Denmark Pledges $313 Million in New Military Aid to Ukraine

Denmark has announced the allocation of its 17th military aid package for Ukraine, valued at 2.2 billion Danish kroner (approximately $313 million).

The Government of Denmark has allocated 200 million Danish kroner ($28.5 million) to purchase Ukrainian weapons and military equipment for the Armed Forces of Ukraine directly from Ukrainian manufacturers. This marks the first-ever decision of its kind, sending a signal to other allies to procure weapons for the needs of the Ukrainian Armed Forces directly from Ukrainian manufacturers. This has been a request from the Ukrainian government to its allies in recent months.

The package also includes funds for bolstering maritime capabilities, acquiring ammunition and drones, and supporting the production of missile components.

"I express my gratitude to Denmark and Defense Minister Troels Lund Poulsen personally for their unwavering support and strengthening of Ukraine's defense capabilities," stated Ukrainian Defense Minister Rustem Umerov.

"During my visit to several Ukrainian defense industry enterprises in Kyiv in March, it became clear that there is significant potential for future cooperation that can supply Ukraine with the necessary equipment to change the situation on the battlefield," remarked Danish Defense Minister Troels Lund Poulsen.
