South Korea will send non-lethal military supplies to Ukraine amid Russia's full-scale invasion of the country, the U.S.-based CNN television news channel quoted South Korean Defense Ministry spokesperson Boo Seung-chan as saying at a briefing on March 15.

The supplies will be worth about $800,000 and include bulletproof helmets, tents, blankets, bedspreads, non-perishable military food kits, and first aid kits and medicine, a ministry official confirmed.

Delivery logistics have not yet been finalized, Boo added.

Earlier in February, South Korea ruled out military deployments or lethal support for Ukraine.
