The assistance includes the creation of a first-of-its-kind fund for defense companies that will work to deliver weapons to the Ukrainian Defense Forces as soon as possible, invest in the country's defense industry, and purchase weapons from other countries.

They are part of a new package of assistance to Ukraine from the Australian government," the statement says.

Such boats, which can perform tasks in both rivers and the open sea, will help Ukraine.

"The 830R can be deployed quickly and requires minimal maintenance, which ensures greater operational readiness when Ukrainian forces need it," said the CEO of Sentinel Boats.
