Ukraine's Deputy Defence Minister has visited the UK to see how the MOD is supporting his country's Armed Forces.

Volodymyr Havrylov visited MOD Abbey Wood near Bristol, the base of Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) which is responsible for procuring much of the military aid the UK sends Ukraine.

Britain has so far sent more than £2.3bn in military support, including armoured vehicles, anti-tank weapons and Multiple-Launch Rocket Systems (MLRS) which Ukrainians have used to hit targets on the battlefield with precision.

Also on Wednesday, defence minister James Heappey joined a call with colleagues on the US-led Ukraine Defense Contact Group, which discusses support for Ukraine.

Mr Heappey said: "The Ukrainian people have no closer friend in their heroic fight than the United Kingdom.

"The military aid we have provided so far has made a real difference on the battlefield. My continued engagement with Volodymyr and with international partners through organisations like the Ukraine Defense Contact Group have allowed us to support Ukraine's requirements for the coming winter and beyond."
