The Netherlands announces more than 200 million euros for Ukraine

Apr 19, 2024

The Dutch government has urgently provided another 200 million euros in military aid to Ukraine.


This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Defense.

Most of the amount - 150 million euros - will be used to finance Germany's initiative to purchase long-range air defense systems. Another 60 million euros will be allocated for the transfer of short-range air defense systems.

The Netherlands will also support Estonia's plan to rapidly supply Ukraine with artillery ammunition from its existing stockpile. The amount of funds allocated for this initiative has not yet been disclosed.

"Ukraine really needs air defense equipment and artillery ammunition. The situation may become critical. The resources to which the Netherlands is now contributing are already on the European continent and will arrive in Ukraine as soon as possible. We have to do everything possible to support Ukraine," said Dutch Minister of Defense Keesa Ollongren.
