The Swedish parliament, the Riksdag, has approved a new aid package to Ukraine worth SEK 3.25 billion (approximately 270 million euros).
According to Yevropeiska Pravda, this was reported on the Riksdag's website.
According to the report, Kyiv will receive ammunition and spare parts worth up to SEK 1.1 billion (approximately EUR 90 million) and trucks and demining equipment worth up to SEK 2.15 billion (approximately EUR 180 million).
The Riksdag also decided to authorize the government to sell AMRAAM air-to-air missiles to the United States, which will then be transferred to Ukraine.
This decision means that the Swedish state budget's defense and crisis preparedness item will increase by SEK 545 million (EUR 46 million) in 2023.
