Since Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, SWEDEN has provided military, humanitarian and civil support to support Ukraine.

Since February 2022, Sweden contributed approximately SEK 52 billion (approx. EUR 4,5 billion*) to various initiatives that support Ukraine (29 May 2024). Together with the EU, Sweden has also adopted macroeconomic support and several sanctions packages against Russia.

With last February news of handing over all Combat Boat 90( CB 90 Class) fast interceptors originally built by Dockstavarvet at Docksta for the Swedish Armed Forces.

On Wednesday 29th May the Swedish government announced its 16th military aid package to Ukraine that includes early warning aircraft, missiles and air defense systems — a reaction to Russia’s ongoing offensive.

“Sweden will donate a new military capability to strengthen Ukraine’s air defense. Package 16 will be the largest military aid package yet at €1.16 billion. Sweden will donate Airborne Surveillance and Control aircraft (ASC 890) to Ukraine,” tweeted Swedish Defense Minister Pål Jonson.

The early warning aircraft will work with the F-16 fighter jets that Ukraine will receive this year, he said.
