UK appoints Grant Shapps as new Defense Minister

Downing Street announced that British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak appointed Grant Shapps as the Defense Minister on Thursday. 

Shapps, a conservative figure, who will celebrate his fifty-fifth birthday in September, had been serving as the Secretary of State for the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero since February.  

Instead of selecting a military-focused individual, Rishi Sunak chose someone with broad political experience for this significant portfolio, while the United Kingdom remains a major supporter of Kyiv in the face of the Russian invasion.
