European nations to send more armaments to Ukraine

Copenhagen, Mar 16 (Prensa Latina) Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen on Thursday announced that some Western countries are presently discussing the chance of sending more armaments to Ukraine, including fighter jets.

Polish President Andrzej Duda also said his country will send four Mig 29 fighters to Kyiv in the coming days.

In a press conference Frederiksen stated the armament to be supplied to Ukraine is currently being analyzed, but assured there is already a commitment to send battle tanks and artillery.

According to local media, Denmark has so far provided about €658 million in military aid to Ukraine since the beginning of Russia’s special military operation on February 24, 2022.

Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov, on the other hand, reaffirmed that attempting to saturate Ukraine with armaments are not conducive to negotiation progress and will have a negative impact on the situation.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov recently pointed out that EU-NATO cooperation agreement explicitly places Europe in a subordinate position.
