The new package will include 6,000 new defensive missiles, comprising anti-tank and high explosive weapons. It will also send $33m (£25m) in financial assistance for the Ukrainian military.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will announce the new military assistance package at the Nato and G7 leaders’ meetings scheduled for later today.

The new package will more than double the UK’s defensive lethal aid to Ukraine to approximately 10,000 missiles.

The UK has also committed $528m (£400m) in humanitarian and economic aid.

During the meeting with Nato and G7 leaders, Prime Minister Johnson is also expected to urge the allies to increase military assistance for Ukraine, as well as economic sanctions against Russia.

Johnson said: “The Ukrainian people have shown themselves to be extraordinarily brave and tenacious in defending their homeland, in the face of an unprovoked onslaught.

“But we cannot, and will not, stand by while Russia grinds Ukraine’s towns and cities into dust. The UK will work with our allies to step up military and economic support to Ukraine, strengthening their defences, as they turn the tide in this fight.”

Germany has started sending additional supplies of Strela missiles to Ukraine following multiple delays, reported Reuters.

Sweden is also sending an additional 5,000 anti-tank weapons to the war-affected country.

Last week, US President Biden signed an order to transfer an additional $800m worth of military equipment to Ukraine.
