The Dutch government has allocated an additional 2 billion euros for military assistance to Ukraine in 2024.
This was stated by the head of the Dutch Ministry of Defense, Keesa Ollongren, as quoted by Reuters.
According to her, this decision means that support for Ukraine in the war against Russia remains unwavering.
The funds are part of a broader aid package that the Netherlands will provide to Ukraine next year, which includes an initial 102 million euros for reconstruction and humanitarian aid, to be increased throughout the year if necessary.
Ollongren noted that with the latest package, the total amount of support provided by the Netherlands to Ukraine is about 7.5 billion euros.
"For me, the most important thing is that next year we will provide an additional 2 billion euros in military aid. "This will maintain our support for Ukraine and ensure its continuity, which is critical for Ukraine," she said, referring to the November 22 elections in the Netherlands that will change the composition of the government coalition.
