Finland plans to send its 22nd military aid package for Ukraine, valued at approximately €190 million.
Finnish President Sauli Niinistö confirmed the decision following a proposal from the government. The estimated total cost of the package amounts to €190 million, covering the expenses for replacing essential equipment for the Finnish army.
The package comprises equipment acquired from the Finnish industry, valued at €30 million.
With this latest contribution, Finland’s cumulative military assistance to Ukraine since the onset of Russia’s full-scale invasion totals €1.8 billion.
For security reasons, details regarding the package contents and the expected delivery timeline to Ukraine remain undisclosed.
“At both the national and broader levels, we must explore new avenues for long-term support to Ukraine. We are presently devising a comprehensive plan for sustained assistance to Ukraine. Our industry possesses significant expertise, and we are actively leveraging this expertise and capacity in our ministry to extend support to Ukraine,” stated Finnish Defence Minister Antti Häkkänen.
It is also added that Finland is a member of what is known as the Artillery Coalition and the Mine Action Coalition within the Ramstein format.
Earlier reports indicated that Nammo Lapua, a Finnish company, would increase its ammunition production significantly, aiming to increase output fivefold this year.
