Military aid, sanctions and reconstruction: Zelenskyy and Sunak sign London Declaration
During his visit to Great Britain, Zelenskyy signed the London Declaration aimed at enhancing support and facilitating the reconstruction of Ukraine
This is stated in the text of the declaration.
The document reads that the UK has already provided Ukraine with almost £4 billion in military, humanitarian and economic support, including £2.3 billion in military aid, which is second only to the United States.
The UK remains committed to provide aid and support, to help restore Ukraine’s energy grid and other civilian infrastructure, and to sanction Russian individuals and entities — including using the frozen Russian assets to help Ukraine.
In the context of military aid, the document emphasizes that the UK is working with Ukraine to help develop the longer-term force structures and capabilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. And ahead of the Vilnius Summit, they will work with Allies to “deepen Ukraine’s interoperability with NATO, and to accelerate Ukraine’s transition to NATO standards”. Britain emphasizes its support for the ‘ten point Peace Formula’ proposed by the President of Ukraine, and is ready to play a leading role in its implementation, and also announced that they will co-host the Ukraine Recovery Conference in London on 21-22 June.
"We are confident that, together with our allies and partners, we will defeat Russia’s illegal and unprovoked invasion, and build a stronger Ukraine where peace and prosperity will prevail," the Declaration concluded.
