Latest Updates on the Ukraine/Russia Crisis

Whilst at its core a humanitarian crisis, the Russian invasion of Ukraine risks adding materially to existing global economic and supply challenges. We are likely heading into a period in which geopolitics will become a regular part of boardroom discussions. Recent developments have seen Russian companies make significant progress around the world to supply countries with equipment in various Aerospace, Defense & Security sectors. This means that countries dependent on Russian arms for their security calculations should review all purchases and clauses regarding their programs and payments.

Finland has announced that it will send arms, rifles and anti-tank weapons to Ukraine to help the country resist the Russian invasion.

The move comes after Finnish President Sauli Niinistö agreed to send military aid on the proposal of the government.

The package is expected to include 2,500 assault rifles, 150,000 cartridges for the attack rifles and 1,500 single-shot anti-tank weapons.

Finland will also supply 70,000 combat ration packages to Ukraine.

The country previously announced that it would send 2,000 composite helmets and 2,000 bulletproof vests, as well as 100 stretchers and equipment for two emergency medical care stations.

Several countries have announced defence material support for Ukraine after Russia launched a military operation in the country.

The US Government has approved an additional $350m worth of weapons and ammunition for Ukraine.

Luxembourg’s Defence Minister Francois Bausch has announced that the country will send 100 NLAW anti-tank weapons, jeeps and 15 military tents to Ukraine.

The Slovakian government has approved two batches of military assistance, which will include 486 air-defence missiles and anti-tank rockets, 100 air-defence launchers, 120mm artillery ammunition, as well as fuel.

Australia is also working with the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) and other partners to provide military equipment to Ukraine.

The country will donate $3m to NATO’s Trust Fund for Ukraine to support non-lethal military equipment and medical supplies.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has also called on countries to continue defensive weapon supplies amid the intensifying crisis.

Reuters quoted a UK government spokesperson as saying: “The prime minister stressed the need for countries to continue supporting the Ukrainian government, including with the provision of defensive weapons.

“The prime minister welcomed the unity of message and action between countries in recent days in response to Russia’s invasion.

“He stressed the need to continue applying pressure on Putin’s regime, including on SWIFT, with sanctions and with trade restrictions.”
