Denmark will provide Ukraine with a $142 million military aid package, which will include small arms ammunition, heavy machine guns, anti-tank mines, and air defense missiles, Danish Defense Ministry said in a message on its website on March 15.

Acting Danish Defense Minister Troels Lund Poulsen thanked the Danish parliament for the decision to transfer additional aid to help Ukraine repel the Russian invasion.

“Ukraine is short of ammunition, so the donation package contains materials that Ukraine has very specifically requested,” said Poulsen.
