Iceland is joining two coalitions providing support to Ukraine - the IT Coalition and the Demining Coalition, and is allocating 340,000 euros through NATO's comprehensive aid package for the purchase of medical supplies for Ukraine," according to the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

"Iceland is joining two coalitions providing support to Ukraine - the IT Coalition and the Demining Coalition. Iceland has also announced additional funding of 340,000 euros through NATO's Comprehensive Aid Package for the purchase of medical supplies for Ukraine," the statement said.

The ministry notes that since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Iceland has provided humanitarian, economic, and security support to Ukraine mostly through international organizations such as the UN, the World Bank, NATO, and other multinational forums.

 

 

"Grateful to the government and people of Iceland for powerful support. Thanks to our partners, we will be able to strengthen information technology, communication, and cybersecurity, as well as have the necessary training and equipment for demining," said Ukraine's Minister of Defense Rustem Umerov.

On the other hand, Iceland's Minister of Foreign Affairs Bjarni Benediktsson expressed hope that their support would contribute to strengthening Ukraine's defense capabilities.

"By joining the coalitions and providing additional funding within NATO's comprehensive aid package, we continue our non-lethal support to Ukraine in the fight against the unjust and illegal invasion by Russia," he added.

Currently, the IT Coalition consists of eight countries: Estonia, Luxembourg, Belgium, Denmark, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Japan. The United Kingdom and Italy have also announced their intention to join.
