Ukraine will receive new military aid package from Norway: winter clothing, self-propelled guns and artillery spare parts
Norway provides a new package of military aid to Ukraine. It includes winter clothing, an M109 self-propelled artillery mount, and artillery spare parts.
This was announced by the Minister of Defense of Norway, Bjørn Arild Gram, the Norwegian TV channel TV 2 reports.
The Minister noted: "Ukrainians, of course, asked about winter clothes. There are some countries, including our northern friends, who are now joining forces to donate clothes. There is a great need for them now."
So Norway is handing over 55,000 units of winter clothing, 30,000 field rations, and approximately 55,000 dressing materials. Clothes for the needs of the Ukrainian army were either taken from stocks or purchased.
In addition, Norway is transferring the self-propelled guns M109. In total, the country has already transferred 22 such installations since the beginning of the full-scale war. Also, 20,000 spare parts are transferred to these self-propelled guns.
Norway also allocates NOK 150 million (approximately $15 million) to the EU military mission in support of Ukraine.
Recently, the Norwegian government announced it would allocate almost 1.5 billion Norwegian kroner (about 144 million US dollars) to the International Fund, which is led by the United Kingdom, to support Ukraine.
Earlier, Norway already donated NOK 400 million to the fund. According to Gram, these funds were used to purchase drones, equipment for jamming them, and artillery shells.
