Finland is set to deliver additional military materiel to Ukraine as the latter continues to battle the Russian invasion.

Finnish President Sauli Niinistö has approved a proposal from the government to send another defence shipment to the war-affected country.

The government did not disclose the details of the armament package.

“To ensure that the assistance reaches its destination, more detailed information on the content of the assistance, manner of delivery, or schedule will not be provided.

“Both Ukraine’s needs and the resources of the Defence Forces have been taken into account when deciding on Finland’s additional assistance.”

It also added that the decision will not impact Finland’s national defence capability.

The move comes more than three weeks after Finland announced that it will ship a consignment of arms, rifles, and anti-tank weapons to Ukraine.

The Nordic nation also sent combat ration packages, composite helmets, bulletproof vests, as well as medical equipment.

After Russia launched the invasion, several countries provided lethal and non-lethal military aid to Ukraine.

The UK recently announced that it will send 6,000 new defensive missiles, comprising anti-tank and high explosive weapons, to Ukraine.

Leaders of the Nato member countries met in Brussels to discuss the response to the Russian aggression on Ukraine.

They agreed to strengthen their defensive posture on the eastern flank of the alliance.

The members also approved establishing four new Nato battle groups in Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania, and Slovakia, respectively.

Nato already has four existing battlegroups in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland.
