On Armed Forces day I just want to say thank you to all the men and women serving the UK across the world and to all the veterans who served this country so well in the past. Your professionalism and dedication to duty is an inspiration.
Welcome to #ArmedForcesDay 2022! Today we recognise the work of our Armed Forces and learn more about how they keep us safe. 🤝 🌍
As we come to the end of Armed Forces week and approach Armed Forces day in Scarborough we should remember the work our armed forces did during Op Pitting. Even after the evacuation ended we continue to work to get all those eligible, 1/2
In ceremonies to mark #ArmedForcesWeek, personnel who enabled the safe evacuation of thousands of vulnerable Afghans from Kabul last summer have been awarded medals in recognition of their service. 🏅
Defence Secretary @BWallaceMP presented medals at @UKStratCom this week.
🗓 Tomorrow in Washington, DC:
The @ScotsGuardsBand will play at the WWI Memorial, next to the White House at 2:45pm ET.
Come out for a free concert from the band that took part in Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee Trooping of the Colour ceremony. 🎶
So there is a lot of rubbish being spouted about the PM’s trip to Ukriane. 1. Firstly these trips are organised in total secrecy. Very few, and i mean very few, people know the dates and arrangements. Russia is still launching missile strikes right across Ukriane . 1/5
United against Russia's aggression: At today's meeting of #V4 + #UK defence ministers we strongly condemned war against #Ukraine & discussed assistance & next steps to contain this conflict. 🇸🇰🇨🇿🇭🇺🇵🇱 🤝 🇬🇧@BWallaceMP
Today, on the 40th anniversary of the end of the Falklands Conflict, we remember the 255 members of service personnel who died to protect the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands.
In 2019 Boris won with a majority of 80. He has delivered victories in seats we have never held before. On Covid, on Ukraine he has helped deliver a world leading response. He has my full confidence.
For those of us who have served in the Armed Forces during the reign of HM Queen Elizabeth it has been the greatest privilege to always know that, while Governments come and go, her leadership and example of duty and dedication has been a vital constant and inspiration.
Really why doesn’t everyone calm down? Boris is not going anywhere, will lead Conservatives into the next election and I see no convincing reason as to why he won’t win it.
In globally unstable times we are lucky to have a wonderful monarch who demonstrates to us all what duty means by her relentless service to our nation. #PlatinumJubilee
Spain is a close defence partner & NATO ally & will host next month’s @NATO Leaders’ Summit.
Defence Secretary @BWallaceMP met with his 🇪🇸 counterpart Margarita Robles Fernández today @Defensagob. They discussed defence cooperation & the importance of the NATO Alliance.
The Russian state systematically seeks to legitimise the war in Ukraine through distorting the narrative, by accusing others of the very actions they carry out.
Recognising this tactic can help to hold Russia to account and prevent the spread of disinformation.
We continue to deliver on our commitment to our Afghan relocation programme. To date we have relocated over 9,200 applicants and their dependents to the UK under the ARAP scheme. Latest figures also show that since the end of Op Pitting the MoD has helped 2,297 individuals 1/2
Oleksandr Zinchenko & Manchester City won Premier League: for #Ukraine too!

Nine years ago today Fusilier Lee Rigby was murdered as he left his barracks in south London.
Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones.

Slava Ukraini 🇺🇦 Good night. Well done. All our thoughts are with you!
Great to catch up with US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark A Milley @thejointstaff at the Pentagon @DeptofDefense
We discussed the implications of the war in Ukraine, early lessons learned - and new 🇺🇸🇬🇧opportunities.
I met with US @SecDef Lloyd for bilateral talks today at the Pentagon 🇬🇧🇺🇸 The best of Allies!
We discussed the next steps to help 🇺🇦Ukraine defend itself against Russian military aggression, as well as AUKUS and Nato
It was a pleasure welcoming @BWallaceMP back to the Pentagon. The Minister and I discussed ways to deepen our partnership, and I thanked him for the U.K.’s leadership in regards to aid to Ukraine. #WeAreNATO
I am delighted by the announcement from the British and Swedish Prime Ministers on a mutual security agreement. Through the JEF and bilateral partnerships my counterpart Peter Hultqvist @ForsvarsdepSv and I constantly work to strengthen UK-Swedish defence ties 🇸🇪🇬🇧@BorisJohnson
Pleased that today there are measures in the Queen’s Speech to address the legacy of the past in NI which delivers our commitment to veterans, by giving them the protections they deserve.

