A total of 2,700 anti-tank missiles (M72 EC LAW) that the Danish Armed Forces bought from the Norwegian company Nammo in 2018 will now be passed on to Ukraine, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) writes.
This is the first time in recent times that Denmark is donating weapons to a country at war, Danmarks Radio reports.
This weekend, Norway opened the way for ammunition produced in Norway to be re-exported to Ukraine. In principle, the Norwegian regulations do not allow this because Norwegian weapons mustn’t end up in conflict zones.
Formally, Denmark must turn to Norway to be allowed to pass on the weapons, but Norway will not stop the Danish decision.
