"We will do our best to help Ukraine defend itself in case of further Russian aggression," Charles Tannock, the member of the European Parliament from the UK, said in an exclusive commentary to an Ukrinform correspondent in Strasbourg.

"I undoubtedly support that the democratic countries such as Ukraine, with democratically elected leaders, should get the defensive arms systems," the British politician added.
He reminded that some NATO countries, including the United States, were already providing Ukraine with weapons in order to strengthen the country's defensive capabilities in confronting the Russian aggression.
"Ukraine should not be deprived of an opportunity to defend its territory," Tannock said.
