The Danish Ministry of Defence has announced the allocation of a ninth package of military aid to Ukraine, amounting to one billion Danish kroner, or approximately EUR 130 million. The aid package includes ammunition for small arms, heavy machine guns, anti-tank mines, and missiles for air defence systems, among other things.
Additionally, Denmark will provide Ukraine with 21 demining robots, 15 generators for military needs, 15,000 sets of clothing to protect against rain, nine mobile heavy equipment repair stations, and six hangar tents. The funds for this aid package were taken from the fund for civil, military, and economic aid to Ukraine, which was announced on the same day.
Over the past few years, the total amount of military aid to Kyiv from Copenhagen has reached almost five billion kroner, or approximately EUR 650 million.
The Danish armed forces have started preparations for the free transfer of the equipment to Ukraine as soon as possible. In related news, the acting Danish Defence Minister, Troels Lund Poulsen, has announced that Ukraine will receive Danish Leopard 1 tanks during the spring.
