Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said the United Kingdom will supply Ukraine with more than 500 generators.
The generators, BBC reports, will provide energy for essential services, including shelters and hospitals. They will also supply enough energy to power 20,000 homes.
This announcement came after Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky made a direct request to the UK for the generators.
Johnson said the generators will help ease power cuts being experienced across Ukraine. He added that it will also “help keep vital services running so the people of Ukraine can continue to defend their country”.
