Britain vows to support Ukraine militarily against 'Russian threat'

"We're ready to support you," said British Prime Minister Theresa May to Ukrainian president. She promised that UK stands ready to help defend Ukraine against any further Russian aggression, reported The Sun. Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko visited Downing Street on Wednesday.

Mrs May said Britain was “ready to support” his country which is under threat from Russia. She also vowed to push for further sanctions on President Putin.

According to the Ukrainian president’s press service, during the meeting, Poroshenko and May have also discussed the expansion of security cooperation including more British troops becomming “more involved” in Ukraine’s internal conflict.

More than 800 UK troops have been deployed to Eastern Europe – along with tanks and heavy armor – "to defend against Russian aggression", that many are starting to ask for proof of. At the same time Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said that UK’s relationship with Russia are at an all-time low.

Ukraine continues to allege Russian occupation of it’s Donbass region as well as mass troop movements inside the war torn region, but is unable to provide proof of such activity. Local and Russian experts in turn point out that without Russia to blame all of Ukraine’s troubles, they become simply known as a failed state run by oligarchs, criminals and western corporations in bed with them.
