LONDON, 6 March. /TASS/. Great Britain will supply Ukraine with a next batch of non-lethal equipment worth £850,000 ($1.29 million), the press service of the British Ministry of Defense said on Friday.
The cargo that includes helmets, helmet-mounted monocular night vision goggles, global positioning units (GPS), hardened laptops and first aid kits will be delivered to Ukraine in coming weeks.
"Our overall aim is to strengthen the defensive capability of the Ukrainian armed forces and build the resilience that they need," Defense Secretary Michael Fallon said.
Last year the United Kingdom granted the aid worth £1.2 million ($1.8 million). It supplied the crisis-stricken war-torn Ukraine with winter fuel, sleeping bags, medical goods, winter clothes and protective gear.
In mid-February London confirmed deliveries of the Saxon armoured personnel carriers to Ukraine, noting that a private company had sold the combat vehicles in line with a contract sealed in 2013 before the outbreak of the armed conflict.
In parallel, London plans to send 75 servicemen to Ukraine as advisors, Prime Minister David Cameron said in late February.
Military specialists on a short-term basis will be consulting on four directions — field medicine, combat service support, reconnaissance (tactical level) and training of infantry units.
