Finland Announces Largest Military Package for Ukraine

Thursday, 17 November 2022

Finland will hand over another package of defence materiel to Ukraine with the value of EUR 55.6 million.

The decision was made by the President of Finland on November 17, 2022 at the suggestion of the government, reports the Ministry of Defence of Finland.

"This will be the tenth package of defence materiel to be delivered to Ukraine, with the value of EUR 55.6 million. The combined value of all defence materiel packages submitted by Finland to Ukraine is now EUR 160.4 million," the ministry announced.

"Ukraine continues to need support in defending its territory. The range of defence materiel now being sent is largest so far," said Minister of Defence Antti Kaikkonen.

For operational reasons and to ensure that the delivery reaches its destination, more detailed information on the content of the assistance, manner of delivery or schedule will not be provided.

When deciding on the provision of additional assistance, both the needs of Ukraine and the resources of the Finnish Defenсe Forces have been taken into account.

As reported, Sweden will hand over air defence systems to Ukraine, but for security reasons it cannot say which ones.
