Denmark to provide Ukraine with a new military aid package worth almost $250 million: security agreement also signed

This should be seen as part of building a bridge to Ukraine's membership in the EU and NATO.

Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen has announced a $247.4 million military aid package for Ukraine. She also said that her country guarantees security support for Ukraine for the next 10 years as part of a bilateral agreement.

This was reported by Ekstra Bladet. Frederiksen noted that her country had reached an agreement with Ukraine on Denmark's security commitments. This is part of international efforts to secure the future and support Ukraine.

"We are taking on security commitments that are valid for ten years. It will be expensive. But freedom has a price. I am convinced that we are at the beginning of a new era," she said.

The DKK 1.7 billion aid package for Ukraine announced today is the 15th that Denmark has sent to Kyiv. It includes, among other things, 15,000 artillery shells, said Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister Troels Lund Poulsen.

"We have to be on the right side of history. We have been there for the last two years since the beginning of the war. And we continue to do so. Russia has modernized its armed forces so that they can threaten NATO. That is why we are delivering a new aid package to help Ukraine continue its fight," he emphasized.

"Commitment to Ukraine's Security" is a principle put forward by the G7 countries, which is now supported by 32 countries.

The Danish-Ukrainian Fund is funded until 2028, and so the new security commitment obliges the government to continue its support in the future.

The promise of ten years of support should also be seen as part of building a bridge to Ukraine's membership in the EU and NATO.

The agreement will help support Ukraine's ability to defend itself against Russia, as well as deter future Russian attacks.

Under the agreement, Ukraine is committed to implementing necessary reforms aimed at developing democracy and fighting corruption.

Earlier, Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said that her country was ready to transfer all available artillery to the Ukrainian army. She called on her partners to provide Ukraine with air defense equipment and ammunition.
