Denmark donates $833 mln military aid package to Ukraine

Denmark will contribute to Ukraine a package worth 5.8 billion Danish crowns ($833 million), comprising tanks, infantry combat vehicles, tank ammo, and anti-aircraft weapons, the defense minister said on Tuesday.

According to the ministry, the whole money will be disbursed in three rounds: 4.3 billion this year, 1.4 billion in 2024, and 52 million in 2025.

“After more than a year and a half of war, we have almost exhausted our defense stocks. Therefore, we are now looking into more targeted joint procurement and international cooperation, tailored to Ukraine’s needs here and now,” foreign minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen said in a statement.

This is the twelfth and largest donation package Denmark has sent to Ukraine since Russia invaded the country in February 2022, the ministry added.
