“Military equipment, without which the Armed Forces of Sweden can do for a certain time, will be transferred to Ukraine. The aid package includes anti-tank weapons, demining equipment, Robot 57 anti-tank missiles and CV90 infantry fighting vehicles, with a total cost of 4.3 billion kroner,” the Parliament of Sweden said.

The approved changes to the budget will enter into force on February 13, 2023. This is already the tenth package of Swedish military aid to Ukraine since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion. It consists of three parts, and one of them will be allocated to Archer self-propelled artillery installations – their transfer requires additional training. Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson instructed to carry out such preparations.
