Britain said on Friday it planned to supply Ukraine's army with a package of non-lethal military equipment to help it defend itself against what Defence Secretary Michael Fallon called "Russia's aggression." The equipment, worth 850,000 pounds, will be gifted to Ukraine in the coming weeks in response to a request from Kiev. The package includes first aid kits, night vision goggles, laptops, helmets and GPS units. Britain said last month it was sending 75 military personnel to Ukraine, where violence has continued despite a ceasefire agreement, to help train its army, and would not rule out providing arms at some point in the future.
