First Danish tanks ready for Ukraine in May

First Danish tanks ready for Ukraine in May

5 billion and counting
Initially, the tanks will be used to train Ukrainian troops, while the agreement also includes ammunition packages and spare parts.

The joint initiative includes Germany and the Netherlands, but other countries are welcome to join later.

Since the start of Russia’s invasion, Denmark has donated DKK 5 billion in weapons and equipment to Ukraine. See the image below for an overview of Denmark’s aid to Ukraine.

Most weapons
In addition to the tanks, Denmark’s key donations include Cæsar howitzers and hundreds of millions of kroner in aid to the International Fund for Ukraine’s weapons fund.

The vast majority of Danish aid (about 70 percent) relates to weapons, while about 20 percent involves aid via NATO and to the International Fund for Ukraine.

Non-lethal equipment, such as sleeping bags, clothing and protective gear, accounted for nearly 10 percent.

However, Denmark is still in doubt as to whether they will send fighter jets to Ukraine.
