Friday, 3 November 2023

Kajsa Ollongren, Minister of Defence of the Netherlands, has promised to allocate EUR 500 million to Ukraine for ammunition after visiting Kharkiv and Kyiv. 

As reported by Het Parool, Ollongren said that the funds will be allocated by the middle of next year. The minister added that Ukraine is able to continue the struggle if it knows that "we continue to send such things".

The Netherlands promised to continue providing "a constant flow of certain ammunition", Ollongren said. "Ukrainians, whether on the contact line, in the city, or in the government, are still as combative as they were at the beginning [of the Russian full-scale invasion – ed.)," Ollongren said.
