Australia to provide additional military aid to Ukraine

The Australian Government will provide a new $110 Million military assistance package / military aid to Ukraine. This assistance will help Ukraine defend and support itself against Russia’s illegal, immoral and unprovoked invasion.

This package responds to Ukraine’s requests for vehicles and ammunition, and will make a tangible difference on the battlefield. It includes:

  • 70 military vehicles, including: 28 M113 armoured vehicles, 14 Special Operations Vehicles, and 28 MAN 40M medium trucks and 14 trailers.
  • Supply of 105mm artillery ammunition.
  • $10 million to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, who manage the Ukrainian Humanitarian Fund, to help meet needs for shelter, health services, clean water and sanitation.

In addition, Australia will extend duty-free access for goods imported from Ukraine for a further 12 months, to support its recovery and trade opportunities.

These commitments announced bring Australia’s total contribution in support of Ukraine to $790 million, including $610 million in military assistance.
