Denmark donates 91 million Danish kroner (13.3 million dollars) to projects supporting the development of cybersecurity and defense for the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, reports the Ministry of Defense of Denmark.

"The donation is made under the auspices of the IT Coalition for Ukraine, led by Estonia and Luxembourg, which Denmark joined along with several other countries," the statement says.

It is noted that cyber attacks are an integral part of Russia's war against Ukraine, where Russia seeks to weaken Ukraine's ability to defend itself through cyber attacks.

Therefore, Denmark and other members of the IT Coalition signed a cooperation agreement in connection with the meeting of the Contact Group on Defense for Ukraine.

"This donation is a significant contribution to the long-term support of strengthening Ukraine's cybersecurity. Since the beginning of the invasion, Denmark has made a substantial contribution to the Ukrainian liberation struggle, and this also applies to the cyber domain," said Defense Minister Troels Lund Poulsen.

Denmark's assistance to Ukraine
Copenhagen has already provided defensive assistance to Ukraine amounting to approximately 2.8 billion euros following Russia's widespread invasion.

In addition, the Danish government has also provided humanitarian aid to Ukraine totaling 378 million euros.

Recently, the Danish government decided to provide Ukraine with a new support package totaling 1 billion euros.
