In 2016 surplus equipment was supplied to the Ukrainian Armed Forces in addition to other, purchased items.
More recently, when President Poroshenko visited the UK in April 2017, he presented the Prime Minister with a list of Ukrainian equipment requirements, seeking UK assistance where possible. In light of this request, the head of the Defence Equipment Sales Authority, visited Ukraine to clarify Ukrainian requirements and establish the most appropriate UK surplus assets.
A Ukrainian delegation visited the UK from 28 November to 1 December and reviewed a range of land and maritime equipment. The Ukrainians are now considering their options.
