The Swedish government is preparing to allocate the 13th aid package to Ukraine, reports SVT.
According to Defence Secretary Paul Johnson, the package will include ammunition for the Stridsfordon 90 and Archer systems, spare parts, as well as trucks and demining equipment.
Johnson hopes that the Riksdag can approve the government's proposal this week. So far, Sweden has transferred defence equipment to Ukraine worth about 17bn Swedish krona.
"The counteroffensive is in a tense phase. We have to be prepared for the fact that it will be a long-term war, and we also have a long-term perspective so that we can maintain the platforms and systems that we send," said the Swedish Minister of Defence.
In addition, Johnson emphasised the importance for Ukraine to have a well-functioning air defence. Therefore, it is proposed to sell AMRAAM missiles to the USA, which will then be transferred to our country.
According to the minister, the new support package means that the capabilities of the Swedish armed forces will deteriorate in the short term, and their needs to be fixed as soon as possible.
Last month it became known that Sweden allocates 522 million euros for the reconstruction of Ukraine. The money will go to infrastructure and demining.
The leaders of the USA and Northern European countries at the summit promised to continue supporting our country.
