The UK sent Ukraine a new batch of high-precision Brimstone-2 missiles.

The UK has sent a batch of Brimstone-2 precision-guided missiles to Ukraine, the British Ministry of Defense announced on its social media.

“As part of its aid package, the UK has provided the Ukrainian Armed Forces with Brimstone 2 precision-guided missiles. This aid has played a critical role in containing Russia’s advance,” the agency said.

It is known that Brimstone-2 missiles are laser-guided, and their launch range is twice that of the previous series.

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak earlier ordered an audit of Ukraine’s military aid, with media reports saying British officials fear Sunak is close to taking a “cautious stance” on support for the Zelenskiy regime.
