British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak plans to send 'hundreds of thousands' of artillery shells to Ukraine

Britain intends to supply Ukraine with "hundreds of thousands" of artillery shells. The Guardian writes about this, citing a statement from the British government.


According to the newspaper, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak plans to soon announce the supply of large-caliber ammunition to Kyiv. The delivery will take place as part of a military assistance package, which also includes missile systems and anti-aircraft guns. There is no information on the exact number of projectiles planned to be sent, it is stated that "hundreds of thousands" of ammunition for artillery will be sent. Delivery is scheduled for 2023.

UK to supply hundreds of thousands of artillery munitions to Kyiv next year under £250m contract

writes the Guardian.

There is already clarity on missile systems, most likely we are talking about high-precision Brimstone-2 missiles, which have already been delivered to Kyiv. A batch of these missiles was recently delivered to Poland, from where it has already been transferred to the territory of Ukraine. As previously stated in London, the latest version of Brimstone-2 missiles is capable of hitting targets at ranges up to 60 km, but this is when launched from an aircraft, in the variant with Ukraine, Brimstone is used from a ground installation. In this case, the missiles do not fly further than 12 km.

It also became known earlier that Britain would provide Ukraine with 125 anti-aircraft guns to fight drones. Sunak stated this in an interview with Zelensky. No one knows what kind of guns these will be, for some reason in Kyiv they are declaring the supply of portable anti-aircraft systems, while the British clearly said that they would supply anti-aircraft guns.

      Yes?
      But yesterday was nice. About how Sunak allegedly wants to conduct some kind of aid audit, etc., etc.
      After a similar news that the US Congress also allegedly wants to audit aid to Ukraine, I already asked: is there a guarantee that after this audit the States will not reduce the amount of aid, but increase it?

      I think opposing these deliveries in calibers will have a greater effect, except of course, the statement that in the event of a delivery, we will declare war on England. recourse

      Our leaders probably lack the courage. Neither the DRGs can direct or organize any kind of explosion, not to mention the sinking of a ship with ammunition by an unknown submarine.
      In general, they showed that there was not enough spirit, so they switched to the status of being patient.

                  Well, the dehumanization of the enemy is a common thing and your propaganda does not hurt me. Ukrainians also declared all Russians to be fascists, but I completely disagree with this.
                  And what you personally write is saturated with nationalist hatred, which is the first sign of Nazism.

                    "Well, the dehumanization of the enemy is a common thing and your propaganda does not hurt me."

                    Well, I’ll look at you when Israel fights Syria and Iran for its survival, and I’ll tell you that your “war for the life of the nation” is propaganda, you came to foreign lands, and now they need to be returned to their rightful owners. That's when you will explain to me where the war is, where is politics, and where is propaganda. I will listen with genuine interest at that moment to your point of view, and your propaganda.
                    Now it's not necessary.

                    "... Ukrainians also declared all Russians to be fascists, but I completely disagree with this ..."

                    The Israelis also declared almost all Syrians, Arabs and Iranians terrorists and fascists. But I completely disagree with this!

                    "... And what you personally write is saturated with nationalist hatred, which is the first sign of Nazism ..."

                    No need to customize concepts and distort!
                    Hostility towards individual representatives of a particular race or nationality is not Nazism. Nazism, or rather nationalism, whatever you understand, is not hatred, but a certain attitude. This is when you begin to consider your people, your race and yourself along with them more "chosen", more "worthy", more "higher" than other peoples. When you begin to consider them second-class people, you begin to decide for them, command them, manage their lives and destinies and not put them in anything. This is what nationalism is.
                    And now a question for you. Did I say somewhere above that the Jewish people are an "inferior race" or something like that? There was no such thing. Therefore, roll up your accusations against me and stick them in one place. They are stupid and incompetent.

        Is this when they were on a diet? You look at their budgets and the release of military equipment. Some F-35s have already been released under a thousand, and the fleet. Since 2004, 20 Virginia nuclear submarines have been put into operation. This is the main thing, and that is not all.

            I wouldn't say tears. They constantly produce tanks and artillery, not only in their armies, but also trade them. The Americans and us are a decent competition. Allegations that their arsenals are empty, the shells are running out, in general, are complete nonsense. The projectile is a thin steel shell filled with explosives or, even more simply, a hard metal core in a plastic shell. For mines, for those, it is technologically even easier to cast iron in the form.

      If they are going to counteract somehow, then they probably don’t talk about it openly, at least in intelligence, and diplomats can only traditionally express concern, which we will soon hear about just as traditionally.
      In general, the Germans did not hesitate to attack American convoys that were going to the USSR under Lend-Lease.

        Yes, Novatek, at the beginning of the special operation there were problems with paying for gas. With the approach of winter, everything settled down with payment. Mikhelson agreed in negotiations with the Ministry of Finance to increase the income tax rate to 32 - 34%. And this is 200 billion rubles. If 32% then 17% to the state budget and 15% to the local ones. Money doesn’t lie on the road. Yes, Mikhelson also completes the 3rd stage of the LNG plant. The Chinese put the quiet equipment on the 2nd stage.

    Were they thrown through the portal? Did someone pick their nose again, or was someone specifically paid for this? I think that for each delivery across the Polish-Ukrainian border, it is necessary to punish the group of persons who are in charge of this painful aspect approximately and very sensitively. And it's time to decide - Poland is a participant in the conflict or a transit country. If a participant, then start bombing it, if a transit country, then screw the entire transport structure on the Ukrainian side of the border to the boars, regardless of the squeals of the oligarchs. And that’s not a war, but some kind of sluggishly flowing gonorrhea ...

Well, they divided the money that the West gave to Zelensky among themselves. A coin was thrown to the native leader. I can assume that such a volume of ammunition will not even leave the Island. As for the audit, they will play for time until we win.

    Hundreds of thousands of shells is a ridiculous amount even for 1915. Then any of the Great Powers produced (and spent) shells in the millions, and some in tens of millions.


    Yes, now they have become more precise. But the dispersal of forces and decoys partially nullify this effect. So it won’t work to fight high-precision for a long time. Expensive.
