On June 30, the Danish Ministry of defence announced the preparation of a defence assistance package for Ukraine: missiles for air defence, vehicles for bomber robots, shells and ammunition for artillery for the Ukrainian army. The stake is valued at kr130.000.000 ((1kr = $0.15 ≈ $191 billion).
"It is absolutely essential that we continue to support Ukraine. This is a large and important donation, which we, among other things, are based on the wishes and needs of Ukraine, and which should support Ukraine's ongoing defensive struggle against the Russian invading forces," acting minister of defence Troels Lund Poulsen.
"Today's donation package sends an important signal that Denmark will stand by Ukraine for as long as necessary," foreign minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen.
In addition, Denmark allocated kr3.000.000.000 to participate in joint purchases of artillery ammunition with the EU.
The total donation amount is sponsored by the Danish Foundation Ukraine and needs final confirmation from the State Finance Committee.
