British politician Ben Wallace on Thursday confirmed his resignation as defense minister. He informed about this in a letter to British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.
Wallace has been heading the military department since 2019. It was under his leadership that decisions were made related to supporting Kyiv in response to a full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine. Britain is considered one of the leaders among Western countries helping Ukraine.
Ben Wallace announced his intention to leave the post last month.
