Ukraine will purchase two British minesweeping ships, missile weapons and modern technology to protect its coast….

“Four areas that will strengthen the capacity of our navy will be implemented [as part of the agreement with the United Kingdom], and this will be made public soon. I am convinced that two ships will be purchased in the near future, and they will immediately join the Navy. Work will begin on the construction of two naval ports and on the construction of smaller ships in Ukraine and the United Kingdom,” Prystaiko said.
