Finland to send more defence materiel to Ukraine
Finland will send more defence materiel assistance to Ukraine, said the Ministry of Defence in a press release on Thursday.
The President on Wednesday approved the government proposal in this regard.
The ministry, however, will not disclose detailed information on the content of the assistance, manner of delivery or schedule to ensure that the assistance reaches its destination.
Following Russia's military aggression, Ukraine has requested materiel assistance from the EU and NATO Member States.
Both Ukraine's needs and the resources of the Defence Forces have been taken into account when deciding on Finland's additional assistance.
The decision to provide assistance to Ukraine will not put our national defence capability at risk.
Earlier on 28 February, Finland decided to send arms and military equipment to Ukraine.
