The UK is taking a lead role in coordinating the humanitarian and military support to Ukraine. This includes lethal aid in the form of defensive weapons, and non-lethal aid such as body armour.

Anti-aircraft weapons (Starstreak) are being issued to the Ukrainian Armed Forces for them to use for the purpose of defending their sovereign country. Under the current circumstances, the Ukrainian Ministry of Defence is likely to have operational command of the National Guard, which also includes the Azov battalion. All shipments of lethal aid to Ukraine are being carefully calibrated against the current context on the ground
