Weapons supply


Prof Malcolm Chalmers, deputy director general at the Royal United Services Institute, told The Telegraph such kit would be “especially useful for Ukrainian counter offensive operations” against already retreating Russians. “This is a significant step up in both quantitative and qualitative terms,” he added. “The provision of longer range artillery and armoured vehicles could be of significant benefit to Ukrainian forces.” Prof Chalmers cautioned that the Ukraine war is “increasingly turning into one of attrition, where both sides risk running out of supplies of weapons and ammunition”.
