Denmark to send $250 million worth of military aid to Ukraine
Denmark will provide Ukraine with the biggest military aid package to date worth $250 million, the Danish Broadcasting Corporation reported on May 2, 2023, citing Danish Defense Minister Troels Lund Poulsen. The package will include mine clearance machines, ammunition, field bridges, and funds for air defense to Ukraine, according to the report.
“The donation can hopefully help to ensure that Ukraine gets an even better starting point for becoming master of its own house,” Danish Defense Minister Troels Lund Poulsen said, as quoted by the DR, referring to Ukraine’s upcoming counteroffensive. The package means Denmark will “help the Ukrainian air defense; it’s in demand,” he added. Denmark has so far disbursed 11 billion kroner ($1.6 billion) of help to Ukraine, according to the DR.
