The Netherlands decided to allocate 122 million euros to Ukraine for ammunition, weapons, and cybersecurity, according to the government of the Netherlands.

Amsterdam allocates 87 million euros for the purchase of artillery shells for Ukraine. In addition, 25 million euros will be transferred to the International Fund for Ukraine (IFU) for the purchase of weapons.

The government of the Netherlands will also allocate 10 million euros to enhance the cybersecurity of Ukraine.

These contributions are a result of consultations within the Defense and Security Cooperation Group of Ukraine (UDCG), which includes 50 partner countries. They assist Ukraine in acquiring equipment and resources for defense against Russia.

Aid to Ukraine from the Netherlands

After the beginning of the large-scale invasion of the Russian Federation, the Netherlands provides Ukraine not only with defense but also with financial assistance. At the end of November, the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands announced plans to provide 2.5 billion euros to support Ukraine in 2024.

The Netherlands also sent tanks and other military equipment to Ukraine, and together with Denmark led an aviation coalition.

On December 22, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said that the country's government had decided to prepare the first 18 F-16 fighters for transfer to Ukraine .
