– It is critical for Europe’s and Norway’s security that Ukraine succeeds in repelling Russia’s unfounded attack. To do this, Ukraine needs international support of military equipment and training. Norway has made substantial contributions throughout 2022, and will continue to support Ukraine in 2023 and as long as it takes, says the Norwegian Minister of Defence, Bjørn Arild Gram.
The artillery shells are delivered from the Norwegian Armed forces’ own stock, taking into account the implications for national preparedness.
– Ukraine needs continuous military equipment supply to fight the Russian aggressor, and we will look even deeper at what we can donate directly from the Armed Forces or through acquisitions from the defense industry, as well as through combinations of the two sources, says Gram.
