The UK has provided a range of non-lethal equipment to Ukraine. I refer the hon. Member to the statement I made on 6 March 2015 (Official Report, column 83WS) and the statement made on 17 October 2014 (Official Report, column 55WS). I regularly discuss support to Ukraine with NATO and EU counterparts and expect to do so at the next NATO Defence Ministers meeting on 24-25 June. Officials continue to engage with the Ukraine Ministry of Defence and Armed Forces on further requirements including the provision of training and wider support.
