Norway to increase military aid to Ukraine

Oslo, The Gulf Observer: Norway will increase its military aid to Ukraine by 2.5 billion crowns ($240 million) this year to 10 billion crowns, according to media reports.

Prime Minister of Norway Gahr Støre noted that Ukraine is now in dire need of additional military support.

The increase in support is estimated at 75 billion crowns for a total of five years. Norway previously committed to providing 15 billion crowns for civilian and military support in 2023.

Norway will provide 300 million crowns this year and will contribute a total of 1.5 billion crowns over five years.

This is a clear signal of long-term support for Ukraine’s reform efforts and will further tie Ukraine to the alliance, he added.
