Britain will provide Apache military helicopters to Ukraine.

The UK will provide Ukraine with up to four Apache military helicopters after it hands over the Challenger 2 tanks.

Earlier, London announced that it would transfer 14 Challenger 2 tanks to Ukraine in the coming weeks.

“Tanks will arrive first and it will take some time before the helicopters can be deployed. Other NATO members will follow suit,” the sources say.

According to the source, Kyiv needs more than four helicopters for their use to be of strategic importance. In his opinion, sending Apache is an important step from a tactical point of view.

It is noted that the helicopters will be equipped with Hellfire missiles. According to the newspaper, the Apaches that will be sent to Ukraine will be similar to those that Prince Harry flew in Afghanistan.
