Ukraine and the United Kingdom have agreed to intensify bilateral cooperation to counter Russia’s aggression.

This is stated in a joint statement by the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine and the Ministry of Defence of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

"The Ukrainian and the UK Defense Ministries have agreed to deepen cooperation in countering Russia’s aggression, malign activity and abuse of the rules-based international system in Ukraine, in the UK and elsewhere," the statement reads.

The Ministry of Defence of the United Kingdom stressed complete and unconditional support of Ukraine’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity; and assured continuous support for Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic aspiration, primarily the process of increasing the capability of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

In turn, the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine confirmed its decisive will to continue reforming the defence sector in accordance with the principles and approaches adopted in the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO).

The parties also agreed to maintain continuous dialogue between the Defence Ministries of the two nations, improve cooperation in cyber, hybrid defence and defence intelligence, increase UK advisory assistance available to Ukraine and augment the military diplomatic representation of the United Kingdom in Ukraine.

As reported, the UK will increase military support for Ukraine as the country continues to face Russian aggression.
