Earlier, the Sea King helicopters were being used by the British Air Forces and the British Navy. The latter stopped using the last Sea King in 2018.

Ukrainian specialists were trained in Britain to operate and maintain the helicopters that will be used for search and rescue operations.

In November, it became known that Great Britain will provide Ukraine with helicopters for the first time, three Sea King items in total. The first one (or ones) of them are already in Ukraine.
