UK, Denmark donate more money, weapons to Ukraine

STORY: Denmark will increase its financial aid to Ukraine by 110 million euros ($114 million), Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said at a conference in Copenhagen hosted by Ukraine, Denmark and Britain.

The new measures will take Denmark's total aid to Ukraine since the start of the war to the equivalent of more than $417 million.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy also addressed the delegates saying his country needed armour and ammunition for its defense.

Britain, which has already donated advanced weapons systems to Ukraine and given thousands of its troops military training, said it would send more multiple-launch rocket systems.

The announcements come after the government in Kyiv repeatedly pleaded with the West to send more weapons, including long-range artillery, as it tries to turn the tide on Russia's Feb. 24 invasion.
