"We will not tire and will support Ukraine today, tomorrow and in the coming months," said British defence minister Wallace.
On August 11, representatives of countries that support Ukraine gathered in Copenhagen. Reuters reports that the conference participants gathered to develop a plan for long-term military support for Ukraine. The discussion of the issues and the course of the Russian-Ukrainian war ended with the approval of a new package of financial assistance to Ukraine. According to official reports, the Ukrainian side will receive funding of €1.5 billion.
Funds can be spent on arms, missiles, and ammunition. The money also provides for an increase in the production of weapons to combat Russian aggression and to train soldiers. Ministers of Defence of the Czech Republic, Poland, and Slovakia have already indicated their readiness to produce military equipment. In particular, countries may engage in the production of artillery systems and ammunition. The assistance package is also designed to clear mined areas.
The Ukrainian side is pleasantly surprised by the outcome and confirms that it had good expectations about this meeting. Important for Ukraine is the fact that 26 countries participated in the conference. Including Bulgaria, Japan, Georgia, South Korea, and Canada. The meeting was attended by 13 defense ministers. The president of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy also addressed the conference in Copenhagen.
