The deputy minister also expressed his gratitude to Denmark for joining the initiative of EU countries to supply Ukraine with 1 million artillery rounds.
“Denmark's contribution to the common cause of defeating the enemy is extremely valuable for Ukraine. Since the beginning of the full-scale war, the Danish people have provided comprehensive assistance to Ukraine and the Armed Forces of Ukraine. We are determined to further fruitful defense cooperation between the countries. The Vilnius NATO Summit is coming soon, so Ukraine expects clear and strong security guarantees. We hope for Denmark's support for our country's efforts on the way to the EU and the North Atlantic Alliance membership,” Shevchenko noted.
The foreign guests were also informed about the situation on the front of the Russian-Ukrainian war, in particular the current hostilities in Donetsk direction and threats from Belarus.

"The whole world admires the bravery of Ukrainian soldiers, their courage, strength of resistance, and determination to defend their country. You are fighting not only for your freedom but also for the freedom of the whole of Europe. Denmark will continue to help and will stand side by side with your people until victory," the chairperson of the Foreign Policy Committee of the Danish Parliament emphasized.
