Luxembourg allocates 15% of its defense budget to support the Ukrainian army
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy has said that the Luxembourg government has allocated 15% of the funds from its defense budget to support the Ukrainian army.
“Luxembourg has been constantly helping us. If we talk about assistance regarding the capacity of our army, then 15% of the entire defense budget,” Zelenskyy said at a briefing with Xavier Bettel in Kyiv on June 21, 2022.
“If every state in the world allocated approximately such budgets, then, I think, we would have already won,” he stressed.
Zelensky also thanked the Prime Minister of Luxembourg for his help. “Since the first days of this war, we have been in constant contact. This is absolutely true,” the president said.
