Slovenia to send additional material aid to Ukraine

Ljubljana – Under a government decision taken at Friday’s correspondence session, Slovenia will send Ukraine material assistance in the form of IP phones, computers, petrol generators, antennas and cables, the Defence Ministry said.

The estimated value of the aid, including transport, is nearly EUR 180,000. The ministry is in charge of the project that will be carried out through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism.

The aid includes 100 IP phones, 40 desktop computers and 60 laptops.

The mechanism is designed to coordinate the EU’s joint response to Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine and to coordinate the provision of material assistance to Ukraine and neighbouring countries.

Since the start of the war in Ukraine, Slovenia has been helping the country in various ways, including by accepting refugees and sending humanitarian aid.
