Denmark steps up NATO contributions

Parliament has agreed to increase battalion group to 1,000 troops and deploy it to Latvia as per NATO’s wishes 

In wake of the Kremlin’s war in Ukraine, Denmark has decided to boost its military contributions to NATO. 

A broad swath of Parliament was in alignment in relation to increasing its battle-ready battalion group in NATO to 1,000 troops.

“With its brutal invasion, Russia has created the greatest security crisis in Europe since WWII. It is essential that Denmark stands with our allies in NATO in terms of protecting our mutual security and safety,” said the foreign minister, Jeppe Kofod.
