The statement said the equipment offers further support to combat Russia’s “brutal, unrelenting and illegal invasion” of Ukraine.

The Australian government vowed to continue to identify opportunities for additional assistance to boost the capability of the Ukraine Armed Forces.

“Australia stands with the people of Ukraine and again calls on Russia to cease its unprovoked, unjust and illegal invasion of Ukraine”, the government noted.
