Details: Shapps said that UK-based defence companies ensure the country’s security, as well as help countries like Ukraine defend their freedom and act as global champions for the UK.
Quote: “We’ll back them all the way against those who want to defund the industry due to so-called ethical investing rules that are not only immoral but dangerous.”
Details: The day before, UK Foreign Secretary David Cameron said during a visit to Kyiv that Russia was hoping to wait out the war in vain.
Prior to that, Shapps reiterated that the UK would continue to work with its allies to provide Ukraine with “what it needs to win”.
After the September-format Ramstein meeting, he announced dozens of thousands of artillery shells for Ukraine.
