Netherlands to provide extra €2 bn in military aid for Ukraine in 2024

The Dutch government has earmarked an additional €2 billion ($2.2 billion) in military aid for Ukraine in 2024, in what the country’s defense minister Kajsa Ollongren said was a sign of unwavering support for Kyiv’s war against Russia, Reuters reports.

This funding is part of the Netherlands’ broader support plan for Ukraine next year, which starts with €102 million allocated for reconstruction and humanitarian aid, with provisions for additional funds if required. Ollongren confirmed that with this latest package, Dutch aid to Ukraine amidst the ongoing Russo-Ukrainian war will reach approximately €7.5 billion.

“This will safeguard our support for Ukraine and ensure continuity, which is critical for Ukraine,” Ollongren said.

A general election is scheduled in the Netherlands for 22 November, which is expected to alter the makeup of the current governing coalition.

According to Ollongren, support for Ukraine will be tailored to its evolving needs and could include advanced drone technology. Priorities will continue to focus on air defense, ammunition, and air force assistance, following the establishment of an F-16 training center for Ukrainian pilots by the Dutch, Danish, and other NATO allies.
