Sweden has planned to deliver more arms to Ukraine, including anti-tank weapons, as well as mine-clearing equipment to enhance the troubled country capacity to defend herself from Russian onslaughts.

The defence ministry in Stockholm announced this on Thursday.

The planned arm support package was worth about 500 million Swedish kronor ($48.7 million).

Sweden, which like its neighbour Finland applied for NATO membership in mid-May, and Turkey had lifted its objection to the two countries accession of NATO.

Turkey on Tuesday agreed to lift its opposition to Sweden and Finland joining NATO, a breakthrough in an impasse clouding a leaders’ summit in Madrid amid Europe’s worst security crisis in decades triggered by the war in Ukraine.

Sweden had earlier supplied Ukraine with various military equipment and goods on four previous occasions.

This included thousands of anti-tank handguns, personal protective equipment, food, mine-clearing equipment, firearms and a naval target robot.

The Swedes had also provided financial support to Ukraine.
