UK hands £19m aid to Ukraine
BRITAIN is providing £19 million of aid to the Ukraine government, Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said as he warned of the risk of it becoming a “frozen conflict” as attention turns elsewhere.
He stressed the UK was one of the largest contributors to the special monitoring mission and reiterated his commitment to maintaining pressure on Russia through sanctions to withdraw troops, cease support for separatists and respect Ukraine’s sovereignty.
