Finland’s defense ministry is sending anti-aircraft weapons and ammunition to Ukraine as part of its latest military aid package to the country.
The President of the Republic decided on the matter on 25 May 2023 on the proposal of the Government.
This is the 16th package of defence materiel to be delivered by Finland to Ukraine. It includes anti-aircraft weapons and ammunition, among other items. Replacing the defence materiel capabilities in this package will cost Finland an estimated €109 million.
“Finland continues to support Ukraine together with our international partners. The total value of the defence materiel packages delivered by Finland to Ukraine is now €1.1 billion,” says Minister of Defence Antti Kaikkonen.
