The Netherlands will provide Ukraine with heavy weapons, armored vehicles and self-propelled howitzers, said Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte.
"Of course, Ukraine needs our military support. We need to support Ukraine with a sophisticated modern type of weapons. I call on all my colleagues in Europe and other parts of the world to help with heavy weapons for Ukraine. We will provide heavy weapons, armored vehicles and self-propelled howitzers from our country," Rutte said at a press conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv on Monday.
He urged allies to do the same.
"We need to help Ukraine economically so that the Ukrainian economy can continue to work - as long as we can, under the current circumstances. We don't know how long this difficult war will last, but we know that Ukraine will continue to need our support when it is finally over," Rutte said.
He added that he calls on the international community to start a discussion on the reconstruction of Ukraine.
