Sweden has announced a new package of military aid for Ukraine, including combat boats.

This was stated by the Minister of Defense of Sweden, Paul Johnson, reported by Folkbladet.

"By supporting Ukraine, we are also investing in our own security. If Russia were to win this terrible war, we would have much greater security problems than today," he said.

According to him, the 15th aid package is seen as an important signal to Ukraine on the eve of the anniversary of the war's start that Swedish support will continue, and also as a signal to Russia that Sweden will not abandon the war-torn country.

The new package of military aid consists of 10 combat boats and 20 group boats, as well as underwater armament such as mines and torpedoes, totaling 1.1 billion Swedish kronor. The package also includes artillery ammunition compatible with the Archer system previously sent by Sweden.

Additionally, the Robot 70 anti-aircraft defense system, already in Ukraine's arsenal, is part of the package. Also included are anti-tank missiles, Carl Gustaf grenade launchers, and military equipment such as hand grenades, medical equipment, and medical vehicles.
