PM Mette Frederiksen was in Ukraine yesterday to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kiev. 

During her visit, Frederiksen announced that Denmark would give 600 million kroner in military aid to Ukraine. 

“From the beginning, Denmark has given considerable support to Ukraine. Politically, economically, through sanctions and via equipment and weapons that you have lacked,” Frederiksen told Zelenskyy during a press conference.

“We will do what we can to continue to support Ukraine in the future.”

Hearts and mines
With the new 600 million kroner pledge, the Danes have set aside 1 billion kroner to help boost Ukraine’s military since Russia invaded.

Additionally, Frederiksen said that Denmark will also assist Ukraine in clearing out mines in areas once again under Ukrainian control.

This will help Ukraine rebuild areas that have seen significant destruction over the past few weeks.
