SIR – While Ukraine calls for more military hardware, the West justifies what it’s prepared to donate by describing it as ‘defensive’.
So the anti-tank missile is acceptable, while a fighter jet is seen as provocative.
While fighting for our lives in World War Two, the US gave us what we asked for, to be repaid at a later date.
This aid was invaluable in the early days and without doubt evened the odds.
Eighty years later, we have another war in Europe and this time it’s Ukraine calling for help.
So, let’s give them what they need and sort out any bill later.
