Britain will send multiple launch rocket systems to Ukraine in a bid to further arm the country against Vladimir Putin's forces.
Russian soldiers remain waging war on their international neighbours after months of bloody fighting which has killed tens of thousands of civilians and troops.
The invasion which is already widely regarded as a failure of Putin's, is not expected to get any easier for his military as the UK equips Ukraine's unrelenting resistance with deadly rockets.
The precision-guided rocket systems the UK has agreed to send to Ukraine, are capable of striking enemies from 49 miles away.
Brits will also train Ukrainian army personnel in the UK on how to use the M2701B1 launchers.
The UK's Defence Secretary Ben Wallace confirmed the agreement stating the donation of rocket systems will “better enable our Ukrainian friends to protect themselves”.
Ukraine is also expecting a shipment from the United States of a small number of its medium-range HIMARS (High Mobility Artillery Rocket System).
Western allies have been called on by Ukraine to provide longer-range missiles that will help the country counter Russian artillery assaults in the eastern Donbas region where Putin is focusing his offensive.
Russian soldiers sent to fight in Ukraine have mutinied on camera over appalling provisions during the invasion.
