The $26.7 million package of military assistance will see Ukraine provided with six M777 lightweight towed howitzers along with ammunition as Russia steps up its offensive in the Donbas region.
It takes Australia's military assistance contribution to Ukraine to $225 million, with a further $65 million provided in humanitarian aid along with more than 70,000 tonnes of thermal coal.
"The Australian government will continue to identify opportunities for further military assistance where it is able to provide a required capability to the Ukraine Armed Forces expeditiously," Morrison said.
