"The outcome of the war in Ukraine will determine the security order of Europe and Finland far into the future. This is why we will continue our determined support for Ukraine together with our allies," stated Minister of Defense Antti Kaikkonen.

He mentions that the total value of defense equipment packages supplied by Finland to Ukraine is currently 1.4 billion euros. For operational reasons and to ensure the secure delivery of the aid, the specific contents of this package will not be disclosed.

Finland has been providing Ukraine with both defense and humanitarian aid since the start of Russia's full-scale military aggression.

The Finnish government recently issued instructions to develop a plan for Finland's participation in Ukraine's recovery.

It has also been reported that the Finnish government is preparing another package of military aid for Ukraine, making it the 19th package.
