Denmark is providing military and humanitarian support

Since Russia began its invasion of Ukraine, Denmark has decided to help Ukraine in a number of areas. Denmark is contributing militarily and providing Ukraine with donations, healthcare, humanitarian and macro-financial support. Here you can see the sort of assistance Denmark is offering.

People fleeing Ukraine are welcome in Denmark

A broad political majority is in agreement about helping people fleeing from the war in Ukraine. In addition to humanitarian and emergency aid in Ukraine, Denmark will provide support to neighbouring countries accepting the majority of the refugees – for example with materiel, help in running accommodation, basic healthcare and education. Denmark is also ready to accept Ukrainians on Danish soil and assist Ukrainians already in the country.
