Denmark signs long-term security agreement with Ukraine

Denmark has signed a security agreement with Ukraine, committing to support the country both militarily and civilly for the next decade. Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen announced this commitment during a press conference at Marienborg on 22 February, emphasizing the gravity of the current security situation, DR reported.

The agreement aims to support Ukraine’s ability to defend itself against Russia and deter future Russian attacks. Additionally, Denmark has pledged more than 1.7 billion DKK ($247 million) in the form of a 15th military aid package, which will help secure the purchase of air defense, drones, and 15,000 artillery shells.

“This is the most serious security policy situation since the end of the Cold War. And we cannot stress enough from the Danish government’s side how important it is that Ukraine receives the military capabilities they need,” Frederiksen stated. She further highlighted the importance of unity, saying, “If we don’t stand together, Ukraine won’t stand, and then potentially Europe won’t stand either.”

Denmark’s total support for Ukraine amounts to 34.5 billion DKK, excluding Danish support through the EU, with civilian support accounting for approximately 3 billion DKK. The support includes 407 Stringer missiles, weapon parts for aircraft, mine-clearing equipment, over 100 Leopard 1 tanks, 14 Leopard 2 tanks, 54 M113 armored personnel carriers, artillery shells, and more. Denmark has also initiated training for Ukrainian pilots and support personnel on F-16 fighter jets.
