The Swedish government is preparing a SEK3.4 billion (USD313.4 million) military aid package for Ukraine, the authority announced on 15 August.

The assistance includes ammunition and spare parts for several of the equipment donated to Ukraine by Sweden, including the CV90 armoured fighting vehicles (AFVs) and Leopard 2 main battle tanks (MBTs).

In addition, Sweden intends to supply, via the US, its licensed RB 99 AIM-120B Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AMRAAMs) to Ukraine. This will involve the US acquiring the missiles before donating them to Ukraine. Sweden will then have the option to procure more modern AMRAAMs, the announcement detailed.

Transport vehicles and mine clearing equipment are also being donated as part of the support package.

Following this donation, Sweden will have contributed over SEK20 billion in military support to Ukraine since the conflict began in 2022.