The first wedding dance of Viktor and Oksana in the Lviv hospital ward. Oksana, a 23-year-old nurse from Lysychansk, lost her legs on 27 March. Then Oksana had turned to warn Viktor of the danger, and within a second a Russian mine exploded under her https://www.facebook.com/euromaidanpress.en/videos/1581229688913724/
🇬🇧 Thousands of @BritishArmy troops are deploying across Europe for a series of planned exercises.

At @RamsteinAirBase in Germany, Defence Secretary @BWallaceMP met with leaders from more than 40 allied countries who came together in support of 🇺🇦 Ukraine.
They discussed the next steps to defend Ukraine from Russia’s illegal and unprovoked invasion.
Prevent is an opportunity to divert ppl from terrorism before they destroy lives. It's not a panacea, but a last chance to intervene and the alternative to doing nothing. It's not perfect, nor claims to be, and perseveres despite the insidious campaigns to derail it. https://twitter.com/BBCNewsnight/status/1450221000935813138
"We offer this voluntary service. If people decline it, there is nothing that the local authority can do to compel them to be part of this process."
Prevent coordinator @WillBaldet says however most people offered the Prevent programme want to take it on
I'm a lawyer.For me, the rule of Law has always been a paramount value.russia came to us with war, mass killings and looting. There is no Law for them. But, thanks to our partners,🇺🇦 has NLaw for them. This special kind of "love" will inevitably win.
thank to #AviatsiyaHalychyny
@BWallaceMP On the day of the great holiday of Easter I want to wish you Peace, Hope, Love and thank you for the #SupportUkraine ! Thanks for your unity, for believing in our victory and for helping to fight the aggressor. #StopRussianInvasion #UkraineUnderAttack #ArmUkraineNow
I understand the anger people feel about the fixed penalty notices being handed to the PM, Chx & others in Downing Street. So many made sacrifices during Covid, including many of our Armed Forces & their families. No doubt many will want to focus on this issue, but right now 1/2
Almost 200 mobile generators were received from Britain. We will increase the reliability of electricity supply to important facilities in case of disruptions due to enemy shelling.
@KwasiKwarteng, I am sincerely grateful for your support of Ukraine!
Today I met my friend President @ZelenskyyUa in Kyiv as a show of our unwavering support for the people of Ukraine.
We're setting out a new package of financial & military aid which is a testament of our commitment to his country's struggle against Russia’s barbaric campaign.
This is an extraordinary act of of solidarity from Slovakia to Ukraine. S-300 will integrate well into Ukraine’s existing air defences and will cause real problems for Russian pilots. 🇸🇰🇺🇦 https://twitter.com/visegrad24/status/1512382632591515648
SCOOP & BREAKING NEWS:
Slovakia has now delivered its S-300 long-range SAM missile defense system to UA!
Days ago, Visegrad24 received this video of the transfer from a railway worker but didn’t publish it since it wasn’t public news.
Slovak media confirmed the news 1h ago⬇️
🇬🇧🤝🇪🇪 #Estonia and #UnitedKingdom set to spearhead launch of the @NATO Defence Innovation Accelerator for the North Atlantic (DIANA), a transatlantic initative including private sector and academia. @DefenceHQ @MFAestonia @EstonianGovt @EconMinEstonia
In support of our Ukrainian friends, Canada deployed two @RCAF_ARC CC-130J aircraft to Europe in early March.
Since then, our air crews have transported over one million pounds of military aid bound for Ukraine from Canada and our allies. 🇨🇦🇺🇦
Today marks 73 years since the founding of @NATO. The United Kingdom was a founding member of NATO and the alliance remains a cornerstone of our defence. #WeAreNATO
We knew Putin’s invasion plans included summary executions by his military and intelligence services. The reports of execution-style killings of civilians emerging from liberated areas are horrifying and chilling. https://twitter.com/trussliz/status/1510609394597310469
We must hold to account those responsible for the appalling acts committed by Russian troops in Bucha, Irpin and elsewhere in Ukraine.
Putin’s regime will not be allowed to cover up their involvement in these atrocities.
Today's the Day! Gabriel's #bowlforukraine has gone live! After the tsunami of #twitterlove that he received last weekend his Instagram account clarkie_woodwork went from 6 followers to 227,000! He's had a week of interviews and there's even an article in today's Times! 1/5
