The Ministry of Defense of Finland announced the provision of the twelfth batch of military aid to Ukraine on January 20, 2023. The press release of the Ministry of Defense of Finland says that heavy artillery and ammunition will be included in this aid package.
“Ukraine continues to need support in defending its territory and the current package of defense material is clearly the largest one to date. Finland supplies heavy artillery and munitions to Ukraine,” the Minister of Defense of Finland Mikko Savola says.
When deciding on the provision of additional assistance, both the needs of Ukraine and the resources of the Armed Forces of Finland are taken into account.
“For operational reasons and to ensure that the delivery reaches its destination, more detailed information on the content of the assistance, manner of delivery or schedule will not be provided,” added the Ministry of Defense of Finland.
It should be noted that Helsinki has already sent 590 million euros of military aid to Ukraine.
Earlier, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Finland, Pekka Haavisto, said that the country was ready to provide Ukraine with all the necessary weapons, including tanks.
