Sweden announces the largest military aid package for Ukraine

May 29, 2024

This is reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to Sydsvenskan.


Today's package of military aid will be the sixteenth from Sweden since the start of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine. The money, which will be included in the supplementary budget, will, among other things, strengthen Ukraine's air defense.

For example, Sweden will provide an ASC 890 radar reconnaissance and control aircraft, which will give Ukraine "a completely new radar reconnaissance and combat control capability against targets in the air and at sea" and strengthen its ability to engage targets in the long term. The aircraft also come with training and technical equipment.

In addition, Sweden will donate its entire fleet of 302 armored personnel carriers to support the formation of new brigades of the Ukrainian army. The package also includes an Rb 99 fighter jet, as well as artillery ammunition and resources to maintain the previously transferred equipment.

Taking into account the funds presented today, Sweden has already provided support to Ukraine in the amount of SEK 43.5 billion.
