Finland handed over 22 aid packages to Ukraine and will not limit itself to this

Tuesday, 27 February 2024

Finnish President Sauli Niinistö, who is leaving office, has promised that his country will continue to increase military aid to Kyiv.

According to Finnish Broadcasting Company Yle, Niinistö said after informal summit of about 20 states that Finland has provided Ukraine with 22 aid packages and will not limit itself to this.

He believes that the meeting in Paris regarding Ukrainian support was productive.

"We are increasing aid. Primarily, of course, military aid. This especially concerns ammunition and air defence assets. Everyone agreed that we need to act as we did at the beginning of 2022 when decisions were made in a timely manner and very quickly," Niinistö stated.

Alexander Stubb, the winner of the presidential elections in Finland, will officially take office on 2 March, replacing Sauli Niinistö.

Stubb said that there can be no political relations with Russia until the war in Ukraine is over.
