Britain is going to the end of the year to expand military presence in Ukraine, and in 2019 – to increase the presence in the Black sea. This was stated by the Minister of defence of Britain Gavin Williamson, reports The Daily Telegraph.

“Britain will increase its military support to its ally, sending the Royal Navy later this year and will increase the presence of patrols by the Royal Navy in the Black sea in 2019”, – stated in the message.

British defense Minister added that he has no doubt that the situation in the East of Ukraine is responsible directly to the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin. According to Williamson, Britain sees the Russian aggression and also in the Black sea.

“We will expand our efforts to educate and support the Royal Navy and Marines, making sure that the Ukrainian Navy and the Ukrainian armed forces had the skills and technical capabilities in order to counter these growing threats,” said the British Minister.

He stressed that commitment to the UK remains steady, because “safer than you are here, the safer we are in the UK.”

Earlier it was reported that the UK intends to create kibervoyska to counter the Russian threat.
