Jul 10, 2024

The Dutch Ministry of Defense on Wednesday, July 10, announced the allocation of an additional 300 million euros for the purchase of ammunition for F-16 fighters, which will soon be transferred to Ukraine.

This is stated in the report of the Ministry.

The additional funding will complement the 150 million euros already allocated by the Netherlands to equip the F-16s that will go to Ukraine and will be used to purchase equipment directly from industry.


"With the ammunition we will purchase, F-16s can help repel Russian attacks. Putin's aggression knows no bounds, so our support must continue at full speed," commented Dutch Defense Minister Ruben Brekelmans.

"By purchasing this additional ammunition for the F-16, we want to send a message to Moscow that NATO Allies will continue to stand by Ukraine. Russia must not win this war, it is also in our security interests," he added.
