“Ukraine is asking us for ammunition and artillery now. We, Denmark, have decided to give Ukraine all our artillery,” Frederiksen said.

“Europe has military equipment, it’s not just a matter of production,” she added.

In addition, she called on European countries to provide the Ukrainian Armed Forces with ammunition and air defense systems, as Ukraine needs them more.

The minister also noted that Europeans do not need to wait for the crisis to be resolved before approving funding for supplies from the United States to Ukraine.

“It doesn’t matter what the US comes up with, but we, Europeans, have to protect ourselves. This is a war on the European continent,” Frederiksen said.

Earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy blamed his partners for keeping Ukraine in an artificial shortage of weapons, in particular artillery and long-range weapons, allowing Russia to adapt to the intensity of the fighting.
