Task Force HIRST was set up in December 2023 to develop a new strategy that will build a sustained defence industrial partnership between the UK and Ukraine. The funding allocation is yet to be determined. Task Force HIRST activity to date has been funded from existing budgets for support to Ukraine, as the activity is complimentary to the objectives of those initiatives.
