Estonia to provide Ukraine with the largest military aid package
Estonia will provide Ukraine with the largest military aid package to date. With it, Estonia’s military assistance to Ukraine is increasing to €370 million, or just over 1% of Estonia’s GDP, ERR reports.
According to ERR’s information, this package will include dozens of 155 mm and 122 mm howitzers and military trucks and thousands of shells to use with them, as well as more than 100 Carl-Gustaf anti-tank recoilless rifles and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition.
“If Ukraine falls, freedom is in danger elsewhere in the world as well. By helping Ukraine defend its independence, we are defending all countries’ right to freedom and democracy, including Estonia’s,” Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas said. “With today’s decision, we are sending arms to Ukraine that they need the most.”
