be deployed to Ukraine to defend “freedom and democracy”, The Telegraph reported on Wednesday.

"The UK will increase military support for Ukraine as the country continues to face Russian aggression, the Defence Secretary will announce today," the report reads.

Ukrainian Special Forces and Marines will be trained by British personnel and HMS Echo, a Royal Navy hydrographic survey ship with a company of 72, will deploy to the region.

“As long as Ukraine faces Russian hostilities, it will find a steadfast partner in the United Kingdom,” Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson says.
