Belgium will provide military assistance to Ukraine in the amount of 12 million euros within a new aid package.

This was reported by the Minister of Defense of the country Ludivine Dedonder to L’Echo magazine.

In total, Belgium has already transferred 45 million euros of support to Ukraine.

The new aid package includes heavy machine guns and ammunition for them, as well as non-lethal weapons.

“We will also send non-lethal equipment for winter: helmets, spare equipment, surveillance equipment. In early 2023, we will deliver ambulances and trucks for medical purposes,” said Ludivine Dedonder.

She also stressed that Belgium is ready to assist in sea and ground demining and in training the Ukrainian military.

In addition, the country has already received 45 wounded at the front and seriously ill Ukrainians to its medical institutions.

It should be reminded that at the end of August it became known that Belgium is to allocate 8 million euros for non-lethal assistance to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. We are talking about voluntary contributions to the NATO trust fund, which provides non-lethal assistance to Ukraine.

The help will cover first aid, winter clothing and, if necessary, other equipment, such ad night vision devices and medicines. This is the decision of the heads of state and government of NATO member states at a summit in Madrid in June.

The NATO Comprehensive Assistance Package (CAP) trust fund was created in 2016 after the annexation of the Ukrainian Crimea by the Russian Federation to strengthen support for Ukraine as a partner country and prospective member.
