I have sponsored Early Day Motion 501, titled “Tanks, vehicles and aircraft for Ukraine”. 

This EDM applauds the Ukrainian resistance to the Russian invasion and condemns the delays and obstruction of aid, which contributed to the fall of the city of Adviivka.

The Motion also recognises the danger to Ukraine posed by populists and the far right in Europe and the USA and notes that the UK must play a part in organising an urgent increase in aid to enable Ukrainians to free their entire country.

The Motion further condemns the fact that 1044 vehicles and 48 fixed-wing aircraft have been disposed of via sale or auction by the Ministry of Defence since the invasion, and calls for the following: 

“For all such equipment to be gifted to Ukraine; suggests that the 65 Challenger 2 Tanks not due for upgrade be donated to Ukraine and that all the FV107 Scimitar vehicles be gifted to Ukraine; further notes that the 625 Warrior vehicles will be retired by the end of 2030 and suggests that the fleet be gifted to Ukraine in each tranche set for disposal, that the 26 Typhoon Tranche 1 aircraft due to leave service be gifted to Ukraine with training of Ukrainian pilots and that those Chinook airframes due to be retired be gifted to Ukraine; and further calls for the gifting of Python Minefield Breaching Systems, of remotely operated systems, and of Trojan Armoured Engineer Vehicle to Ukraine, recognising in this difficult time this package of aid will greatly assist the morale and resistance of Ukraine and encourage international partners to unlock greater aid.”
