UK promises military aid to Ukraine until Russia is defeated | The World | D.W.

The United Kingdom will continue to provide military aid to Ukraine until its victory against Russia, promised this Wednesday (the new British Prime Minister, Liz Truss, during her speech at the United Nations General Assembly.

“At this crucial moment of the conflict, I promise that we will maintain or increase our military support to Ukraine for as long as necessary (…) We will only be calm when Ukraine has triumphed,” Truss assured in the UN tribune.

Earlier on Wednesday, Ukrainian President Volodimir Zelensky, in a pre-recorded video speech broadcast at the General Assembly, called for “just punishment” for Russia, which US President Joe Biden accused of “brazenly violating” the United Nations principles.

Russian mobilization “won’t work”

Truss estimated that Russian President Vladimir Putin, who on Wednesday morning announced the mobilization of hundreds of thousands of reservists, “was trying to justify his catastrophic failure in Ukraine.”

“That will not work. The international alliance is strong and Ukraine is strong,” said the head of the British government.

The Prime Minister promised that “the United Kingdom will spend 3 percent of its GDP on defense between now and 2030, maintaining its leading position as an actor in European security”.
