Boris Johnson announces GBP100M defense aid to Ukraine from Scotland, Wales

Two members of the United Kingdom – Scotland and Wales – have approved decisions on allocating security assistance to Ukraine worth a total of GBD100 million.

That’s according to UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

“The @WelshGovernment has contributed £35m to our military support for Ukraine, and Welsh families have taken in 3,000 refugees,” Johnson tweeted.

He added that GBP65 million have been provided by Scotland, which has also vowed readiness to accept Ukrainian refugees.

“I've just spoken to @NicolaSturgeon to herald the success of UK collaboration supporting Ukraine. I thanked the @ScotGov’s £65 million contribution in upping UK’s military aid to Ukraine to £2.3 billion & efforts to help house 6,000 Ukrainian refugees. Thank you, Scotland,” reads another tweet by Johnson.
