The government of Denmark and Norway launched a joint initiative to help Kyiv. The countries united for the transfer of 8.000 shells to the front line for the self-propelled artillery installation Caesar. The Ministry of defence of Denmark reports that the country's enterprises will be the first to start preparing shells for Ukraine. Later, the concerns of Norway will join the initiative. Therefore, additional batches of artillery shells will be assembled using components produced in 2 countries. The acting minister of defence of Denmark Troels Lund Poulsen explained this decision by the need of Ukraine in its opposition to Russian offensives. Therefore, he wants cooperation with Norway to become an example for other European states of Kyiv's support.
The president of Ukraine has already confirmed the information and gratitude to all governments for their support. He stated that timely military support helps to keep the line of defence and bring victory over the invaders closer.
"I am grateful to the Danish and Norwegian governments led by prime ministers of Denmark Mette Frederiksen and Norway Jonas Gahr Store for the joint initiative to transfer to Ukraine an additional batch of artillery shells," Volodymyr Zelenskyy wrote on Twitter.
Recall that recently EU leaders approved a joint project to purchase and supply shells to help Ukraine.
