Estonia sends more weapons to Ukraine and supports the training of Ukrainian soldiers in the UK
Estonia will increase its defense aid to Ukraine, support the training of Ukrainian soldiers in the UK and send a field hospital to Ukraine in cooperation with Germany, the Ministry of Defense announced.
“The fighting in Ukraine continues to be intense. Although more and more western weaponry is reaching the frontlines, our moral responsibility is to continue supporting Ukraine. They are fighting for our shared values, and if there is anything we can send to Ukrainians, we have to do so,” said Minister of Defense Hanno Pevkur.
Ukrainian forces have asked for additional support from the Allies in training their personnel and Pevkur said Estonia could assist.
“The Estonian Defense Forces are especially proficient in training reservists for combat in an intense conventional war against a larger adversary – meaning, precisely for the kind of war that Ukraine is in right now,” said Pevkur.
