Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen signs a security deal to support Ukraine for the next 10 years.

That’s according to DR.

“This is the most serious security policy situation since the end of the Cold War. And we, the Danish government, cannot emphasize enough how important it is that Ukraine receives the military capabilities that they require. If we don’t stand together, Ukraine won’t stand, and potentially Europe won’t either,” stressed Frederiksen.

Denmark is the first Nordic country to show commitment to Ukraine through a security deal.

Danish PM added that it is obvious that Russia does not want peace as the aggressor state keeps transforming itself into an actual war economy and eliminating political opponents. 

“There is a growing fear that what we are seeing in Ukraine is not a final goal for Russia, but rather a milestone on the way to something else,” she warned.

Additionally, the Ministry of Defence of Denmark announced more artillery ammunition, air defense, mine clearance tools and drones within a new large military aid package worth approximately DKK 1.7 billion.

This is the 15th package of military equipment to Ukraine provided by Denmark.
