Troels Lund Poulsen, the Danish Minister of Defense, highlighted that this aid reaffirms Denmark’s unwavering support for Ukraine in its fight for freedom. He mentioned that the aid package was devised after discussions with his Ukrainian counterpart, Rustem Umerov.

Lars Løkke Rasmussen, the Danish Minister of Foreign Affairs, stated, “Today’s assistance confirms that Ukraine can rely on Denmark’s steadfast support in its struggle for freedom.
