The Danish Ministry of Defense has signed an agreement with Norway on the joint transfer of 8,000 artillery shells to Ukraine.
This was announced by the Danish Ministry of Defense on Monday.
"Ukrainians are still in dire need of ammunition for their fight for freedom against Russia. Together with other EU and NATO countries, Denmark is preparing various military assistance. Our cooperation with Norway is an important example of this," said Danish Defense Minister Trolls Lund Poulsen.
The cooperation envisages that the Danish defense industry will assemble Norwegian 155mm artillery shells with compatible Danish powder charges and fuse tubes into full-fledged artillery shells. They will then be transferred to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
According to the first assessment of the Danish Ministry of Defense, the ammunition will be able to be used by Danish CAESAR artillery systems, which the Danish Parliament decided to transfer to Ukraine earlier this year.
It is expected that the shells will be transferred together with the systems.
