Prystaiko announces lethal weapon contract with UK

Ukraine expects to receive military assistance from the United Kingdom in the near future, in particular a contract for lethal weapons.

Vadym Prystaiko, who has been appointed to the post of Ukraine's Ambassador to the UK, said this in an interview with the Yevropeiska Pravda online media outlet.

"The British track is unique. It is now becoming more and more important, and not only for Ukraine. The UK is also our very important security partner, from whom, I hope, we will soon be able to receive real military aid, the assistance in the development of the Armed Forces," Prystaiko said.

According to him, this refers to "a major contract for lethal weapons - not only acquisition but also production and localization in Ukraine."

The diplomat noted that the issue of localization is the position of the Ukrainian government, and, in his words, it is fair.

As reported, on July 20, President Volodymyr Zelensky appointed former Vice Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine Vadym Prystaiko as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to the United Kingdom.
