This is reported by the Defense Ministry of Finland.
“What is at stake in Ukraine's defense struggle is the security environment outlook on Europe and Finland in the current decade. Together with our allies, we remain unwavering in our commitment to support Ukrainians,” says Minister of Defence Antti Häkkänen.
This constitutes the 20th package of defense equipment provided to Ukraine. Finland estimates the cost of replacing the defense equipment included in this package to be approximately EUR 100 million.
