Denmark has become the first country to make a donation in the project “ZBROYARI: Manufacturing Freedom” for the purchase of Ukrainian weapons for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. We are talking about 200 million Danish crowns ($28.5 million) for the purchase of weapons and military equipment for the Armed Forces of Ukraine from Ukrainian manufacturers. These funds are provided as part of the new Danish aid package to Ukraine. A total of approximately DKK 2.2 billion has been allocated.

This was reported by the Ministry of Static Industries of Ukraine.

The “ZBROYARI: Manufacturing Freedom” project is a global fundraising campaign whose goal is to raise $10 billion for the production of Ukrainian weapons this year.

“Today we have our first donation. This decision is significant, it opens the way for other countries – and we are incredibly grateful to the Danish government and the Danish people for their leadership,” said Alexander Kamyshin, Minister of Strategic Industries.

He added that a huge team in Ukraine and Denmark worked on this solution.

The ministry notes that the decision to create this project is unprecedented – when military products for the Ukrainian Defense Forces are purchased from Ukrainian manufacturers at the expense of another state.

It is due to the fact that production The capabilities of the Ukrainian defense industry significantly exceed the purchasing power of the state budget.

“The wealth of the Ukrainian defense industry is about $20 billion. At the same time, Ukraine has only $6 billion for the purchase of weapons. Roughly speaking, we only have a third of all the machines that we have in the country, because there is not enough money to supply the rest with orders,” – profile minister

Therefore, according to Kamyshin, the optimal way out of this situation is to convince partners that they are ready to buy weapons for Ukraine, and to do it in Ukraine. This is how the project “ZBROYARI: Manufacturing Freedom” was born.
