Last week Britain has begun supplying Ukraine with new light anti-tank weapons in response to “the increasingly threatening behaviour from Russia”, the defence secretary, Ben Wallace, has announced.
The ratcheting up of military support comes as the Kremlin continues to increase its troop deployment by moving forces into Belarus, which borders Ukraine to the north, and is considered the most likely route for any invasion.
“We have taken the decision to supply Ukraine with light anti-armour defensive weapons systems,”
Wallace told the Commons on Monday January 17, adding that “a small number” of British troops would provide training to help Kyiv’s forces in using them. The defence secretary insisted the arms sales were intended to be defensive, although the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, has recently complained about other Nato members selling modern weapons to Ukraine.
Britain is leading the way with military support for Ukraine. This week anti-tank weapons were flown out to Ukraine to help them fight against a potential Russian invasion. The UK Foreign Office has been told to prepare for “crisis mode”. Russia reacted furiously to news the UK’s military had shipped thousands of anti-tank missiles to Ukraine. Commenting on the news, Russia’s London embassy tweeted:
“It is crystal clear that #UK shipment of lethal weapons to #Ukraine will only fuel the crisis and increase tensions.”
What we have long looked for is a military provocation (a push) of the king of the south (UK/US) against Putin (Gog – ruler of Russia).
Daniel 11:40 says it happens “at the time of the end”. The word “push” is the word to “gore” as a goat would with its horn. Britain is starting to military provoke Russia – we are close to the end….
And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: (Daniel 11:40)
