BREAKING: We Must Side with Ukraine, Do Our Best to Support It: UK Defence Secretary
On 21 December 2018, Ukraine's Defence Minister Stepan Poltorak met with Gavin Williamson, UK Secretary of State for Defence.
The sides discussed support for Ukraine in the light of Russia's open aggression.
"We must side with Ukraine, and we must do our best to support Ukraine at such times. This is the reason why I as the Secretary of State for Defence ordered the HMS Echo to come to Odesa on December 19th," Mr Williamson was quoted as saying.
The defence ministers also met with families of Ukrainian servicemen illegally detained by the Russian Federation in the Kerch Strait.
