"A strong document that confirms Denmark's unwavering support for our people. In particular, in the amount of at least EUR 1.8 billion this year. Denmark will also support efforts to ensure the full potential of the F-16 through the aviation coalition: providing fighters, ammunition, simulators, training, maintenance," Zelenskyy said.

In the document, Denmark testified that it is committed to supporting Ukraine's efforts to implement reforms on its path to future NATO membership. Denmark recalls that Ukraine belongs to the Euro-Atlantic family and will become a NATO member. The Treaty also reaffirms that Ukraine is part of the European family and has a future in the EU.
