Videos have surfaced online reportedly showing UK-made armored vehicles in service of the Ukrainian Armed forces donated by the British government to fight Russian troops.

Several videos, which were posted on social media, show a recently arrived in Ukraine Husky tactical support vehicle and Wolfhound heavily armoured patrol vehicle.

UK Defence Minister Jeremy Quin has previously highlighted the delivery of Wolfhounds, which help to protect troops while they carry out patrols in high-risk areas, alongside Stormer vehicles fitted with Starstreak launchers.
