Sunak: Long-range weapons can give Ukraine advantage on the battlefield

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said on Feb. 22 that providing long-range weapons to Ukraine could give the country a decisive advantage on the battlefield. 

"We are always looking for ways to do more because the conditions on the battlefield are constantly changing," he told Ukrainian journalists, as quoted by the online newspaper Yevropeiska Pravda. "One of the things that can change the situation on the ground is the provision of more long-range weapons."

Sunak expressed confidence that, with the necessary assistance, Russia's war against Ukraine could be ended quickly.

"I believe that if we increase and accelerate our support to Ukraine, we can give the country the means to gain a decisive advantage on the battlefield much earlier. That's why we need to provide support now, and the right kind of support, so that Ukraine can not only defend its territory but also fight back against Russia," he said.
