Ministry of Defense discusses strengthening AFU capabilities with Danish parliamentarians

Deputy Minister of Defense for European Integration Andriy Shevchenko held a meeting with the delegation of the members of the Folketing (Parliament) of Denmark led by Chairperson of the Foreign Policy Committee Michael Aastrup Jensen. The parties discussed the issue of strengthening the capabilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

“Shevchenko thanked parliamentarians, the government, and the people of Denmark for establishing DKK 7 billion (over $1 billion) Ukraine Support Fund to provide military, humanitarian, and economic assistance,” the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine informs.

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.

Jensen expressed admiration for the struggle of the Ukrainian people in the war against Russia and assured of further support for Ukraine on the way to victory.

"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.
