LONDON (Sputnik) - The United Kingdom has supplied Ukraine with several thousands of light anti-tank missiles, UK Minister for the Armed Forces James Heappey told the LBC radio broadcaster on Wednesday.

The minister noted that Ukrainians are a proud sovereign nation and they are ready to fight for every inch of their country.

London said on Tuesday that the UK military had airlifted a batch of light anti-tank weapons to Ukraine for self-defence.

Earlier this week, the US and British officials made statements about increasing arms deliveries to Ukraine, including shoulder-launched anti-aircraft missile systems. Russia criticised the move, saying it will make the situation even worse. The West has been speculating about Russia's alleged plans to invade Ukraine, a claim Moscow has strongly denied.
