TALLINN – The Estonian government has decided to send another package of military aid to Ukraine, consisting mainly of drones, personal protective equipment and winter uniforms.

Estonia is supporting Ukraine with individual equipment such as body armor, ballistic plates for body armor, field uniforms, including winter uniforms and other clothing and accessories. In addition, drones, weapons cleaning kits, an ambulance breathing apparatus and more will be sent to Ukraine.

"Ukraine still needs our help and support in standing up to the Russian aggression. Our assistance package this time responds to the requests for assistance received from Ukraine, as well as bilateral agreements between the defense forces and the Kaitseliit with their partners in Ukraine," Estonia's Minister of Defense Hanno Pevkur said. 

Previously, Estonia has donated Javelin anti-tank missiles, howitzers, anti-tank mines, anti-tank grenade launchers, mortars, vehicles, communication equipment, medical supplies, personal protective equipment and tactical food packs to Ukraine.

In cooperation with Germany, Estonia has donated two field hospitals and medical supplies worth nearly 15 million euros to Ukraine. A third field hospital will be donated to Ukraine in cooperation with the Netherlands and Norway, who have contributed 7.8 million euros towards the project.
