Ukraine will receive from the UK several anti-mine ships from the Royal Navy.


This was announced by the Ambassador of Ukraine to Britain Vadym Prystaiko.

Prystaiko said he had already visited one of the ships on which Ukrainian sailors are being trained.
"They control the ship, they control the weapons. There will be several such ships. We now need anti-mine ships. Two is the starting number we're working with right now. These are warships that are in service with Her Majesty's naval forces. They have more of the same class," Prystaiko said.
Prystaiko added that these ships will be re-equipped and will add special equipment needed by Ukraine.
