Great Britain will give Ukrainian Armed Forces six unmanned vehicles for search mines in order to clear the coastline, according to the website of the Ministry of Defense of the Kingdom.
“This equipment and training will help Ukraine secure its own waters, improve the flow of grain to the rest of the world, and support the Ukrainian Armed Forces in their quest to protect their coastline and ports,” said Minister Ben Wallace.
Three drones will be sent from the stocks of the British army, three more will be purchased from the manufacturer. The UAV is designed for use at depths up to 100m close to the shore. British sailors and servicemen of the US Navy's 6th Fleet will train their Ukrainian colleagues; human. The first group has already begun training in the UK (according to Sky News, we are talking about 12 sailors), the training process for each will take three weeks.
The British Ministry of Defense notes that, despite progress has been made on the export of Ukrainian grain, Russian mines still hinder supplies. Wallace called the current situation “a cynical attempt by Russia to contain food supplies”, calling for this to be prevented.
The Russian side denies these accusations. Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov called the relevant reports “insinuations”, arguing that the world community is confident in the mining of the Black Sea coastal waters by Ukraine itself. “This practice extends to numerous social and infrastructure facilities,” — considers the diplomat. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also spoke about the mining of waters by the Ukrainian military.
By mid-August, the UK had trained more than 2,300 Ukrainian military personnel as part of a program that started in June. The Netherlands, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Germany and Latvia have already joined this initiative. “We will not get tired and will support Ukraine today, tomorrow and in the coming months,” — Wallace emphasized then.
