Denmark will donate an additional 45 tanks to Ukraine, including 15 modernized T-72 tanks and 30 Leopard 1 tanks, the country's defense ministry told CNN on Tuesday. Copenhagen is also sending Kyiv additional arms, ammunition and mine-clearing equipment.
The donation is part of a joint initiative between the defense ministries of Denmark, the Netherlands and the Czech Republic, which "share the understanding that the continued provision of materiel from industry stocks and production would be of vital importance for the military capabilities of Ukraine," according to a joint statement.
Meanwhile, Norway is also set to donate about 50 tracked cargo carriers to Ukraine, its government announced Tuesday. This type of vehicle is able to maneuver in terrain inaccessible for wheeled vehicles.
"The cargo carriers can transport ammunition, food and water to Ukrainian troops in the field," the Norwegian government said.
Norway has previously donated "a wide range of capacities to Ukraine," including ground-based air defense systems and battle tanks. It's also among the nations providing F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine.
