According to AP, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced this on Tuesday, Ukrinform reports.
“President Zelensky said: ‘Don’t give me a ride, give me ammunition,’ and that’s exactly what the Australian government has agreed to do,” Morrison said.
He said that Australia had committed $50 million to provide both lethal and non-lethal defensive support for Ukraine through NATO.
“The overwhelming majority of that will be in the lethal category,” Morrison said.
He also stressed: “We’re talking missiles, we’re talking ammunition, we’re talking supporting them in their defense of their own homeland in Ukraine and we’ll be doing that in partnership with NATO”.
