Denmark, Sweden to provide Ukraine with additional infantry fighting vehicles

Denmark and Sweden have decided to jointly finance the donation and production of additional CV90 infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs) for Ukraine, the Danish Ministry of Defense announced on 18 December. This decision follows Ukraine’s request for more of these vehicles after Sweden had already donated 50 CV90s.

Danish Defense Minister Troels Lund Poulsen highlighted the exemplary defense cooperation between Denmark and Sweden, both bilaterally and within NATO, NORDEFCO, and the EU frameworks, emphasizing the importance of this agreement for supporting Ukraine’s fight for freedom against Russia.

The Danish government has allocated 1.8 billion DKK (approx. $250 million) for 2023 to support this donation, which includes not only the CV90 vehicles but also spare parts, ammunition, and a multi-year maintenance agreement to ensure logistical support after delivery.

As part of the Danish-Swedish collaboration, the aid package includes military support to Ukraine valued at over 7 billion DKK (approx. $1 billion) for 2023-2026. This package comprises essential material and ammunition types to maintain Ukraine’s defense capabilities and combat power.

In addition to the collaboration with Sweden, the donation involves agreements to purchase weapons, ammunition, and materials in cooperation with the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, Estonia, and the Czech Republic.
