The British defense minister has called for an increase in military spending.

“Report” informs that Ben Wallace said this on the “Sky News” TV channel.

The minister said that the British government should increase the funds allocated to the military to counter the potential threat.

According to his information, currently the country’s defense expenditure is 2.28% of the GDP.

“According to forecasts, in 2026, our indicator will be below 2%. We will fall from first place to eighth place in Europe,” Wallace warned.

The defense minister noted that Great Britain and other Western countries need better weapons to fight drones and protect airspace.
