British Sea King helicopter has arrived in Ukraine, said Oleksii Reznikov, Ukrainian Defense Minister on Twitter, APA reports citing Ukrinform.
“Sea King from the UK has arrived in its new kingdom near the Black Sea in Ukraine! It is a strong reinforcement for the Ukrainian Navy. Our cooperation will continue to increase,” he wrote.
Reznikov thanked British Defence Secretary Ben Wallace, noting “together, we will secure the seas and lands across all of Europe”.
As reported, in November 2022, British Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said Britain would send three Sea King helicopters to Ukraine. In total, Great Britain trained 10 crews of Ukrainian pilots.
The Sea King was primarily designed for performing anti-submarine warfare.
