During the G7 summit in Hiroshima, the American president, Joe Biden, will announce a new military package for Ukraine worth 375 million dollars.
An official told the news agency Reuters on Friday.
The amount corresponds to approximately DKK 2.5 billion.
The military package will include artillery, ammunition and Himars missile systems.
The G7 countries are Canada, USA, UK, Germany, France, Italy and Japan. Together they represent just under half of the global economy. The EU also participates in the meetings.
They meet these days in the city of Hiroshima, a Japanese city that in 1945 was the target of an American atomic bomb during the Second World War.
The Himars system is most often mounted on the back of a car, and according to the British media BBC, it can launch six missiles in a short time.
The missiles have a range of approximately 80 kilometers.
Japan’s government confirms on Saturday, according to Reuters, that the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelenskyj, will physically participate in the G7 summit on Sunday.
Earlier it had been announced that he would only participate via video.
On Friday, Ukraine got another sign that more aid is on the way.
It happened when Joe Biden said that the United States supports a joint effort to train Ukrainian pilots to fly F-16 fighter jets.
It is seen as an important signal to Ukraine’s government, which for several months has been in demand for advanced fighter jets such as the F-16.
So far, the United States has refused to supply this type of aircraft to Ukraine. From the American side, there were no direct reports on Friday that this attitude has changed either.
Initially, training in the American-produced aircraft will begin in Europe.
A decision will then be made in the coalition to actually deliver aircraft.
