Details: Sunak denied that British military instructors will be deployed to Ukraine in the near future, saying that the plans are “not [for] the here and now”.

“I think there has been some misreporting about this.”

Sunak believes that Shapps was talking about the possibility of some training in Ukraine being possible “one day in the future”.

“But that’s something for the long term, not the here and now…What we are doing is training Ukrainians. We’re doing that here in the UK. It’s something that everyone should be proud of because it’s making an enormous difference,” he stressed.

Sunak also said that British troops will not be sent to fight in the current conflict.
