Denmark to send additional $336 million to Ukraine this year in military aid

COPENHAGEN (Reuters) – Denmark will increase its military support for Ukraine by 2.3 billion Danish Crowns ($336.65 million) this year, the Danish defence ministry said on Friday.

The donation comes on top of the 5.4 billion the Nordic country had allocated to a fund set up for military donations to Ukraine.

Parliament also agreed to allocate an additional 23.5 billion crowns between 2025 and 2027 for the fund.

NATO-member Denmark will include the funds donated to Ukraine in its pledge to reach defence spending of 2% of GDP.
