Ben Wallace – 2022 Comments on UK Defence Industry and Support for Ukraine

The comments made by Ben Wallace, the Secretary of State for Defence, on 20 June 2022.

Backed by our formidable Defence industry, the UK has been one of the global leaders in providing military assistance to support Ukraine’s armed forces. Their creativity and commitment to this complex and demanding problem has been invaluable to helping resist the Russian invasion.

As this unprovoked attack continues and Russia’s tactics change, we are working closely with industry partners to provide innovative solutions that will bolster the heroic Ukrainian efforts for the coming weeks and months.
