Denmark’s New Aid Package Secures Air Defense and Artillery for Ukraine

The Danish government announced a new DKK 5.6 billion (approximately USD 800 million) aid package for Ukraine, focusing on air defense, artillery, and direct investments in the Ukrainian defense industry. The package, the 18th from Denmark, allocates approximately DKK 2.4 billion (USD 350 million) to bolster Ukraine’s air defense capabilities and provides additional funding for artillery pieces, grenades, and anti-tank mines.

“We have today informed the Foreign Policy Committee about a new aid package for Ukraine,” said Danish Defense Minister Troels Lund Poulsen. “This package focuses on air defense and artillery, which are crucial for Ukraine’s defense. Additionally, we are setting aside funds for direct investments in the Ukrainian defense industry and the upcoming donation of F-16 fighter jets, scheduled for this summer.”

Denmark has been a steadfast supporter of Ukraine since the onset of the Russian invasion, providing a wide range of military and humanitarian assistance. This includes weapons, ammunition, financial aid, and medical supplies.

“The Ukrainian people are demonstrating remarkable courage and determination in the face of Russian aggression,” said Poulsen. “We are proud to support them in their fight for their country.”

Denmark’s total military aid to Ukraine now amounts to 70% of its own defense budget. The country has also donated all of its 19 CAESAR artillery systems and 19 F-16 aircraft, expected to arrive in Ukraine in the coming months.

This new aid package underscores Denmark’s ongoing commitment to helping Ukraine defend itself against Russian aggression.
