Ukraine hopes that Denmark will join the international effort to supply Ukraine with additional fighter jets, Ukrainian PM Denys Shmyhal said on March 22.

Following a meeting with a delegation from the Foreign Policy Council of the Danish Parliament, PM acknowledged that Denmark has already made a significant contribution to Ukraine’s defense.

“I am thankful for the formation of the ninth weapons package for Ukraine; we appreciate the Danish partners joining the tank coalition,” Shmyhal said in a Telegram post.

“We are counting on Denmark to become part of the air coalition.”

The PM added that post-war reconstruction projects were also discussed at the meeting.

“Denmark took patronage over Mykolaiv, and the first project has already been implemented – restoring water supply to the city,” said Shmyhal.

“In addition, business stimulus programs are being considered, as part of the Ukraine Support Fund, which amounts to DKK 7 billion ($1.02 billion). This will help incentivize Danish companies to help rebuild Ukraine.”

Ukraine’s Air Force head, Lt. Gen. Mykola Oleshchuk, called on colleagues from NATO countries to create an ‘aviation coalition’ and step up efforts to provide the Armed Forces of Ukraine with modern multi-role jet fighters.
