Ukraine news – live: UK sends helicopters ‘for the first time’ to aid Kyiv in war against Russia

Britain will now send helicopters to Ukraine for the first time since the war began, the British defence ministry has said.

Defence secretary Ben Wallace said it will be the first time piloted aircraft are being sent to the war-torn nation since Russia’s invasion in February this year.

This comes as Volodymyr Zelensky confirmed that the situation on the battle frontlines has not changed but his troops are bolstering their positions in Luhansk.

Elsewhere, a newborn baby has been killed in a Russian missile strike on a maternity hospital in Zaporizhzhia oblast, regional governor Oleksandr Starukh said today.

The infant is the latest casualty in the Russian invasion of Ukraine which has now passed nine months and is heading into a harsh winter, with Russian forces deliberately knocking out a majority of the country’s power grid.

Much of Ukraine has been covered in snow over the past week as Mr Zelensky warned that the country does not have enough power supply to meet the existing demand.
