Ukraine to buy British minesweepers, missile weapons - ambassador.

Ukraine will purchase two British minesweeping ships, missile weapons and modern technology to protect its coast from the mine threat.

According to Ukrinform, Ukraine's Ambassador to the United Kingdom Vadym Prystaiko stated this in an interview with the Dom television channel.

"Four areas that will strengthen the capacity of our navy will be implemented [as part of the agreement with the United Kingdom], and this will be made public soon. I am convinced that two ships will be purchased in the near future, and they will immediately join the Navy. Work will begin on the construction of two naval ports and on the construction of smaller ships in Ukraine and the United Kingdom," Prystaiko said.

According to the ambassador, the first warship for Ukraine will be built in Britain, with modern technologies to be transferred to Ukrainian shipyards.

Prystaiko specified that the two ships that will be purchased in the UK are minesweepers that will help protect the coast from the mine threat.

"It is very important that we will get missile weapons that will really strengthen our capabilities at sea," he said.
