"Very good to be back in Kyiv, with my colleague Education Minister João Costa, to reiterate our support for Ukraine's reconstruction," he says.

Portugal's assistance to Ukraine

Last March, Ukraine received Leopard 2A6 tanks from Portugal in the amount of three units.

In April, Portugal announced the delivery of five emergency rescue and medical armored vehicles to Ukraine.

In addition, the Portuguese drone manufacturer Tekever is ready to provide Ukraine with some of its long-endurance systems to support land and sea operations.
