The government of Denmark is sending a monetary contribution of NOK 220 million to Ukraine to help the country deal with the consequences of the conflict in the east.
The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced the information on Sunday, at the same time as Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod visited the front between the Ukrainian forces and the Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.
The assistance is part of the Danish peace and stabilization program for Ukraine, which will last until 2025.
“There is no doubt that we all – in light of the very disturbing security situation, with Russia’s threats against Ukraine, and, thus, against the whole of Europe – must look at how we can contribute,” Kofod said.
According to Kofod, the Ukrainian soldiers are very concerned about the latest developments in the conflict with Russia.
Recently, around 100,000 Russian soldiers have been deployed near the border with Ukraine, which has increased fears of invasion.
