Slovenia's assistance during the war

Slovenia, like other EU countries, has supported Ukraine in the war with Russia. The country has provided several packages of military aid to the Ukrainian army.

According to media reports, Slovenia may also transfer dozens of armored combat vehicles, infantry fighting vehicles, anti-aircraft systems, and other weapons to Ukraine. The new aid package may also include a batch of drones.

Earlier, the President of Slovenia stated that she would sign a security guarantees agreement with Ukraine on June 27, but this did not happen. The country's Prime Minister suggested that it might happen in July.
